    Not able to delete a text message on Android Samsung Galaxy Portal.

    I received a text message from my friend but it is not getting deleted. The smiley face on the top left corner is always there that makes it difficult for me to know if new message has been received. How can I get it deleted?

    This is a usual problem that happens with all users. You could try switching off your phone and switching it on again. This could solve the issue. This issue could also happen when the memory space is nearing exhaustion. If the problem is still not solved, then go into the texts where it lists all the messages you have received from contacts. There you could press and then hold on the message thread to bring up a menu and then just hit the delete button. Unread messages are usually marked as grey and the read messages are turned black. Just look for any unread messages in order to clear the notification. You could also tap the notification bar and drag it down. You could then see the notification that tells you of an unread message.

    If the problem is still not solved then you can do the following
    >>
    Touch the LAUNCHER (MENU) icon.>> Tap on the MESSAGING icon.
    >> In messaging press and HOLD on the message which you wish to delete, to bring up a popup.
    >> In this POP UP tap on the DELETE button.
