Default 1 Missed Call? Still? Please Help?

Please Login to Remove!

At the top of my Curve, I have a little yellow Phone Icon with a 1 next to it.
It has been there for going on 3 weeks.
I have since clicked "Mark all prior opened"
"Delete all prior" etc, and still it remains.
Also I have pulled the battery about 4 times.

Anyone have any other ideas of how to get rid of it?
Your help is greatly appreciated as always!

Thank you.

Unfortunately, I have followed those instructions to a T.
All that is left is to wipe the OS.
I have never done this before. Is this really a good idea?

Well--you do get a freshly loaded OS!

Backup!

How do I reload the OS?
And, should I stick with the AT&T OS? Or should I load something else?
Is it a little too difficult to be messing with, or is it pretty simple?

well it is easy enough, but you do need to know what you are doing.
I would use the latest OS for your device. See the link.
Following these instructions exactly as posted will do it.
Do a complete backup first, for safety.

Desktop Manager > Backup Restore. It will create a file named "*.ipd".

Also, read this:
How do I backup my Third Party Applications on my BB? - BlackBerryFAQ

And it sounds as if Desktop Manager might be new to you. For this, get version 4.2, Service pack 2, withOUT the Roxio Media Manager, the smaller download.
BlackBerry Desktop Manager Downloads - BlackBerryFAQ

It is also wise, as a safety measure, if you did a sync to Outlook or something as well. Not that necessary.

Load the OS:

Yes. The device will reboot twice during the process and will take 15-20 minutes to boot up. Subsequent reboots will go quick.

Nevermind, it finished. It just took forever.
No more Missed Call Icon though
