How to clear missed call (1) notification on my phone icon?

I have "1" on my phone icon on the home screen. I know it stands for a missed call. I also know for what call it is displayed. But ever since I did view that call in the call log. i also answered back from that log. I also messaged that call but the missed call wouldn't go away from the phone icon.

please help.

go to call log and delete all history.

I had the same problem with mine. I would constantly see the icon on the top left corner. It would go away, but come back every time I powered up my phone. I actually had to pull down the top panel and click on the notification. Simply going to my logs only temporarily solved the problem.

What launcher are you using? if it is GO launcher, this bug frequently happens...just restart your launcher will do...but if it is your stock launcher, you can reboot your phone...same reason: a bug...:)

probably a bug. But maybe you nee to check for recorded messages too?

Q: How do I clear my notification bar?
A: Pull down the notification bar using a top to bottom finger swipe (like a windows shade), then hit the clear notifications soft button.

What phone and launcher are you using?

Call your phone and leave a new voicemail. Then log in and delete it. Work?

Voice mail is not supported by the operator in my country and we don't use voice mail on phones.

I don't have any phone launchers installed. I user Samsung's default ICS launcher that came from the factory.

Worse comes to wrost...try to find the launcher system app detail in manage applications (inside settings)...then clear app data...your home screen settings will be reset though...

chrisluger2012, are you still facing this problem. My last resort is to do a factory boot but thats painful...

Go to Settings > Application Manager > All applications (on the top). Locate the "BadgeProvider" app, once in there select "clear data" then restart your phone

Thanks oshoamy, I had the same notification problem quoted in this thread. Tried all the suggested solutions but without success. Followed yours and that seems to have done the job. Cheers!

Thanl You again.

I have quite the opposite problem: the badge disappears when I enter Logs. Until then it is displayed in the notification bar but when entering logs it is automatically cleared from logs too. If I have several missed calls I cannot tell witch number had X missed calles because they are not shown.
I think that this is called by a 3rd party app. I have installed several dialers but now they are all uninstalled. In messages badge notification is displayed normally.
