voicemail notification but no messages

I have an LG V10, and occasionally the voicemail notification appears and even after I have cleared the messages in my inbox, it will continue to tell me that I have new messages. How can I stop my phone from doing this?

For the basic non-visual voicemail, I have found sometimes the notification gets stuck. The way I have found to clear it is by doing the following. I would call my cell phone number from another phone and leave a 2 second message just long enough for the system to register it. Then I will access the voicemail on my phone and delete the message I just left. Afterwards the notification symbol is removed.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

Help is right here for you, Caelee. Let's wok together to resolve the ghost voice mail notification. Before we start, have you done the steps that Ann154 suggested? If so then what was the results? Also, can we assume that you are using the basic voice mail and not a third party voice mail service?

I have, even had other voicemail get left that I checked and deleted but no change.  My phone continues to activate the icon And the notification sound goes off multiple times a day.  So I check just to make sure I haven't missed anything.

From what I've heard, force stopping the phone app will clear it. Just open the phone app after to get it running again to make sure you don't miss any calls.

I have had this problem for months with my Pixel 2.  Tried all the recommended fixes (calling my phone multiple times to leave messages, toggling message indicator off/on, restarting Phone app, clearing cache, etc.) but no joy.  Today I downloaded the newest version the Phone app (Sept 11 2019) from the Google Play store and voila!  The ghost voice mail icon is gone.  I'm curious to know if this works for anyone else.
