    Open your "Messages" folder. They should be in there.

    I'm not sure what OS the 7100 has on it but they could be emails that have been "saved" before being read. I do that all the time on accident when trying to "Mark Opened" it scrolls down on me and I end up "Saving" instead.

    If you have a saved folder, look in there.

    Good luck...

    My BB 7100t has 4.1.0.377 on it. I used it for a week while trying to revive, and eventually having to replace, my Pearl.

    LOL KalebsDad. I have a habit of doing the same thing with my Pearls. I once accidentally saved over 20 messages.

    KalebsDad78 has an excellent suggestion, many times we overlook messages in the Saved folder. In addition to his suggestion, do this: Open your phone dialing screen (on your 7100, press the green phone button). Click the trackwheel to get the menu; choose Options; choose "Call Logging", then select "All Calls". Make sure the change is saved. Then from your home screen, choose "Messages", then open the menu by clicking the trackwheel, and choose "Mark Prior Opened". That oughta did it!! Note: If you have a lot of messages saved, it might take a minute or two to mark 'em all read.

    Yup, I have to go through about once a week and clear out my saved folder of messages I had no intent of saving to begin with :-).


    Cowboy, did you resolve your issue?

    I do not have email access on my BB, so I dont have an email icon. Sorry, I should have mentioned that from the beginning. I deleted everything out of all of my messages files. I followed Mark Stone's advice, made it to "mark prior opened" and that was not an option in the list. I'm still stuck with the number hanging there. I really appreciate all the help!

    "Mark Prior Opened" is not an option? Hmmm..... Maybe since the folder was emptied, the choice does not appear.

    Try this: (You may have already tried, so forgive me if it's redundant --) Go to Messages, click the trackwheel to open the menu, then choose "View Folder". Look in each of those folders, see if the 53 messages are in one of those.

    Sorry, I guess that the 7100i is more limited than I thought.

    I'm not sure but since I don't see it mentioned in the thread I guess I ought to ask, have you tried a battery pull?
