How to reset new message count on Touch Flo
 
On the "Text" icon that runs along the bottom of Touch Flo 3d it puts a number. This is the number of unread messages you have. Well, somehow I got that count stuck at 1. Most likely I deleted the new message before Touch Flo figured out that it was read.

Does anyone know of a way to reset that count? Currently it has a big "1" on the icon and is Really annoying.

Is it definitely on the SMS icon or is it possibly on the Email icon? If it's on the SMS icon for sure than I don't know if any of the following applies, but maybe...

If it's on the email icon, you might try going to your inbox view, then to folder selections, and look for a 'Tips & Tricks' email under 'Outlook Email' -- even if you don't use activesync mail it may be there...Also you may wish to try the file floating around here somewhere to supposedly fix the unread count (found it, see this thread), but I don't know what situations it will and won't work for -- or if it ever applies to SMS. Good luck.

Thanks for the info, it did sound really hopeful. However the program did not work. In fact it caused the phone to go into an unrecoverable reboot loop.
:violent2:
I assume after I do a hard reset the stupid message count will be correct. But this is a worst case scenario. :( :( :(

Yikes! That is...a most unfortunate result. (and a perfect example of why that animation of the happy face jumping into a microwave exists...) That thread did look a bit moldy, but it didn't look unsafe for consumption. I am sorry to hear you may be stuck doing a hard reset, although you can always chalk it up to more experience.

Did you happen to check for the rogue 'Welcome/Tips & Tricks' message before trying that executable in that thread?

Go to "Inbox" (left bottom button)....Click Inbox upper left....Open Outlook E-mail....you probably have 1 email in the inbox under here...delete it...read it....etc.....problem fixed.....

Edit - found this on XDA check it out http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...=message+count

I'm having the same issue! I messaged myself by accident and I now have the blue number 1 by my text icon. Surely there has to be a way to reset this.

Even if from there I go to classic winmo sms inbox I still have a (1) next to the word "inbox" yet I have nothing in there to read.

There must be a way to reset this in windows. I haven't tried deleting every single text on my phone yet but, I don't think that's going to solve the problem in my opinion.

This fixed a wrong message count for sms messages on my Verizon Touch Pro2.

Google CERegEditor then download and install on your computer (not phone). Connect your phone to computer (need sync capability).

Launch CERegEditor then connect to your phone (top left menu).

You need to edit this registry key:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\System\State\Messages\sms\Unread

Double-click on COUNT and change the number to 0 (zero). You should see the change immediately on your phone -- you don't have to do a save. If it works then save.

The answer is similar for e-mail. Just look around in the same area for similar keys.

Thanks for this post (I realize it's old). It worked for me, now each time I get an SMS, I have the same problem. Any idea how to cure it permanently?
