    Hi everyone,

    I only use the stock messaging app. As of today it is apparently stuck at "1" under the notification. i tried to open up all the texts to get ride of it but cant. Also restarted, rebooted and cleared the app data the phone but no luck.

    any advice?

    thanks!

    I had a similar problem with the unread notification on the gmail app, I ended up having to delete the 2 emails that would not go to unread. Sounds like you may have already tried that with your messaging problem.

    Ok, I know this will sound somewhat elementary but the stock sms app can be bizarre sometimes. Just make sure you actually opened the last text you received (like you were reading it), then hit the back button until you have completely backed out of the sms app. I'm sorry if this sounds painfully basic, but the stock sms app can act up and be stubborn. Did you try this?

    If that doesn't work, delete the app icon from your dock, restart your phone, then add it back to your dock. Did this work?

    What happened was that you had a message notificatition, then your phone was shut off or died. This happened to me twice. I am stuck with a "3". I have no idea of how to get rid of it.

    We have the same problem on a S3 but with the stock email app. Will this solution fix the email app?

    I tried this but there isn't a "badgeprovider" in my all apps. What now?

    I did that. Now my facebook doesn't show the badge, even though it's listed in nova launcher. Wonder if the Nova Launcher folks changed something in a recent update that messed it up.

    The "badge provider" is the application that you're having a problem with. I.e Textra, Gmail, etc.

    I also do not have an app called badgeprovider. I have a s6. No one has answered this question. Does anyone have any idea what to do?
