How do you 'mark as read' all your sms messages in the messaging app
I have searched the forums but didnt come across a solution for this issue, so i wanted to post this up and see if anybody else finds this to be a problem and if they have a workaround.
Reading an sms does not always require to go into the messaging app, and clicking into the individual's thread who has sent you the message, you can simply look at the main screen of the messaging app and see the one line message, or even in the the notification screen i believe. But they are not marked as read if you only do that. Even if i clear the notification the notifications start building up when a new person send you an sms message. It will also show you that you have unread messages on the lock screen. The only way i can see the messages being marked as read is if i manually go into each persons message and view them and exit back to the main messaging screen and repeat it for all the persons who have messaged me. It seems to be a pain and while sometimes i can see the importance of this, it would be nice to have a reset or 'mark as read' button.
Is there some easy way to mark the messages as read so that the notifications dont keep popping up? it would be great if it could be done in the notifications window itself, but even if you can do it in the messaging app that would be sufficient.
Or is it that i might have some settings marked incorrectly?
Thanks in advance, and sorry if this is some very simple workaround.
