This persists even after a couple of power off/power on cycles

try to call again to your voicemail and listen a little bit. After this icon should disappear.

Can you clear it from the notifications panel (bottom swipe)?

I did! I listened to the entire message before clearing it and the icon remained. Looking at it again 10 or 11 hours later it now seems to have gone at last!


Can't try that now, I'm afraid, since it's no longer there, although I think I tried that among other things. Maybe it's just that EE have been taking ages to send a clearance signal or whatever they do after you respond to a notification

I ran into this problem too . And I can't listen to this message since my sim card is gone... The voice mail notification exists for years... Have no idea how to clean it

That's funny... In over 5 years of using Sailfish, I didn't know there even was such an icon. I have the voicemail number added in the Phone settings of course, but when I have voicemail I get an sms from my carrier.

It’s displayed in the form of a notification actually, but this notification is a special one , there’s no close button available, and cleaning all notifications from system menu won’t help. I did a device restore in order to get rid of this , still not working . I wonder where did Sailfish developer store the notification info , might be stored in hardware ?
