The icons on your Blackberry Curve's display alert you to the phone's condition, new messages and battery concerns. Understanding the icons that appear is the key to identifying problems when they occur and monitoring the activity on your Curve. Your battery indicators change based on the battery's condition. Protect your phone from a dead battery or long-term battery damage by understanding the icons and their meanings.

Charging Icon

When your Blackberry Curve is charging, the battery icon appears with a lightning bolt down the centre, creating the image of a "broken" battery icon. Watch for the broken image to appear to confirm that your battery is charging when you plug it in. This protects you from draining your battery, discharging it completely.

Red Line Icon

When the battery icon appears with a red line through the centre, your Curve is alerting you to a battery error. This icon appears when the battery you installed in your Curve is not supported by the phone, or is not recognised due to contact problems. Change the battery to one supported by the Blackberry Curve.

Battery Power Icon

The battery icon will show half bars, resembling a half-broken battery, when the phone has used up half of the battery life available. The bars within the battery icon disappear as the battery depletes, so a half-broken image of the battery indicates that your Curve's battery has only half of the usable life left before you need to charge it again.

Technical Support

If the icon your Curve displays does not match these, the technical support staff for your wireless carrier or Research In Motion may be able to help you understand the cause. Contact your wireless provider or the phone's manufacturer for suggestions.
