After reading a new message from a contact, the new message indicator might have remained on your device, and the LED indicator might have continued to blink.

If you have a device with BlackBerry® Device Software 5.0 or later, you might not have been able to see messages that you typed in the conversation field.

Invitation requests might not have displayed on your device until after you signed out and signed back in.

If you highlighted a contact, "No Name" appeared in menu items such as Email <contact's name> instead of the contact's name.

If you opened the menu on the contact list screen, the My Info option appeared twice.

If you linked a contact with the Contacts application, there was no menu option to remove the link.

In some cases, the application stopped responding after you signed in.
