    Does anyone else have 2 message icons in the app drawer? They're both shortcuts to the Messages App... but one of them takes you to the "All Messages" tab, the other to Voicemail tab.

    I believe one of them is supposed to say Voicemail - green icon - instead... like it used to.

    I have the same problem on mine. I actually found that if you long press on the message icon that is supposed to be the voicemail one and drag it to one of the screens (adding it as a shortcut) it actually changes to the the green voicemail icon both on the screen and the icon in the app drawer. You do not need to keep the shortcut on the screen once this change takes effect. Without the shortcut to the screen it is only temporary though, it looks like it might last longer if you keep the shortcut.

    Just followed your advice and same thing, it instantly morphed into a voicemail icon. Odd!
