Help! This is becoming very frustrating. I restarted my phone, and now I get notifications for text messages I've already read that are still on my phone. My phone vibrates as if I'm getting a new text, and I can't do much until it's done because it'll show and notify I have hundreds of text! 
Anyone know how I can fix this? Thank you.

Mine does the same S21 ultra. After the scheduled restarts I have tons of new messages but I've already read them, yes if anyone can help that would be nice.

did this happen after the recent update or something? 

which carrier? and what's your current software version? about phone > software info > last 4 characters of build number

submit an error report after replicating the issue

Samsung Members app > Get help > Send feedback > Error reports

Anyone know how to fix this? It's been happening to me for about a month as well. I have the S10+ and it's driving me nuts. I submitted an error report this morning finally when I woke up to 120 'new' messages, but I thought I'd also check to see if anyone know l knew of a way for me to fix it?

This has been happening to me for about a month or two now! Super annoying.  All the messages seem to come in right after my scheduled restart which is at like 3 or 4 am.  Anyone know a fix for this?
