Sms notification number doesn’t go away

Are you also experiencing this problem where the sms notification number doesn’t go away, even though you do not have any unread messages left?

I had this on the Samsung Galaxy S3, and solved it this way:

  1. Go to Settings
  2. Go to application manager
  3. Go to theĀ All tab
  4. Search for BadgeProvider
  5. Choose Clear data
  6. Restart your phone

It should be fixed!
