Torch 9800 home page will not clear icon: 1 voicemail message waiting.

[ Edited ]

As above, my Blackberry Torch 9800 has an icon at the top of my home page, indicating I have one (1) VoiceMail message unanswered. When I access my voicemail box, the recording states I have no voicemails waiting. Is there a "fix" to this? I have had this BB Torch for more than 4 years and it has always worked well until above. Thanks for any help.

Hi and Welcome to the Community!

Sometimes, that indicator just gets stuck. Typically, fixing it is a matter of calling your BB number from a different line, and allowing that to roll to voice mail. Leave a quick message, long enough to be sure that it is saved properly. Wait for the counter on your BB to increment, then retrieve/delete this VM you created. Often, that clears the counter back to zero, eliminating the "stuck" situation.

Good luck and let us know!

I followed the advice to record another message and then clear it.  After I cleared the new message, the "phantom" message waiting icon went away.  Thank you for the post!
