How Do I Mark Text Messages as Read? I'm using Windows Mobile 6.1 on my Moto Q 9C. I'm just using the native text messaging reader software. When I get a new text message, I go in and read it and then I go back to my desktop and it still says I have an unread message. I have to go read it a second time before it recognizes that I read it and clears the unread messages counter. Is there a way to mark the message as read the first time I read it? I don't see anything appropriate on the menus.
