To protect your GSN get a rubber bumper or case. A screenprotector and hardcase will not protect your GSN from a drop. My screen has a vertical crack from a 1 metre drop.

I am afraid you will have to find that specific unread Message and Delete it.And that will be a problem if you have too many of them.

Google Calendar Trick
This is a Google Calendar Trick I found on the note.

If you need to move an appointment around in the day view, long press on the title of the appointment and you will be able to move it to another timeslot.

If you want to extend the appointment, then long press on the appointment box (blue box) in the day view and the size of the box will become adjustable.

This is much handier than having to open and edit the appointment to change the time or duration of the meeting.
