Default Voicemail Icon

Guys - how can I get a Voicemail Icon on my HTC Hero (EU version) home screen?

Like this (I know this is the Sprint version):

You could save voicemail number as a contact with that icon image (or another of your choice) on phone and then add shortcut - person - voicemail (as contact) - and then choose on what to do when you press icon (next screen once you click on voicemail in contact list) dial number and should work fine - and look the same.

There's probably an easier way but I cant find it I'm afraid.

Cool Nighthaunt...How do we change icon images?

You could try one of these: voicemail | All | By date, Androlib, Android Applications and Games

If you put a shortcut to voicemail as a person (contact on the phone) then the icon (shortcut image) will be the contact photo for that person - so create voicemail as a contact and load onto sd card an image you want as icon and use that as the contact picture for voicemail.

Then when you add the shortcut to person - voicemail on home screen it will use that image as the icon.
