Red message symbol on home screen

Hi I was wondering if you could help, I just noticed a red message icon appeared on my LG shine phone as if a message had failed to send. However there was no such message in any of my sent items or even inbox. Am I barking up the wrong tree completely, does the pic mean something else, and how do I get rid of it?
Pls help!

Re: Red message symbol on home screen

Ok so i was looking into things for this problem..and it seems to be verrrry simple. The KE970 only supports 300 in/outbox messages b4 i deletes the next oldest 1 wen u receive/send. So the simple fix is....delete some text messages or just ignore the red message icon.(from wat i can tell all the red message icon is to warn u that ur messaging is full on ur internal phone slots/memory) Hope this helps

I cant work out how to move shortcut icons i.e Facebook app to a different home screen and how to delete shortcut items from a home screen?

On android, move a Icon/shortcut: press and hold the finger on the icon and drag it to where you want either on the same screen in a different spot or to another adjacent screen then lift finger.
To delete an icon/shorcut, do the same as for moving the icon but this time drag it to the 'Trash bin' symbol at bottom line/middle position of the screen: the icon should turn Red and lifting yiour finger will delete it.
It takes a bit of practice but it is quite easy and safe as you can always get the icon back from the application folder.

Hope it helps!

What does the little red flag on my screen near the battery icon mean?

No smoking, fueling operations going on? Kidding ...

I dunno, somewhere on your LG you will find a listing for phone icons. On the LG's I have owned, it is in the tools directory. It is probably also explained in the owners manual (gasp) if you have it handy. If not, go to You will find your documentation under the support tab.

Lg ks360 red flag

Had the same problem. It is an alert to say you have an unread messenger message. My LG is on Orange and the red flag appeared when I looked at 'Orange Messenger' for the first time. It gave me a long warning message to read, which I just ignored :) I then had the red flag on the screen. Once I went back into Orange Messenger and read the message completely to the end, the flag disappeared.

Weird icon

This double arrow icon is a symbol of the type of network that your cell phone is currently using. Phones work off of different bands and this icon indicated one of them. I suggest leaving it as is. Green means it is currently using that band and red obviously the opposite. Hope this helps

How to text

to text:
1. at the "home" screen, click the button to the left of the analoge stick, this should click on menu taking you to a screen with 9 icons.
2. click the icon on the top row in the middle called "messaging"
3. Select option one "new message"
4. Type whatever the message is using the numbered buttons 0-9.
5. Once finished, select the option "send to", and input the name or number you want to send it too.
6. To make sure it sent, go back to the options screen with "new message" but scroll down to the "sent" box, if the message sent than it would be in there, if not, your message will be in the outbox and it means you have a bad signal. If its in the "outbox" than hit resend and wait to see if it sends.
7. that's the basics of just sending "text" but "pictures" are different,
