    Who has the most unread items on their phone be it either Mail, SMS, App Store updates or Facebook mail? I have a paltry 9.

    Anyone have over 1000?

    Only thing possible would probably be the SMS app.

    Mail stops at 200, and i believe you can only have 129 Apps on your phone at once.

    Mail can have multiple accounts which would allow it to go over 200 and if I recall even if there aren't unread items on the iPhone if the IMAP mailbox contains unread items then they are still displayed.

    I just went through and marked everything as read. It was neat to watch the counter go up and down as I made changes on the server. That's only from the two accounts that I sync to mail.app on my computer, though. I have to get my work email through the browser so the number could have been higher.

    I don't cheat. You do. Therefore, I still declare victory until a legitimate competitor shows him or herself.

    Haha. I know that Apple tests the iPhone Mail into the 10k range. How many emails did you actually have loaded on your iPhone?

    Anyone have a decent amount of SMS?

    GEEZUZ. I thought that was real for a second.
    Lol. Well, I don't know how far I can get mine.
    I probably have 10k mail, which I can easily mark all as unread.

    Ha ha! Nice.

    I'm super anal about unread messages for some reason. I just hate seeing that indicator.

    I've had -1 on an App also. The SMS app. Darn iRealSMS f***ing everything up... Had to delete ALL of my SMSs... That'll teach me to want a decent SMS app that has the capabilities the stock SMS app should've come with in the first place. :rolleyes:

    I go nuts having the red indicator on any of my Apps. I love the feature itself, letting you know something's new, and it's quite effective at getting e to read my email or update Apps. It just bugs me wen it's on my beautiful home screen...

    Unread RSS feeds in NetNewsWire present all kinds of opportunities, particularly if you have a couple of the AppShopper feeds included. Not sure the limit. Maybe I'll let it ride for a few days and see if there is one.

    I marked all of my emails as unread in mail.app on my computer. Then they became unread on the phone. Since you have to manually download them in groups of 50, I just wanted to get over 1000, but my inbox itself had about 8500 unread messages and that was displayed on the badge on the mac.

    I wonder... if you had so many unread emails, like in the 100m range, would it push the app icon next to Mail over? Lol

    Well, I don't exactly have to fetch 650 old emails on a daily basis. That was a one time thing.

    I've seen a picture of Mail for Leopard being tested with over 100k unread items on the badge (they found a bug with the text rendering).

    I think the -1 from Facebook deserves some sort of prize!

    Its because he has BackGrounder running from Cydia. It happens to me to sometimes. I hate having un-read mail in my mail accounts, so I read through them!
