    please can anybody out there help me. I have been sent a text message from a friend but it won't delete. The little smiley face in the top left corner is continually there which makes it difficult for me to know if i have received a new message. Any suggestions will be really helpful.

    Go into your texts where it lists the messages you have from different contacts, once there you can press and hold on the message "thread" to bring up a menu, just hit the delete button.

    unread messages are marked as grey (on the black theme) and read messages turn black. Just look for any unread messages to clear the notification. Or tap the notification bar and drag it down, you should see the notification that's telling you of an unread message. Hope this helps
