    Unfortunately, I don't think there's another method.
    I also hate having it there.
    What I do is, go into voicemail, and move the slider all the way to the end.
    If I'm very clever, and I'm more than clever, I'm brilliant! I might just save the World, or rip it apart!

    With no signal, how are you getting voicemails in the first place?

    I get voicemail because they cannot reach me. There is probably just enough signal to send the annoying symbol through to my phone.

    That's true, sometimes I work in places with little, very little signal, and phone calls don't get through, but voicemail does for some reason.

    It doesn't need much signal to trigger the symbol, all voicemails are stored on the service provider servers.

    You should try Light Flow. I have it set up with my T-Mobile Visual Voicemail so that it will remove the notification without checking my voicemail. Can't guarantee you it will work the same on regular (non-visual) voiemail since I'd have to disable my visual VM to check that but you or someone else can try it. Can't remember if it's in the free version since I've had the paid version for years.

    Light Flow is £1.49. I don't really need its features so won't bother trying it but thanks anyway.
