Help Text message notifications in the notifaction toolbar dont go away until I lock phone

It's kind of there a setting or something I can do to remedy this?

I am just using the default messages app.

ok now they arent going away until i manually pull the bar down and clear my notifactions. annoying. is there any way to make the new message notification go away when you read your new texts?

its funny you say this. Mine just did that not even 5 minutes ago. I hate how your text message sound keeps playing too until you actually go in and read the text.

Have y'all played with the notification settings? There's a section in the message settings called "Received messages" where you can tell it whether or not to place a notification in the status bar about new texts and such.

anyone have any ideas? cmon :(

When I have had this happen I have to open the message and touch the text input box and it clears the notification. Dont have to type anything, just touch the text box to place the cursor there and then close.

I have not once never ever had the notification sound play more than once. Thats just wierd, and very cool if I could get mine to do that with the stock messaging app....

Its an app was doing it for me today also had to uninstall beautiful widget pack 2 and it stopped

DAMN you were right! Thanks a lot for posting that! That was bugging the hell out of me! I uninstalled Beautiful Widgets 2 and it works correctly as soon as I uninstalled it. I never even used that app anyhow. I don't even really like Beautiful Widgets 1 either...
