Strange Icon on my Bold

About a week ago a new icon showed up at the top of my screen. It's a circle with an arrow pointing to the seven o'clock position and a 1 beside it. Dose ANYONE have any ideas what this is?? I've been to two ATT stores and they don't have a clue.

Need some help and thanks so much in advance.

trouble with media connections/ moving files

I have updated to the latest Desktop Manager (4.7) with Media Manager, and I can connect the Bold to my PC and synchronize successfully. However, neither Media Manager nor Media Sync are able to connect to the Bold. They prompt for password if it happens to be locked, and the Sync app says it's having difficulty and asks if I want to retry, which doesn't work. The manager app simply doesn't show the device. What's going on? I've tried with mass storage mode on or off. I've tried Desktop Manager 4.6 and I've tried without the media apps to connect (I'm used to a WinMo devie that shows the storage card as a drive on the PC, and I just drag and drop - seems Blackberry doesn't like that idea). I've tried writing to the storage card directly, but...

Blackberry Bold & Uncaught Exception (Java) Error

Hey all:

On day 3 w BB Bold, I exp'd an "uncaught exception java.lang.nullpointerexpection" error. Anyone heard of this error and phone failure?

It's a REFURBISHED phone. But I learned affects all BB OS. Starts w losing WiFy signal, then the screen began to brighten on its own, and then froze. ATT store rep saw this error and looked it up, and said is an OS problem and phone would have to go back back. But ATT tel reps say differently. It finally resolved after several resets.

In search on the net, error seems related to some type of conflict with saved SIM contacts and the program mgr/ Outlook contacts.

I like the phone, but this error is troubling. Anyone have exp with this error? Should I not synch my phone w PC? W BB Mgr? W O...

Self made ringtones?

Can we use them on this phone?

Am considering waiting for this phone rather than purchasing the storm. I just don't think I can get used to the touch screen keypad.

Do I require a data plan to access Wi-fi?

I am wanting to get the BB Bold and access email and internet using wi-fi at home and work. I don't really need it while on the road. I am wondering if I can access wi-fi service without needing a subscription to at&t's data plan. Anyone know?

Synchronization questions???


First BB and love it, but the synchronization is so much longer and tedious than Active Sync.
Am I doing something wrong? All I want to do is update any changes made to either the device or Outlook.

Email Problem

Hey everyone. So I haven't been able to receive any emails since Friday. I was wondering if anyone else has had these issues. If not, is there anyway to check what's going on either on the ATT Blackberry website where you set up your emails or do I need to call ATT. Thanks.

Ok, so I have been trying to install the .219 update to my Bold and it won't upgrade. I downloaded the upgrade and I am just connecting my Bold to my PC,I don't have desktop manager, and clicking open the installer and it says that it is running and then it is done in like 5 minutes but when I check the software version on the Bold it says that it is still on .167. Am I doing something wrong? Can someone explain the process please. Thanks.
