    Someone recently left me a voicemail and that brought up two icons, one that's recognizable as a voicemail icon and the other is a SMS icon. In my SMS and MMS view there's actually a line that reads Voicemail. Is there any way to get rid of this SMS icon?

    What I meant was, how do I not get double notifications of voicemail... the voicemail icon itself is enough to let me know so the SMS notification is kind of redundant.

    oh. it is redundant, i agree, but thats the way phones are set up. all voicemails are sent as sms on all phones*. no way of stopping this.

    You can also merge them with your Message window. This annoyed me to no end when I got my Tour. I still don't get who thinks this is a good idea, that even after you've checked your voicemail you still have an extra notification icon.

    I guess it makes sense to remove the service if you don't want it, but it was the " i personally dont ever listen to them" part that I thought was hilarious.

    I admit, some voicemails are annoying when it's your friend or something just saying to call them back, cause you already get a missed call notification, why would you feel the need to leave a pointless voicemail? But it is good for when a business calls you and you don't feel like talking, so you just let them say what they need to say in the voicemail
