incorrect unread text message count
In the messages application, the icons at the bottom of the screen say I have one unread text message. I deleted all of my text messages and it's still there. I rebooted the phone and that didn't help. Any ideas? I have the latest software update.

From your home screen tap menu -> settings -> applications -> manage applications -> all -> Messages -> clear cache and/or data.
To prevent it from happening again, wait a few seconds between reading a message and exiting the app. When the unread number disappears you're good to go.

Re: incorrect unread text message count
I've had unread sms issue a few times. Reset Unread SMS app helped a few times but in the last case it just didn't work. No advice I found in forums helped. So I randomly tried installing alternative SMS managers hoping some would help. Finally Handcent helped - in settings there's 'Mark all as read' and that did the trick. I'm not using Handcent as I'm happy with the stock app but for this particular purpose it served great.
