    use the 'search' in the messages folder and make sure you select "unread" only

    I dont have many apps installed I've had my s2 for a few days now. I checked fb but that doesnt have a message.. I'll do a battery pull later today and see if that gets rid of it (it didnt the first time) but IDK what to do!

    I had that same problem for a long time until some one here helped me out and found my problem. Look in your saved folder. You might have a message that you marked saved before you read it, and it saves it as unread and does not become read unless you open while in the saved messages folder.

    i had this issue when SMS messages folder contained 2 messages, DESPITE MY HAVING SMS BLOCKED. I finally found the culprits when I called tech support and they had me open up DM. By looking through the databases, I spotted 2 records in the SMS database. zappped them and fixed the icon issue at the top of the screen. I have no idea how those records got there, seeing as I have SMS blocked. neither did Verizon....

    Have you tried opening your Messages application (not your individual email, if you have them separated), clicking on the date at the top of the list and choosing "Mark Prior Opened"?

    good idea.. since a missed call (and other things) give an envelope and a new message.

    So I got the message to go away but now I have one in facebook lol. Is there an easier way of setting up the notifications or is there a way to just make there not be an icon for when i read them/miss them i wont have to close the icon? it was a missed call, i hadnt scrolled down far enough.. my friend found it in like 3 seconds lol

    Cleared them both! THat un-opened idea worked and helped me find them.. I Just wish there was a better notification system.

    I was just searching through the forums and you hit my question spot on!! I forgot that I accidently saved a bunch of msgs and of course I hadn't read some of them!

    Thanks again

    EXCELLENT advise! This is where most folks forget to look. I have helped at least a dozen friends with this same solution.... Great tip!!!!!
