How to clear missed call notifications on Samsung Galaxy with TouchWiz

I've recently updated firmware od my Galaxy S Duos, and after that it would show me unread messages and missed call count even when there is none. You know this little orange counter in the quick tabs at the bottom of the screen? It's been really annoying and I even considered a full factory reset. Fortunately there are a couple of easier solutions:

  • Go to Settings→ Applications manager and select "All" tab . Scroll down and click on "BadgeProvider" and clear data. After reboot everything is back to normal. (source)
  • Alternatively you can try with: Settings → Developer options, where you should uncheck "Do not keep activities"
