    ok since yesterday morning i have had a voicemail indicator on my phone,

    i have spend 1 hour with verizon tech on the phone, 1 hour with motorola on the phone, and 30 minutes in store with verizon to no avail

    the voicemail icon is there and i have 0 voicemails. on verizons server it says i have none, and for god knows what reason the droid doesnt have a clear voicemail indicator option

    i have tried everything, even completely removing voicemail from my account and putting it back on, no help

    any ideas before i got get my phone flashed back to stage 1 tomorrow

    Did you try dragging down the notification bar and clearing it? Alternatively, while on home screen, hit menu > notifications then clear all. Let us know if it works or not...

    leave yourself a couple of messages. Let them sit there for a couple minutes then listen to them.

    No a guaranteed fix but it may work.

    Good luck

    +1. This usually does the trick. I have had this problem with Verizon several times on assorted phones, both Smart Phones and simple clamshells.

    The problem is *NOT* the phone. It is getting a notification from Verizon that you have a voicemail and is reporting it accordingly. (Even if the Droid allowed you to clear it manually it would just reappear with the next notification, which would be annoying as well).
