My android shows a number of unread texts in my messenger.

Customer Question

My android shows a number of unread texts in my messenger. When I click the icon there is no new message. The unread texts will stay for about a month then disappear. All the while I can still send and receive messages.

Contacted customer care regarding this inquiry. I understood a response would be emailed to me, which I never received. I didn't know I had to check here for dialog. Yes, I'm still having the issue and customer care should have reopened this since nothing was done.

Well what's going on is that you have your messages set for monthly instead of 24 hrs or less. So you can go into settings and change that.

Good info, have not tried this. Where in settings can I change this? Can you specify the path

When can I expect a reply to my follow up question? Thank you.

I found 24 hour format under date and time and selected it. The counter showed 6 text messages unread but when I opened text messenger, I still could not see them. So I powered down, and when it came back on, the 6 messages were gone. What's up?
Expert:  Terry Parker replied 1 year ago.
Okay open up text messages and then hit the menu button. Menu pop up box should come up and from there it should give you some options to choose from. I believe you can set up how you want to set up messaging. Let me know if this works.
