Text Message Indicator says I have an unread message after I deleted it.
I have a VERY annoying problem that cropped up the other day that I can't seem to fix. A friend sent me a Picture Message and I had my phone locked when it came in. At some point later, when I discovered that I had the message I unlocked my phone and tried to "retrieve" it. It said "Connecting..." and started to download the image and message but then kept saying that it couldn't because it was expired or no longer available. Finally, I gave up and deleted the message.
NOW... the little envelope indicating that I have "new text messages" won't go away, and when I look at my messages, it says I have "1/42" ... meaning I have 1 unread message. Yet, that message is GONE.
QUESTION: How do I clear this deleted (but unread message) out of the phone?

Some common situations that lost text messages you can recover from:
1. accidentally deleted texts on your android phone
2. lost text messages after Android 5.0 updated or other Android upgrade.
3. save text messages from water damaged, crashed, broken or smashed Android phone

On many mobile phones, you only have two options for deleting text messages: deleting one message at a time, or deleting a whole folder at a time. However, the Samsung Intensity (among other phones) gives you the option to delete multiple text messages at once without deleting an entire folder. You just have to know how to do it.
Go into the Messaging menu, either by pressing the upper left option button or by going into the main menu and selecting Messaging (option #2). Select your inbox, then press the upper right option button (Options). Select #9, Msgs View by Contact. The text messages in your inbox are now grouped according to who sent them.
From this view, you can delete multiple text messages at once. Press the upper right option button again and select choice #2, Erase Multiple. Now as your messages are displayed, there is an empty box next to each one. Scroll down through the list and select the messages you want to delete by pressing the center of the directional pad. A check will appear next to that message. To uncheck a message, repeat the same process.
The only messages you won't be able to delete are messages that you've previously marked as locked. If you want to delete a locked message, you'll have to unlock it first, then delete it.
Once you've put a check next to all of the messages that you want to delete, click the upper left option button (Done) and you'll see a confirmation message. Choose whether you want to delete all of the checked messages or only the unread ones, and then click the directional button (OK). The messages you selected will be deleted.
To resume having your messages displayed in chronological order, click the upper right option button and choose option #4, Msgs View by Time.
In order to delete text messages from the device, from the programs menu, tap Text Messaging. On the Text Messaging screen, tap the message thread that you want to delete.
In order to delete the entire thread, press the Menu key and then tap Delete conversation. But if you want to delete a message in a thread, press and hold the message that you want to delete, and then tap Delete message on the options menu.

hi please see that instead of an unread message it might be a unsent message stuck in your outbox, seems you have cleaned your inbox and drafts folders but there is still something stuck in your Outbox folder
the message box is full or some unread messages are there in between messages if one is there also you wil get the same one more thing is that if you delete the message with out reading it then the message alert shows so goto the deleted messages and delete all forever........then seeeee your problem will be gone
you must be using an unlocked phone. This is what happens when the voicemail system tries to let you know when you receive or delete a voicemail. Since you are not using a phone designed for that voicemai system your phone does not know how to interpret it so you get the weird message instead of the indicator letting you know you have voicemail. If it really bugs you your carrier should be able to turn off the notification.
