    Voicemail badge won't clear!

    I swapped the Tour out for a new one yesterday and in the process of setting it up I received two voicemails. I had not installed VVM yet. Because I'm waiting on my hybrid PRL to push through, I didn't try to call and clear them. I was however able to reload most of my apps, including VVM.

    I ran VVM and cleared/deleted the messages. However, I still have the standard voicemail notification badge on the homescreen and after several reboots and battery pulls, it will not go away. It's the (what I call) BB VM icon, not the VVM notification. How can I clear it?

    Just a shot in the dark here TM....Try calling your voice mailbox. This action may reset the notification.

    Good Luck :fing02:

    Yeah I tried that one. It's almost as if VVM has taken over the notification system. I'm considering removing VVM, calling VM and clearing (I hope) then reinstalling VVM.

    Yup yup...

    I tried calling VZW to see if they could reset it. BUT, the hybrid PRL hasn't pushed yet and I've dropped the call both times I've tried :laugh2:

    Hey TM...
    Just a thought here. I noticed that you are running the 4.7.1.42 OS for that 9630.
    Is this still the case and if it is you may want to consider reverting back to the Stock OS that came with the device.
    My tour has been rock solid and so I have not dared to trick the OS out at all.

    I'm considering it. The first thing I did was upgrade the OS, then set up BES. One question I haven't figured out. If I go back to .40, how the heck do I restore my BBM contacts??? I'm running 5.0 and apparently the auto restore feature isn't working on BES?

    If you make a backup through the DM, you can restore your BBM contacts through the restore app. Works like a charm.

    Good Luck :biggthumpup:
