Try a battery pull to see if the sms indicator goes away.

Do you have your SMS and Email messages separated? Go into Messages -> Options -> General Options. What is SMS and Email Inboxes set to? And what theme are you using?

Have you tried unhiding all of the icons to see if there is an SMS icon?

Try changing it to Separate and see if you get a new icon for SMS messages....

Glad you found the message, but not sure I follow that last question. Do you mean you want the sms messages to show in the Messages folder where your regular email is found?

Yes, change the SMS & Email Inboxes to 'Combined'.

Combined should give you what you want, everything in the Messages folder on your bb.
