    Default clearing unread text messaging badge

    hey guys,

    my stock texting badge on the homescreen is showing that i have 5 unread messages, but when i scroll through, there arent any that are unread. I tried rebooting, clearing the cache/data, and erasing all messages. any suggestions?

    thanks.

    I had the same problem. Mine was stuck on 6. I gave up and installed the Verizon Messages app and I don't have to see the icon anymore.

    I downloaded Nova launcher and never looked back. No more badge icons and my phone flies now. Plus, its free.

    It shouldn't take a 3rd party app for the phone to function properly.

    To each their own, but that is what is so good about Android. If you don't like something, it can be easily changed. I set Nova to resemble stock Android just as the Motorola launcher did except I changed a few of the animations.

    If you feel a 3rd party app isn't neccessary for the phone to function properly, sell it and buy something else.

    Ive noticed this same issue too. To clear you'll need to go to your messages, then tap on individual messages so that only one msgs is shown. Once that us done the msg will be marked as read.

    I agree with you, i too wish there was a way to turn off the 'feature'.

    If anyone is still having this issue...have you had any group messages lately? If you have the delivery reports feature on and send a message to a group, you will get an unread badge for every recipient. They will not show as new messages but will clear when you open the group message.
