    Sorry my mistake. I thought I saw on my bill where it showed a charge for checking my voicemail and/or read this someplace on the Cingular web site. I just reviewed my latest bill and this is not the case. This is still a major annoyance. I have had my phone since Jan. and this problem just arose yesterday for the first time.
    Treo 750 with:
    Wisbar Advance
    SBSH PocketWeather
    Resco Pocket Explorer
    Pocket Informant
    HSDPA Hack
    Logbook Pro APDL

    Owned lots of others including Original Palm, IBM Palm, Handspring, Treo 650... on an on...

    CK - I'm glad VmailFix worked for you OK.

    From what I've gleaned, it appears that the service provider has to send the correct "cancellation" code to your phone after you've listened to voicemails and that your phone firmware needs to correctly interpret this code for it to clear the notification. So phones with firmware that have been customized by the service provider appear to work OK, but other phones don't clear the voicemail notification.

    However, this doesn't explain why it why it was working OK for you initially then stopped working.

    Like you, I have to pay to retrieve voicemails, which is why I released VmailFix.
