    All of the sudden i have a new voicemail icon in the notification bar.

    press the notification to call my voicemail and it says no new messages, but the icon still is there and says 1 new VM. There is no clear all option.

    also, i use google voice and i never got a notification from google voice of a new voicemeail, just the default icon for a new VM

    is there anyway to bypass GV and go straight the verizon default voicemail and delete it there, the only thing i can think of is that it is for some reason not getting passed to GV

    thank you for any help

    I had the same exact issue. I went through I deleted each third party application one by one and determined it was the weather bug app giving me this problem. All was good then a few days later I would get once in a while, not like before though. The tech at verizon said he thought it was a bug that got into the phone and once that happens it wont go away.

    I personally think it was the weather bug because since my new phone, I have put all the third party apps back on except for weather bug and works great.

    Again, I did get a new phone because it was within the first 30 days. If it continues, you may want to disable visual voice and download a third party voice mail like Fusionphone. I had this 3rd party voice mail and it worked great.

    Ok the next thing I did was uninstall the visual voice mail update (you cant completely uninstall the program) then install the fusion phone which is a free third party app for voice mail and that kept me getting the annoying icon. Last step was to exchange the phone for a new one.

    If all those things dont work I would call verizon tech support and tell everything you did and have them put the notes i=under your account then go get a new phone. I did all those things and am now bug free

    Well anything within the first 30 days is best. Anything after that date I think will depend on best buy. If its outside the 30 days, I would call verizon tech support and maybe they will send you via the mail

    I had this when I first started Google Voice. You need to disable Google Voice, go into ur VZW voice mail and make sure u dont have any new VM's
