    I am having the same problem.  I have spotty message notification (no sound or vibration) when I am in the lock screen.

    has anyone found a fix?


    even after a restore from itunes AND from icloud, the unread message still exist.


    ive tried deleting the last couple of days messages with that person followed by a hard reset as well


    today I updated to iOS 6.0.1 but my message icon still says i have an unread message and everyitme i open the messages app, it opens to that "unread" message


    PLEASEEEEE post a fix if youve found one. a fix that doesnt involve deleting the message!

    Yeah, I have this exact same issue. Really annoying. Updating iOS has not made a difference and it really is bugging me now.

    My wife has the same problem with her iPhone 4 after upgrading to iOS 6. The 6.0.1 update didn't help. There is a message that was sent around the time she updated to iOS 6 and even after deleting the message, a badge always shows up on Message and when you click on message it goes to a blank text message,

    Today , I experienced the same problem. previously I had installed to my 4s without any problem but today after installation to my wifes 4 , some of the messages were blank and also unread message counter problem exists. I think ,  As stated above these are the messages which might received during installation or which were unread before upgrading to 6 . Look forward to have a solution cause I had important msgs which flew away

    Dear ladies and gentlemen, I finally managed to fix this bug! If you are still interested let me know so that I'll publish the solution (it's a fairly long, but not complex process).

    Today I'm having some different problem. Having Iphone4 just upgraded from Ios 5.1.1 to 6.1 when i get new mail to my phone unread round blue icon its not showing. Showing that i have read all the mails.

    anyone having same issue

  • thenthguy Level 1 (0 points)

    please publish the solution!  i've tried everything.  i read elsewhere that i need to just open the message that's unread and so i scrolled through 8 months of messages from my wife (and she texts A LOT) and it still wouldn't clear.  this is driving me bonkers.

  • AlfonsoMG Level 1 (0 points)

    I'm writing it down in my blog, please be patient

    One more thing, the device need to be... a word is enough to the wise!

  • AlfonsoMG Level 1 (0 points)

    Here is the solution! English version at the bottom page

  • Perriard Level 1 (0 points)

    I had this issue too and it was driving me nuts. The message count kept going up and the blue dots kept reappearing after reading the messages.


    I did a hard reset and then deleted a lot of my old message threads. Went through the unread messages again, and voila! No more 'unread' messages.

  • thenthguy Level 1 (0 points)

    I did what AlfonsoMG did and it worked perfectly.  It does require iFile (which I already had, but can be an expense).  It also required a lot of patience because I was scrolling through 15 months worth of texts to get to the corrupted text message, in order to delete it.  Thanks AlfonsoMG!!
