    How To Get Rid Of Voicemail Notification?

    My nephew is finding that even after he's cleared his new voicemails he is still getting the little icon notifying him that he was a v-mail in his notifications bar. There seems to be no way for him to clear this. He's deleted all his v-mails, then had someone call him and leave a message and then deleted that one. Nothing seems to make the icon go away from the notification bar. He brought it to a Verizon store and the tech guys couldn't help him. They suggested a hard reboot might be necessary. He doesn't want to do that for obvious reasons as he'd lose all his apps and email accts, etc.

    Anyone have any ideas what's going on or if there's a fix for this?

    Can he swipe the notification away or pull down the notification bar and dismiss it there?

    ~it's not just a phone~

    And how long after is it still there? Because I have times where it took a a couple or few minites to clear the system and re-ping it.

    Update:

    The problem was not the phone, it was a problem with Verizon's voice mail. They reset it for him, he changed his password and now all is well. They sent him a test v-mail, the icon showed up on the screen, he listened to it and hit "7" (erase) and the icon went away, as it should have all along. It was never a problem with the phone...the phone previously had just been showing the signal it was getting from Verizon.

    in the past i have used this method..

    Verizon wanted me to do a factory reset. Instead, I switched my voicemail service back to "my carrier" and dialed *73 to restore me to Verizon voicemail. I had my husband call and leave me a message. When I went to check my vm, all my ghost notifier messages were there! (When I had called previously, it said there were no messages.)

    I listened to and deleted all my messages, and the notification icon disappeared after a minute or so.

    Changed voicemail back to Google voice and did the *71 thing. Everything's back to normal now.
