    Hi,

    Everything was fine (since 4/28) until yesterday....all of a sudden, there is a notification in the status bar for 2 new voice mails- I am, and have always used google voice for my voicemail - the notificaiton says to call my gv number, which is unusual, because it usually says that one of my contacts left a voicemail - anyhow, I have no new gv messages - went online and deleted all of them, also powered on and off the phone, even removed the check mark in settings to notify in the status bar......can't get rid of this this notification....there is no "clear" option, as you usually get when checking notifications from the menu button

    Even calling my gv number manually, entering my pin, and hearing "you have no new messages" doesn't remove the notification from the status bar....this is very weird

    Anyone else exp something like this from gv ??

    Wow, that's quite the bug. If restarting doen't clear it, I'd just uninstall, restart and reinstall the app.

    this happened to me as well. I went into settings-->Call-->Clear Voicemail notification.

    Not sure why this happens but this will clear the notification.
