    I thought you had a random photo of a dude holding your phone.

    You know you are an outkast when you have negative text messages!

    Very weird

    there is a fix for that somewhere in cydia, i had the same issue after installing ireal...
    idk wut its called but the description says something like fix for sms app that always shows 1 txt msg.
    says nothing about negative txts but still works...

    That makes sense bc I recently installed and sbsequently removed iRealSMS (didn't know it costs iRealMoney). I'll find that fix. LOL and ya sry abt the pic I accidentally picked an image out of the photo folder and not the screenshots.

    It is a bug with iRealSMS - which was the main reason I removed it and now use BiteSMS (also not free but worth it)

    Had the same issue, after uninstalling iReal it cleared up. Was crazy, got up to -50 some messages. Just didn't like seeing the negeative numbers, made me feel weird.

    hey download "Unread SMS Fixer" from cydia, i havent tried, but it could be a "corrupt" database thats causing the problem, might as well give it a shot!

    I believe that fixes a different bug and does not work with the problems caused by iReal.

    It does. The first time it happened to me, I'm not sure if I jailbroke my phone then, much less used iRealSMS, but I just deleted all my texts and that fixed the problem; I really didn't want to, though, but the negative text annoyed me. Luckily I found that Unread SMS Fixer app before it happened again. When it did, I installed the app and that fixed it.

    So if that really is iReal causing that bug, it's really not a big deal, because it takes a whole minute to fix, and it's only happened to me three times in the 8 months I've had my iPhone. No other SMS app can compare to iReal, especially when 2.0.8.4, or whatever version it is, comes out.
    Does this rag smell like chloroform to you?

    Its just a ploy by Apple to get you to text more and help your carier.

    Restarting the phone (full power down) seems to have fixed the problem. I figured that was worth a try before heading to that fix in Cydia.
