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.
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.
First take a backup of your sms with SMS Backup and Restore app.
Then delete all the messsage from your messaging app.
Then restore all the sms using SMS Backup and Restore app.
Now again you will see count showing unread sms, but after backup restore, you will also see unread messages also.
Now delete the unread messages and your app will show message count as zero or no unread message.
