Hey,

Blackberry Messenger is a really cool app.  If you have family and/or friends with a Blackberry, you can instant message, send voice files, photos, etc.  I use it regularly with my family and friends, even some of the folks right here in these forums.  If you want to know more about it, go to Blackberry's web site at http://na.blackberry.com/eng/services/blackberrymessenger/ for more info.  If you just want to get rid of the icon from the top of your phone, click on BBM and then cancel out of the program and it will disappear.  It might reappear at a later time, but that is all you have to do to get rid of the icon.  Hope this helps.

I don't have a Bold, but it sounds like you might have 2 BB messenger messages. Do you use BBM?

Hi,

If it is a blue icon, it is the Blackberry Messenger.  If it is a round, Black icon it will be telling you of an update for one of your apps in Blackberry App world.
