    Downloading data (animated) symbol always appearing

    As a new Thunderbolt user; I am slowly adjusting to the world of androids. In any case; currently the symbol which indicates "downloading data (animated)" is constantly appearing in upper left corner. This did not start until the 2nd day of use. Anyone know if this is a normal ongoing event? Thanks in advance for any assistance.

    Make sure you open Blockbuster and disable update movies

    or settings/applications/All tab/ Market/Force Close, clear data?

    or switched airplane mode on then rebooting? or a special "turn my data off" dance?

    sorry..had to step away for a bit. tried most of the responses with negative results. this may be a dumb question, but what does "close the window" mean? i very rarely used internet on other phones. in any event, when i am on a webpage, i simply leave it by going to the home screen. is that the right way to leave internet? and regarding the downloading symbol that remains, it stays even if i disconnect from the network. so how is it downloading if not even on a network? i apologize for my clear lack of knowledge in this area, still learning by doing. and thanks for all the responses.

    swipe your finger down from the top and a launcher window opens.... it will give you a tab for clearing it out...that's if they are not running...you can also tap what is there to go to whatever it is....

    Is it the image with an arrow pointing down with a line under it? Does it keep moving or is it sitting still? If it's sitting still you could simply have a file that downloaded and it's done downloading...

    Also, have you tried opening up the Market to see if there's something that keeps trying to download/install but is unsuccessful?
