Question about LG enV VX9900 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Text Message Indicator says I have an unread message after I deleted it.

Hello,

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?

Thanks a bunch, in advance!

Take out your battery and put it back. Mine does this periodically and this always solves the problem.

Incorrect indicator of an unread message


What is the problem? If you "mark all as read" then that's exactly what it's doing. It marks all messages as having been read, which means that there are no unread messages --- which is exactly what it's showing.

No I didn't, still the message indicater shows message in INBOX, but INBOX is empty?????????????


The indicator takes into account of other mail folders. For example if you have unread deleted items, unread draft items, RSS feeds, etc. then also message indicator will not show empty.

My phone does not have any problems, I was just wondering if you could tell me how to remove the envelope from the screen, Thank you


This means you have a text message, look for something that says "messages" and go in and read them all. After you read them or delete them the envelope will go away, if you have problems ask someone to help you find your text messages in your phone.

Incorrect message - new e-mail


Click "Inbox" and then click "Unread" on the menu, just below the text "Inbox" and above the buttons "Delete", "Spam", "Mark" etc... You'll be able to view all the Unread message in your inbox.

Good luck.

Receiving Odd text message


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.
