Question about LG enV VX9900 Cellular Phone

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.

How to delete multiple text messages on a Samsung Intensity


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.

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.
