    My phone has quit giving me visual indicators of new texts, VM, or emails. I still get sound notifications, but not the little graphics indicating new activity in various communications apps. Any thoughts on how to fix? Thanks! Steve

    First just do a Restart of the phone.
    fixes a lot of gremlins.

    2nd, power off, 3 finger startup, select Clear Cache Partition.

    3nd, do an FDR and that almost always fixes funky thing like that.

    Well, are you using a different launcher from the one that came with the phone? Like maybe Nova launcher?
