Stock messaging app still shows number even when turned off


Jan 6, 2011
So I use handcent, I go to the stock messaging app and turn off auto retrieve and notifications...but when I get a text the stock messaging app still has a 1 over won't go away till you open the app and look at the new message. It isn't a big deal just very annoying. Am i doing something wrong? I'm on Evo 1.1.14 official release with stock kernel.
