I have three messages which show up as unread, even after I open them. The messages icon does not show any unread messages, and the message status persists even after I restart the phone.

Apparently related: this started just after I got a group message which was to (among others) the three people whose messages are now permanently unread. The group MMS itself is marked as read, though.

  • What app are you using? Is it SMS, MMS, IM, email?

  • @RossC: SMS (as tagged). In my interface it's just labeled "Messaging".

    I see this same issue. I cannot find a place to file bug reports for Google Messaging.

    @Izzy: No, I've just stuck with the buggy standard app. I guess I could try that.

    You definitely should. Maybe you'll like the new one even better (I've read 8sms should be a pretty good choice, and can even be made the "default messaging app" if you want that); if not, just use it to mark those messages read and return to what you like more :)
