What is the little blue bell icon and HOW do I get rid of it?

Hi all,

I keep getting a little blue bell icon with 2 red curved lines up at the top right corner of my screen. I do not have any alarms or alerts set. What is this and how do I get rid of it? (permanently would be nice). Thanks in advance for any wisdom y'all can impart.

Probably a GPS location on symbol, then.

 

It it is actually a "bell", could be you have an Alarm set.

Actually neither of the above (I had said I have no alarm set).

 

Turns out it is the symbol for voicemail calls I didn't receive (thank you from someone else who also has the same problem with their Pearl). To get rid of it one must go into the voicemail area and manually delete those calls.

That makes perfect sense.

 

The icons vary GREATLY from device to device and theme to theme.

Mine don't look like that at all.
