    Question Phone and Messaging App Icons

    Hello everyone,

    I have just recently started using Android, so far I'm liking the experience, however recently started tweaking it a little and used an app that lets you change the default icon for apps, after changing the Phone and Messaging App icons to the ones of my taste these icons no longer update to show for instance how many missed calls or received new txt messages I have.

    Is it possible to accomplish this with customized icons or am I stocked with the default icons if I want this functionality?

    Thanks in advance.

    Did you make your own icons by customizing it with an app or did you use an icon pack? I can still see missed/unread counts on my messaging and phone apps with the icon pack I'm using.

    Thanks, I'm using an app called "Icon Changer Free" and then have installed some free icon packs, nothing else special besides that, what app do you use to customize the icons?

    I'm using Nova Launcher and an icon pack. Are you using a launcher by any chance?

    Depends on what device you have. Nova and Apex are very similar to the stock Android launcher. Google Now launcher is what you'll find on the Nexus 5.
    Was just asking since some of them don't support unread counts by default.
    If you restore the icon back to how it was so the notifications show again?
