Notifications are a handy and even necessary feature of most smartphones, but sometimes a software glitch can cause notification icons in the status bar to persist when they should disappear. This defeats the purpose of notification icons, because it becomes impossible to tell if there’s a new message or item because the notification never goes away. This is a particularly common issue for voicemail notifications of LG V30 (and many other Android devices). If you find yourself staring at persistent voicemail notifications that just won’t go away, try these steps to get rid of them.
Solution #1Leave yourself a new voicemail. Use the voicemail notification to check and listen to this voicemail. Clearing your voicemail inbox should clear your persistent notification. If not proceed to the next solution.
Solution # 2If notifications continue to persist, clear all data from your voicemail app.
- Go to Apps
- Tap on Phone
- Select Clear Data
- Power down LG V30
- After a few seconds, power LG V30 back on
