Voicemail icon won't go away...
So the voicemail icon in my notification bar won't go away even though I've deleted all the voicemails in my inbox. I've restarted the phone, pulled the battery. There's no clear icon in the notification bar, or when there is it doesn't clear the icon. I use google voice if it makes any difference.
Solution to new voicemail notification problem
Okay...if you haven't figured this out already: you have to dial *73 to cancel the call forwarding to Google voice you initially setup by dialing *71 followed by your cell number (but don't do his now!). After you do that, you can access your VZW voicemail normally by dialing *86.
