    It comes up when sending text messages. Not in the messaging widget, but when you actually go into your text messages, and i think its some, not all. After the message is sent, on the right side of the screen/message, there is this red exclamation point.

    Anyone know what this is or means????:D

    Yup, It means it wasn't sent. Probably just a false notification. Are you using the default messaging app?

    EDIT: Cool, glad u figured it out.

    A little late, but for anyone still searching on posts like this, like im doing right now, the little red triangle with the exclamation point in it (!Triangle) isnt the priority level, at least on my evo 4g it isnt, it means that there are undeliverd messages,

    Go into Messages >> Press Menu >> And if you have the Red Triangle, There should be an Icon (an Envelope with a !Triangle) thats labeled "Undelivered Messages" Open it >> Long Press the Message >> You can either try resending the Message or you can Simply Delete It.

    The !Triange should dissapear

    The red triangle with the exclamation mark is showing up because somewhere in the string of texts you've been sending to this person, you did not complete sending one. Go back through the string until you find the exclamation mark, finish and send the text or if it's irrelevant by now, erase it. The triangle will go away. :)
