Default messages icon

I just upgraded my OS this weekend to the new version stickied, and i have another newb question ;)

Previous to upgrading, all of my different messages, email, sms, etc. would show notices in their respective icons, now all of my messages are going to their respective icons as well as the messages icon. So now at the top of my screen i get the SMS or Email of Facebook notification and another for the Messages, making me check both places to clear the notices.

How do i change it back so i don't have to check the messages icon and the email icon or whichever, to clear the notices?

You can also combine your Messages/SMS inbox by going into the options of your messages folder.
Inside the general options
8830 -> 8330 -> 9550 -> 9650
Just think about how far BlackBerries have come from then till now... And what else is coming.
