    This worked for me, but I had to add one more step to actually get the icon to go away: Call the phone and leave a voice mail. Call your voice mail by swipe-dropping the vm indicator and clicking on the voice mail notification. Listen to your message all the way through. Delete the message after it has completed. Hang up... The indicator should go away.

    I had the same issue just last night and today for the first time. I called Verizon tech support twice. The first time they tried to fix it unsuccessfully using the voice waiting indicator, the second time it worked after they called my phone, reset and left a message! It had nothing to do with google voice, visual voice mail, etc, which I don't have, just stock Droid X. I posted about this earlier today.

    I don't know if this will help, but I found out that if you don't delete or store the voicemail, the icon won't go away. I went to my voicemail and deleted the last one and the icon went away. Hope it helps dancedroid

    thnx for the help. i dialed *86, instead of using a shortcut, and turned on the voicemail notific while it was still on. finally

    Just to add from my PC experience, weather bug used to be full of tracking cookies and had a bad experience getting it off of my phone. Had to run tons of removal tools and that got rid of it. So when I saw it on the market for the phone, I stayed far away from it.....

    I had this problem and solved it with the steps below after hours of trying. What finally worked was waiting several minutes between steps:

    Call your voicemail. You will hear the message "You have no new messages." If it says anything about you having SKIPPED messages, then you will want to delete those first. Anyway, you will hear "You have no new messages" upon checking your voicemail, then you will want to press option 4. Then you will press option 1 to turn off "Message Waiting Indicator" (don't hang up yet)... wait a few seconds and then press option 1 again to turn on "Message Waiting Indicator". You can hang up after this. This more or less confuses the phone and resets the messages.. your phone must have gotten stuck.
