New message notification won't go away
Super Annoyed. Long-time android user. Love my S3 but today, man...
Ok, so I'm using Handcent. Received a text and now I can't clear that notification from the notifications bar. I clear it by swiping of going into it and it still comes back. If I actually click into it, it simply takes me to a blank message composition screen.
Tried a bunch of stuff. UNINSTALLED handcent. Reactivated stock messaging app. SAME problem, but now with the stock messaging app icon.
Cleared data, tried a bunch of googled suggestions - nothing. nada. VERY persistant. Disabled the stock messaging app and obviously that works, but that leaves me with no messaging capabilities.
Turn on messaging app again, and you guessed it - BACK IN THE NOTIFICATIONS BAR !!! ARH
Help me before my anger gets the best of me and my phone.
