Default Unknown symbol on BB screen

There is a symbol on my 6230 that looks like o_o with the o's closer to the line than shown here. It is where the mail icon shows up whenever there is a message. I can't figure out what it is for. Anyone can tell me how to make it go away?

Tape reel - indicates that a voice mail is waiting. Retrieve the message and the indicator goes away.

Thanks much! Now I just got to figure out how to retrieve it. (I'm deaf).

Ah - that adds a bit of a complication. On many BBs, if you hold and press W/1 key, it will automatically dial VM. Is there someone around who could help get the message indicator off (or you live with it since you know what it is).

I have to find someone. My daughter tried, but she's too young to understand it.

I assume special equipment varies by carrier but if you can't listen to the voice messages, maybe it would be better if you could turn off the voice message ability of your phone and just have a standard message that says please don't leave a voice message, send me a email message etc at [email address] or call phone number 123-4567 to leave me a breal message.

Btw, I had that funny little symbol myself last week, but didn't actually have a message. In order to clear it, I left myself a message and then went into VM and deleted it and the o_o went away ;)

My wife isn't deaf but wears hearing aids and can't really hear well on most phones, so we rarely talk and generally use email and IM, so I understand some of your frustration.

I tried turning voicemail off but can't figure out how to do it. I went to phone >options> forwarding and set it to do not forward, but when I go back to check, the number is there again.

you need to call your carrier to get the vm removed.

Quick question...is everyone else getting 2 logos when they get a voicemail...both a cassette tape icon and the o_o symbol...if so why are there 2...isn't that a little redundant...an if not...does anyone have an answer as to why this is happening on my phone? This is happening on the 8100...
