    Is there a way to mark text messages as read right from the notification bar? I hate when someone responds with something short enough that I can read it right from the bar. Then the only way that it will not show up as a new message on the message icon or be bold in the list, I have to click on it, open the message app, and then back out of it. Not that big of a PITA just kind of annoying when I already know the full message.

    I agree... PITA. But it is what it is.

    I use Handcent which pops up a box on the screen thats really easy to exit out of, I think the stock Texting App has the same option.
