    Well looks like I have this issue, that I've heard discussed. I rebooted because performance seemed sluggish, and after reboot I got voicemail notification. There were five messages, which I deleted. Now the notification won't go away.

    Reboot again, that should resolve it.

    It doesn't solve it.

    vzw knows about it and will give you free visual vmail until it's fixed, just call support and ask for level 2 to help.

    Odd on each rom based on the leaks that will ususally make the notification go away given you don't have any unheard messages

    Yeah, it is slightly annoying, especially the times I get a voicemail but no missed call notification. But I don't get too many calls, so its not a horrific experience for me.

    I consider this more than an annoyance. It's a massive screwup that deserves more attention than its getting. This is a wireless telephone, this feature is critical.

    Call Verizon and complain. It's the only way to get this fixed.

    I spent a couple hours on the phone complaining yesterday. People on the other end of the line talked like they never heard of problems with the TB. Got a call from a supervisor today. Her response was basically "I feel sorry for you but nothing we can do". I felt like I was the ONLY person that EVER called with a TB problem, even though I knew that couldn't possibly be true. 2.3.4 took a marginal phone and moved it from miserable to totally unacceptable. Mine is my business. I miss calls because the ringer doesn't always ring or I am on the phone with someone else and then have no clue that there is voicemail.

    Don't know about you but I am tired of rebooting every couple hours. Then, when you get the notifications after rebooting, the only way I have found to get rid of the notification is to reboot again.

    The good news is that the Verizon people told me the fix was "Coming Soon". LOL

    I followed the advice of using Google voice and that works. I know, we should not have to find a work-around, but other than the voicemail issue, with the GB update, my phone has been functioning much better.

    Any update to this problem? It's getting annoying having to check voice mail to see if I have any.
