    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.

    I had the same problem on my Ozone. I just got into the habit of scrolling up through the threaded text conversation when it's over. This usually takes care of it for me.

    I Figured it Out

    I was reading the messages and just hitting the Home key to go back to my desktop. If I use the Back-Arrow key, it marks the messages as read. D'OH!
