Angry 8130 Verizon Voicemail Icon AND Unheard Message Text!

Please Login to Remove!

Anyone figure out a way to stop Verizon from sending a text message to your 8130 everytime you have a new voicemail? Isnt that what the damn voicemail icon is for?!?

Wow, great first post here. Welcome.

You can call and ask them, it's a Verizon thing.

That is strange. I've had a variety of Verizon Wireless devices including phones, PPCs, and Smartphones. The Pearl is the only one that ever received a text message for a voice mail. All other devices only showed a voice mail icon. If you do contact VZW and get an explanantion, please post it back here.

I get the text message but there is also a tiny little icon in the message area where you see the text message icon when you get a text. If that little icon that kind of resembles the profiles icon does not show up somethings wrong.

Hope this helps.

Who determined this is a "Verizon thing"? It happens on my Sprint 8130 as well. It could well be an "8130 thing," and therefore relevant to this forum.

Sure is ... and it has nothing to do with Verizon or BB. You need to change an option on your phone. Here goes:

Click -----> Phone -----> Options ------> Call Logging -----> Click NONE and save!!! Viola ... you should be good to go!!!

Hope that helps ... if not ... John Clark will be here to the rescue ... he is the resident genius

Pastor, that is good for not logging missed calls, but has nothing to do with Voicemails.

I am on Verizon and I have become annoyed by that same issue... But as was stated above, Verizon says there's no way to change it... *shrug*
