Unread messages count is wrong

    Having a weird problem where my phone constant displays 4 unread text messages.

    A bit of background... I've been using custom Villaim roms for a few months now, have settled on 10.3. I use Handcent for my messaging but the stock messages app shows the same if I turn its notifications on.

    When I first went down the custom route, I didn't import my MMS settings, so four people had sent me MMSes which weren't retrived and expirted. I recently added the correct settings, and my phone has tried to retrieve these four messages (which had subsequently expired)

    I have done a full wipe on my phone, which cleared the issue, obviously. However, when I reimported my messages (using Fresh Kitchen), it brought back the four phantom messages.

    I really really don't want to lose all my messages, but short of clearing my messages app data, is there another resolution to this problem?

    Hang on... What's the Fresh Kitchen? It was my understanding anything to do with Fresh was to do with the Sprint hero. But then you said you run VillainROM.... I guess you have a GSM hero, right?

    (Sorry if this seems off topic to your post; we're constantly redirecting Sprint users to their seperate forum you see)

    Welcome to the forum :)

    Nah, I use Fresh kitchen as just a GUI for the android SDK. I used it to back up the texts, screens and my custom dictionary every time I did a flash.

    It's a UK G2-Touch (debranded since rooting, of course)
