    New user - 2 problems

    Hey everyone, first time poster and owner of a brand new Droid. I have two quick questions:

    1. I installed a Widget (the 3x1 icons thing) but decided I didn't need it. I deleted it, and now there's a space where it used to be on my homepage that says "Problem Loading Widget." I'm assuming that's because I didn't "unset" the Widget before I uninstalled. What can I do to fix this?

    2. I have a new voicemail. How can I get the voicemail to go away in my notification bar?

    Thanks, I'm sure I'll have many more questions in the future!

    1. Press and hold where the widget was until it "thumps" then drag it to the app drawer, it becomes a trash can, and you're done.

    2. Pull down your notification bar and press clear, done.

    Got rid of the Widget, thanks!

    I had already tried the clear button, and it erased another notification I had (email), but the Voicemail is still showing up, and there's no clear button visible. Turned the phone off and back on, but no luck. I also tried actually tapping the notification, and it just dialed my voicemail (fine, I needed to listen anyway), but even after that it didn't go away.

    did you erase or save the voicemail? usually you have to do something otherwise it stays in your "new" folder kinda like an email

    is it the little black and red "x" thing? if so, that is your missed call notification, just open your phone app. if it is the little scroll looking thing, refer to post #7
