    Can somebody please tell me how to get rid of the voice mail notifications without turning the phone off? It's very annoying. Maybe I'm too dumb, but after I listen the voice mail and delete it, the notification is still in the notification area. I don't see any setting or way to remove it. I have to restart the phone. Anybody has this problem? :confused:

    That works for downloaded applications or SMS but not for voice mail. Even if I listen the voice mail and delete it, the voice mail notification or pending voice mail is still there.

    good call...

    on past phones I only had to use that method when there was a communication error between the voicemail server and the phone

    THe above method or listening for the voicemails works on my evo.

    I wonder if there is some underlying issue causing this behavior on this evo

    Even after listening to the voice mail and deleting it the notifications don't go away. I went to settings and call. I find't see that option.

    It is only available when there is a new voicemail. If the notification is there and its greyed and you have tried a hard reset ,prl update and data profile update it still does it take your phone to a sprint repair center.

    I have a friend who's evo 4g constantly notifies him of new voicemail but of his own number. Apparently the phone thinks that his own number left a voicemail. I tried removing the notification option and do a hard reset but the voicemail continues to pop-up. By any chance has anyone else had this problem? By the way it's not rooted.

    what software version of the gingerbread 2.3.3 does it have? if you have 4.22 then i would update it to the latest 4.24. i believe that htc released the maintenance ota to help fix that issue.
