I am using Samsung Galaxy S III. My call log always shows '13' missed calls. I tried with restarting the phone etc., But no change. Is there any way to fix the issue without resetting the phone?

  • Have you checked out that there is no broken or un-read message in inbox. Also try a third party message app like GO SMS/Handcent SMS from play store and check if they reolve the problem. Also when have you get started this notification? – avirk Oct 21 '12 at 5:53
  • Sorry. The question is for my friend. Its not related with message, but call log. – Rauf Oct 21 '12 at 15:09
  • Is there an alternate dialer app installed? Go Contacts Ex on my wife's Galaxy S II (running Jelly Bean, and previously ICS) is having the same issue. Opening up the stock Phone app and going to the Call Log tab resets the "stuck" missed calls counter. – Chahk Oct 22 '12 at 16:05
  1. Go to Settings > Application Manager > All applications (in the tabs across the top).
  2. Check in Downloaded, Running and All
  3. Locate and tap the BadgeProvider app.
  4. Tap Clear data to reset the counter.

I had the same problem and this is how I fixed it:

I went to the phone icon and then went to logs, then clicked on "view by miss call" in the top. I deleted all the missed calls by putting a check mark on each on. That fixed my issue and the missed calls on my phone icon got removed.
