Default HTC Sensation voicemail icon stuck

Kind of a dumb issue, but I can't get the voicemail icon to go away! After receiving my first voicemail on the phone, I decided to install visual voicemail instead of calling voicemail... Now the icon won't go away. I've tried leaving myself new voicemails and then calling to delete all voicemail over the phone... No luck. Also installed the 2.3.4 update which included restarting the phone... No luck. I have now deleted all voicemail in both the visual voicemail app and via dialing voicemail. And, just in case, I've restarted the phone many time... That icon just won't go away. BAH! Any ideas?

I have the same issue on my phone. I assumed it was a google voice bug.

This works on a G2 so it should work for you:
If you are using Google Voice switch to the carrier voicemail (settings - call settings - voicemail service) then call your phone from another phone and leave a message, listen to your message, then delete your message, your icon should go away. Then change back to Google Voice.

Directly from my HTC Sensation, I dialed *67xxxxxxxxxx (where the x's are your OWN number, with no spaces) - this allows you to call yourself as a blocked number hence requiring your voicelessness password - you can choose to send a new voice-mail and enter your number again (without the*67). You'll get the "new" voice-mail notification; after listening to and deleting the voice-mail, the icon should disappear. I did all this with Google Voice de-activated. Now, with Visual Voice activated, I only get that icon. This method works good if you don't have another phone to call yourself from.

Thank you lucas.childers for that simple explanation. That little voicemail notification was bugging me bad! LOL
