    What you are experiencing is the Google implementation of icon badges. It seems Samsung chose to go with this rather than reinvent the wheel. Unless Google changes something in the next version or Samsung chooses to re-write the Samsung Experience to use its own implementation of badges this is the way it will be.

    I'm sorry that you feel the way you do about the implementation of this feature.

    well i never no i have messages unless i go in the app and being notified of messages is important? if not i do not see the point in having a phone?? - when might the next version or update be? ive seen alot pf people compaling about this, there is no logic, i mean if you get a text or email or anything surely you would want to know it was there?

    Well, Samsung could update the Samsung Experience (the launcher) with its own badges implementation. Otherwise, it'll be whenever Google decides to make the change (if a change is made) and then Samsung decides to release that change to the device (IF that device is slated by Samsung for that OS change).
