HELP!!! Text Messages: 1 Unread? ***!?

my home screen is telling me i have one unread text message.
i checked my inbox and i have none.
i deleted my texts, and still have the same result.
i deleted my deleted items, nothing.
i have no messages in any message folder, yet it still says i have one unread message.

i tried everything i know how to do, so if someone could please help me cure this annoyance, or at least try, i would be very grateful.

thanks for your time

Send yourself one, check it, then delete it. That should reset it to zero.

Are you sure it's not the voicemail envelope?

Nah I used to get this on my 6700 w/ 6.1

I even deleted all my texts, it would still say 1 unread. The fix unread count tool in the kitchen fixed it for me

One Unread Message?

i have the htc mogul from sprint and my home screen tells me i have one unread text message. i tried deleting all my messages, but the problem persists. i am positive there are no messages in any folders, drafts, outbox, sent etc. i have no idea whats going on so if someone could help me out that would be great. im not too great with understanding some of the technical jargon so if we could keep the lingo dumbed down i would appreciate it.

thanks

It's what you use to cook custom roms for your ppc. Let me see if I can find a .cab file for the fix unread count app

I have a similar problem - one 'stuck' email in my mogul's outlook inbox and can't get it out. Tried the 'fixunreadcount.exe' but no joy. Is there another fix/registry hack for this problem?

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Inbox\Setting s]
"SMSAvailable"=dword:1

0=old style
1=threaded style

Be sure to set it back to 1. On my phone, when I had to do it, setting it to 0 took effect immediately and no soft reset was needed, but I had to soft-reset to get back threaded-style messaging.

Additionally, there are some other problems which can occur, which seem to be fixable by the following applications: FixUnreadCount - seems to be the most common "ghost sms" remover, Markallread - think this will work in even the above case, of a message slipping by the threaded application... but then you won't see the text it'll just be marked read, and no clue on the phantom email one.
Try this one that I attached

EDIT: try this also http://forum.ppcgeeks.com/showthread...t=unread+count

had this problem today, it happened when I was on the phone and a text came in and I didn't dismiss it, got stuck somehow, followed the registry change and it fixed it!
