    My LG enlighten is doing the same thing. I've deleted every text i had. I've turned my phone on and off like 20 times. I've went to settings and cleared the data on the messenger app and widget and it goes away for 2 seconds then comes back. I've opened in and it comes up as a blank text. I've tried filling it out and sending it. Still there, WHAT DO I DO WITHOUT RESETTING MY PHONE!!!! ;'(

Hey that same thing happened to me. i think why it happened is if u delete a message before you look at it, so dont do that, and i went to setting and phone settings and deleted all the phone memory which got rid of it but it deleted some of my contacts that were saved to the phone memory. so like all the contacts you added after you got the phone. but yeah it gets rid of it

    I had this problem today and i fixed it without resetting anything on the phone. If you have your texts in conversation view, switch it to 'standard view'. go back into your text message folder, then scroll all the way to the bottom. Mine had a text that was from 'unknown' and said nothing. it wont let you delete it from there. you then have to go to delete and 'select all' and delete it that way. The icon will go away once the that unknown text is opened.

    Hope this solves your problem!

    if your messages are in conversation view switch them to standard view. scroll down to the bottom and read the blank text from unknown. the icon should then go away. to ensure it doesn't happen again. click delete all.

    hope this solves your problem. It worked for me today without having to reset anything.

My AT&T Xenon LG not receiving texts. A friend thought it would be a funny joke to send copy-and-paste of a lengthy website 50 times as a text. Now I am unable to receive texts; however, my friends...

Did you ever find a solution to this problem? The exact same thing happened to my friend two days ago. Someone sent them the same message repeatedly, and he can no longer receive any messages, other than multimedia.

Turn off and then power on your cellphone to refresh the phone system and be sure also that your phone memory is not full.

My lg xenon wont let me send an mms, i have unlimited txting!

Make sure you have some sort of data plan since picture messages are sent as text messages with attachments. These attachments must be sent over the data network. So make sure you have a data plan even if it is pay per use. If you do, contact AT&T technical support and have them check your Snooper provisioning especially your APN.
