Does anybody else have a problem with Galaxy S9 voicemail notifications? It comes up even if there is no voicemail, and when there is deleting all messages doesn't make it go away. Clearing the phone app data and cache makes the notification and indicator go away but only temporarily. It's driving me crazy.

Unfortunately that doesn't fix the problem. I've reset factory reset it it twice; once before the Pie update and two weeks ago when I had my screen replaced. The issue has existed since the first day I was issued the phone running Oreo. It appeared to be brand new when I got it.
That does work, but only temporarily. The voicemail notification will eventually come back in time, even without so much as an incoming phone call, sometimes in a day or two, sometimes within an hour or two. I don't see any type of pattern.
Maybe it's worth noting that before this phone I used to have an iPhone and I had visual voice mail. I thought maybe something was wrong on the account end so I phoned in an had my add-ons looked at. No issues found.
I fixed the problem. It appears to be a bug in the Samsung Phone app. I installed a modified version of the Google dialler that works with the phone, set it as default and then revoked all of the Samsung phone app's permissions. Problem solved.
I just came to post the fix here in case others run into the problem.
I can see how inconvenient it can be to keep getting that notification.
Let's try these to disable and then re-enable the “show notification” option via the voicemail app settings. This fix is known to remove the ever persistent new voicemail notification. Here’s what you need to do:
Keep us posted if that works!
