    Just a quick clarification. There are two different types of "notifications" you'll see in the notification tray. The first type will have the heading "Ongoing", while the second will be "Notifications". Ongoing is for apps or processes that are running, currently. Notifications is for things that have already happened, and you're being alerted. The clear button will only remove things under "Notifications". Are you saying that the clear button does not remove those types of notifications? And if not, what happens? Is the clear button not available (grayed out?), or does it just not do anything? Is this for all notifications?

    Sure thing, it affects the notifications that have already happened

    Hmm, ok, that's interesting. Are you sure there isn't a bigger problem, such as an issue with screen sensitivity in the top corner?

    I too am having the same issue with the clear button in the notifications area and have not been able to resolve the problem. Had been working fine and now just today it stops working. Anyone found a fix yet?

    I am having problems with the touch screen on my HTC EVO 4G, I can not use the clear button in the notification screen in the portrait mode but in Landscape mode I can. I do not think its the screen I have reset my phone back to factory settings and deleted my SD card and it has fixed the problem for a little while but it is now back. Has there been a fix for this or do I need to get a new phone for sure?

    no fix that i'm aware of. you might want to take it in and see what they can do. they will most likely do a reset anyways.

    I started having the exact same problem yesterday. I've restarted, shut down, done everything I can think of and nothing works.
