Samsung Galaxy S3 Message App Error

Hello, My Galaxy S3 Home Screen constantly shows there being 1 unread message. I have gone into messages and deleted everything, and it still appears. I have even done a factory reset a few times and it fixes it for about 24 hours and then starts happening again. I have seen this problem on other forums but have not seen any answers.

Hi TMoff,

Do you have another phone to test this with? There might be some form of network issue where you have an undeliverable message pending to send to you or something to that effect.

Sometimes using the back button or hone button to exit messages solves it. Otherwise a reboot solves it. It's a known s3 issue.

Set it & forget it
