    Battery pull should fix it.

    I had the same problem with my 8330 when I was running 4.3 with the Today theme. My solution will not make any sense, but this is what worked for me. If you haven't deleted the message yet. Go back to your messages folder. Menu button click on it and select "Mark as unread". Then exit out and go back to your home screen. The notification should be gone. Then go back in to messages, read it, and the notification should stay gone.

    I had this issue constantly, and this (other than the ever-faithful battery pull) would fix it. Now that I've upgraded to 4.5, I've had no such problems.

    Hope this helps.

    I had the same problem with the voice mail icon. I'd dial the voice mail "No new messages" Battery pull didn't fix it either. It just went away on it's own after 2 days or so. They tend to fix themselves... Wish my computer could do that

    I had something similar, and it was driving me nuts. Finally, I realized I'd accidentally saved an unread email. Once you save it, it becomes hidden in your inbox, but the icon still shows, because it's unread!

    From your mail screen press alt-I, alt-O, or the letter V. This should bring up incoming, outgoing and saved messages. Could be a message you saved and never read. If it has not been opened it won't go away until deleted.

    I was having this issue on my new Bold 9930. It turns out alt-I in my Gmail account was necessary.

    Thanks, it was driving me crazy.

    Crowleyman, thanks for the help! That was exactly what happened to me. I accidentally saved an e-mail and it was being shown as unread. It was driving me insane! All the best to you! PS: I had tried everything, including pulling the battery.

    same here, just upgraded my 9900's OS and phantom emails were in my gmail account. Alt-I showed the emails and now everything is back to normal. CB forums to the rescue yet again.

    Folks,
    I was having the same annoying unopened / unread message icon that was not going away even after reading all mails or messages. I have noticed the number of unopened messages count increases each time I do a phone battery pull. Recently I have noticed, this is a blackberry mobile phone registration message with BB icon. Go to messages and search for all unopened messages (Don't enter any phrase in search area). You will find the message with blackberry icon. open it or delete it. You're done
