I routinely receive a notification - that I can't remove easily - in this format:
"phone symbol" Phone "time stamp"
Dial +1 512-968-9010
The time stamp changes from time-to-time and nearly always reflects the current date.
If I do touch the alert, it takes me to phone keypad with that number ready to dial.
I have tried the option to clear phone cache, delete data. No luck.
I have tried turning off alerts.
Of course phone restarts etc.
I am being obtuse here - how do I lock the phone. By the way, for grins I put in airplane mode and then took it out and the time stamp on the fake voicemail message updated to current.
I did try locking it remotely and was successful. But no change when I tried to remove the alert.
no calls from this number are showing up at present. History shows some from a few months ago and I reported and blocked it it. Honestly, do not know how this alert/notification is being generated.
Once i cleared voicemails out of visual voicemail on my device, the notification went away. since then I have accumulated some voicemails in visual VM and am not getting the notification. I will say I made an effort to shut down all notifications (lots of places to search for different types of notifications) and had shut them all down and then gradually started adding as needed.
