Network Notification (50) New Voice Mail -- how to get rid of?

On my new 9000/ATT when I get a new voicemail I get a big black and white notification that superposes on top of everything saying "Network Notification (50) New voice mail message waiting" and requiring that I select "OK" or "Save" before I can use the phone again.

 

Any way to get rid of this?

 

Thanks.

No.  That's a network function.  What's so hard about just hitting OK?

Re: Network Notification (50) New Voice Mail -- how to get rid of?

This message, "Network Notification (50) New Voice mail message waiting OK/SAVE" seems completely out of place in the Bold's elegant, super-functional user interface.

I have fine grained control of the notifications for all the other messages by editing the profiles.  The other visual cues are tiny little icons which increment themselves silently if I choose, in the background.

This message looks like something burped up from telecom's past -- actually it seems like something left over from the engineering process, like someone forgot to take a "debug.print" statement out.  Why does the end user need to know that this notification is number 50?  Why on earth would I want to "save" it?

The worst thing is that it demands you do something to get rid of it, and you can't use the phone until you comply.  What other operating system demands you tell it "OK" in response to any news from the most mundane to "Cannot find boot sector"?  Microsoft.  I arrived here in Blackberry heaven after 4 years on WinMo 5.  This clunky notification seems like a bug to me.
