Hey all, Just registered here. I am REALLY liking this Rom but there are a few things I don't like, mainly this dumb notification.

Say I receive a text from a friend, Paul. It will pop up and the Notification bar will also show message from Paul. Theres this second stupid notification that does NOTHING. It says, you have a new message. If you click the notification it doesn't bring you anywhere or go away, you have to open your notifications and clear them.

How can I get rid of this? Turning off the messaging notifications got rid of the "New message from Paul" but not this stupid Notification.

Motorola Droid 1, most recently released w/ the Transformer theme.

I'm not quite sure what problem you're having with the stock messaging notifications. The status bar notification usually goes away when I either answer the popup, or just close the popup. I've never considered it an issue, personally.

It doesn't go away after I reply to the message. I get two notifications the one from Paul and this one. This looks like a post card for the icon. The only way to get rid of it is to open my notifications and hit clear

Out of all the people on this forum not one person knows how to get rid o this notification? Wow. I have ADHD and it bugs the f**k out of me every time my eyes shoot up to it thinking something important happened. I seriously hate this notification and it's a deal breaker >.>

Sounds like its NOT from the stock messaging app because that certainly doesn't pop up a post card notification. Get use a screen shot and we might be able to help.

Yes it happens to me too! From 2 month since i started using MIUI!
I guess it happens to everyone but they are not understanding what we mean!

What we mean guys is that after answering / replying to a sms one of the two notifications goes away but the other one remains!
It goes when we clear notifications and if we click it we go to stock sms app!

Screen shots:
Got a sms from alfa => 2 notifications
Read the sms and replied => still got 1 notification and wont go until i clear the notification or go to sms app!

Found a solution for you.

The Beautiful SMS widget sets up its own notifications when you create the widget on your home screen. The notification is IDENTICAL to the stock sms app, and points to the stock messaging app too. When you remove the widget, the notifications remain in place. Every time you receive a message, BeautifulSMS will notify you. You can fix it by creating the widget again, and disabling sms notifications in the widget's settings. Or just uninstall the app.

Other SMS widget apps may have the same or similar icons. lol.

SOLUTION: Check your widget's notification settings. (eg. BeautifulSMS, SMS Popup.)

This worked. Thanks.

Didn't realize the widgets automatically applied their settings without asking......

Sorry i didn't get it much!
I don't have any SMS widget!
SMS pop up option in stock sms is OFF!

What should i do?!? Disable "message notifications" in the settings of the stock app?!?
