    hello people,

    i am having a slight problem that just started happening this morning when i turned my phone on..I saw that i had a text and the little smile voice bubble appeared like normal in the notification panel but also an envelope (NOT email) also appeared..i clicked the smile icon to bring me straight to the text and that went away like it was supposed to, but the envelope would not go away..anyone know how to get this "unread message" icon to stop coming up and just have the smile bubble come up again...
    thanks

    Ya, that's unusual. The envelope icon should only be coming up for e-mails. I've never seen that for text messages. What happens if you click on the notification?

    did this just happen once, or multiple times?

    Are you running two messaging apps (i.e. Hancent or ChompSMS along with the default app)

    With handcent, you can set the notification icon to be an envelope (not the same one as emails).

    True, but the default notification icon is the speech bubble, and he said it just started happening randomly. I don't think Handcent would chance the icon to one of the envelopes and turn on notifications at the same time, but who knows.
