    Stuck notification icon

    So a couple of days ago I noticed I had a false "1 New Voicemail" icon on my notifications & status bar on my Droid Bionic. I can't delete or clear the msg. I tried to force it out by creating vm msgs & deleting them. I uninstalled & re-installed my visual voice mail & my stock voice mail, powered off the phone & did a battery pull. I even uninstalled my Handcent app. No luck. I would hate to have to do a soft reset & would appreciate any other suggestions that anyone may have. Thank you. :-)

    In the manage apps menu, try force closing voicemail and clearing data for it. Maybe that will help.

    I tried that also. It didn't do anything. That's when I decided to uninstall. Thanks though. :-)

    Are you rooted? If so rom toolbox (pro for sure, free maybe) has a restart status bar utility that kills the process, soft boots the status bar only if you will.

    You have nothing to lose but the chains that bind you. It's 1 download, a little file shifting, a point, a deep breath, a click, and about 2.5 minutes.

    @94lt1...it took a few minutes but VZW was able to flush it out. Thank you. @altdspeed...I've always been afraid of bricking my phone but I may consider rooting again. Thank you, everyone, for weighing in!

    I found on another forum (Verizon's) that you can go to the 'manage apps' and then selecting 'all apps', then find 'phone' and touch it to open the app manager to the screen where you can 'clear cache'. This does not do anything to your contacts and does release the notification icon at the top of your phone screen. It works and is easy - its what the Verizon folks do when they access your phone.

    I tried that also but the cache button was not "highlighted" so nothing would happen when I pressed to clear it. The Verizon rep was surprised that procedure didn't work.
