    I have been using Google Voice with its voicemail feature for several weeks now and its been working perfectly. Recently after missing a telephone call, GV placed a "New voicemail" message in the notification bar. After clicking on this message the program dials my google voice number - the system tells me that I don't have any messages. I cannot remove this message from my notification bar.

    I have deleted that message on my GV account on the computer but I cannot find any way to delete it on my phone. It won't go away.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Maybe under manage apps -> GV -> clear cache?

    go into voicemail settings under menu, and settings at your homescreen....in there should be something to 'clear voicemail counter' or whatever, and the icon will go away

    Thanks to "necosino" and "jayochs" for your help with this issue. I finally got the voicemail message deleted from the notification bar as follows:

    settings>call>clear voicemail notification

    I hope this helps other people who might encounter the same problem.

    I had this same problem. Leave yourself a message, listen and delete and see if that works. It did for me.

    Was the VM notification the GV one, or the default VZW one? I had this situation happen (the notification was default VZW) and what happened was that my husband forwarded me a VM to my "real" #, not my GV #, and I had no way of getting to my VZW VM. I had to deactivate GV long enough to dial *86 and delete the VM.

    I had deactivated VZN VM service so I was using only GV.
