    I have a voicemail notification that I can't seem to clear. I use google voicemail so I'm clueless on how it happened. If I call my voicemail it says I have no new messages. The Google voice app also says I don't have any new messages. I'm running the latest aokp and use nova launcher. Does anyone know how to clear this thing?

    Try changing your voice mail to Verizon call it make sure there are no old messages on there and then change it back to Google voice

    it sat like that for literally 9 minutes and i rebooted. no change. if it matters, it's making a notification sound while booting up, that's also not normal. it's like it's notifying me of a voicemail i dont have when i reboot. this is driving my nuts.

    did another battery pull with no joy. i looked and it is still set to "google voice". anyone think un/reinstalling google voice would matter?

    The message is in the VZW mailbox. Dial *73 and hit send. This will disable the call forwarding for Google voice. Now dial *86. Enter your PIN and I bet the message is there. Delete it. Now dial *71 and your Google voice number. Hit send and you are back to Google voice. The voice mail setting in the settings menu doesn't do anything. You have to disable the call forwarding on VZWs network to get to the normal voice mail.

    Sometimes a call slips by the forwarding. It happens on occasion.

    Glad I could help.

    It was a big source of frustration for me too. Oh. One other helpful tidbit .. I have found that if the message is stuck in VZW's mailbox, you can wipe your phone and flash new ROM's till your blue in the face, heck you can even change devices, but when your phone reactivates, VZW is going to tell you that you have a message ... Carrier VM is linked to the phone number, not the device.

    That being said ... Go flash JB ... You're going to love it!

    JB allows you to do this nice trick in notifications area - press and hold on a notification, press About app, details about "Phone" pop up - just stop the app and clear its data, you shouldn't be getting any more unread voice mail notification unless there is an actual voice mail waiting..

    Edit: worked only until reboot, sorry

    Edit: what seems to have helped for good is chatting with a carrier rep. (T-Mobile in my case) and asking him to activate my voicemail, which I called then, set my PIN, and asked him to deactivate it again. No notification, even after a reboot. Of course if you actually use your voicemail, simply call it and leave a message or try having it deactivated and activated again instead! Whatever works better for you.

    I have a Samsung Galaxy Nexus through Sprint (and am also not tech saavy at all, so instructions have to be pretty basic :/)

    I'm having the same issue - vmail notification, but no message when I call . Just tried this and I got a message saying the code I called isn't valid. Were those instructions specific to Verizon phones? Any other ideas? It's driving me bananas am I'm trying to avoid wiping!
