    How do I clear the message app

    After I get a text message on my samsung galaxy S3 the message app will say 1, 2 ...and so on depending how many unread text messages I got and have not viewed.
    Once I read the message I cannot delete the number on the app.
    Does anyone know how to do this? The message app will keep that number unless I restart the phone and the message app number disappears.
    Thank you in advance!

    When you open the messaging app, you will see a list of messages. The unread messages will be at the top. You have to open the message by tapping it. When done hit the back button to back out. You will see the message counter reset to the number of unread messages or disappear completely after you have read them all.

    I have done that, I will delete ALL messages and the phone app will not take off the number 1. If I have no text messages or have read and deleted them ALL... the phone still says I have 1 somewhere!

    Does the number stay even if you close out the app!? I know a lot of times if I just close out the app the number will disappear.

    I even tried deleting the app and reinstalling it, which worked for 2 min til I got a new text. Im really frustrated and we seem to be the only two people with this problem. Im going to call samsung tom, to see if they have any solutions?

    Angry Message notification

    omg i have the same problem with my galaxy s3 ! Even after deleting and re-installing the application the stupid problem keeps appearing as soon as a new message pops up. Other than that, I have to keep re-starting my fone for the notification to go away. Even after I have read the message the notification keeps appearing and its soo annoying!

    How to fix SMS notification problem. Go to Settings>Application Manager>All> Messaging> Disable. Go back to home screen and make sure it has disappeared. Repeat procedure above except scroll down to bottom and select Messaging> ENABLE.
    Go to section where your APPS are and locate Messaging Icon and drag back to Home Screen. Then while on Home Screen click and drag Messaging Icon to bottom of screen back where it was.

    It worked for me! Hopefully I helped. Let me know. Also works if having Email problems also.

    Cant get rid of the number in the orange circle.

    I am having the same issue with the messaging app. If a text comes in, the number of texts is shown in an orange circle on the app. If I read the message, it stays there. I can only get rid of it by deleting the message.
