    Question Unlocked phones: How to change red circle icon (no visual voicemail)?

    Hey guys,

    For those of you who are unlocked on non-AT&T:

    Is there anyway to change the phone icon so that the red circle doesn't appear when you have voicemails waiting?

    Some providers allow you to turn off "Message Waiting Indicator" in your actual voice mailbox preferences, which might do the trick...

    Thus far, I haven't yet found any way to easily do this on the iPhone itself, although I'm sure there's a way....

    I wonder if it could be as easy as finding the icon for the default state of the "voicemail waiting" icon and changing it to the "no voicemails waiting" icon?

    that should do the trick..

    but why would you want do disable the indicator in the first place? even if you don't have visual voicemail, I think it's nice to know when you've got new voicemail waiting..

    The voicemail waiting notification seems to be causing quite a few issues with unlocked phones. I never get notified of waiting voicemails currently, whenever I have a missed call I have to dial and check, might as well turn it off

    Well, my indicator works almost fine... The only issue I presently have is that it comes on by default after a reset or coming out of airplane mode, regardless of whether I have new messages or not, and doesn't turn off until a new voicemail message is actually deleted (which in some cases means I have to leave myself one and then erase it just t clear the indicator).

    In some ways that behaviour makes sense, as the cell network only sends notification updates when something actually changes in the voicemail box, but the phone itself shouldn't default to tuning it on when it re-acquires service,

    The red dot also appears when you have missed a call. If this is the cause, simply go look at the 'Recents' in the Phone, and then when you come back out the dot will go away.

    Mine does this as well but it will go away when I call voicemail. I don't have a message, but listen to the nice lady talk for about three seconds and hang up...go back to home screen and the dot is gone. I don't have to leave a message to get it to go away...try it, sounds like you and I have the same one-and-only issue with our unlocks.

    Isn't it great to be free? Almost as good as the opposable thumb! :p

    Spicy Chicken has released a new application called Customize (takes the place of Dockswap) that lets you change the badge icon. This might help solve the problem. It's available via Installer.app.
