Default Need to get rid of annoying VM notification in status bar

I have root and Xposed. How can I get rid of the voicemail notification in the status bar???? I use Google Voice for voicemail. I don't know my pin for AT&T VM, nor do I care. I know I can clear data from the phone app to kill the icon in the status bar, but it reappears every time I reboot. There has to be a method to disable this, no?

Have you tried dialing your voicemail and actually listenning to your voicemail(s)??? I mean, that's one of the ways to clear the notification.

That's the only way to clear it as far as I know.

Actually you might be able to block the notification using the xposed module Gravitybox. In the statusbar tweaks there is an option to hide ongoing notifications.

Yeah, it wants a pin. I have no idea what that pin is. Who listens to voicemails anymore? Google Voice translates them to text and delivers them to my email inbox. It isn't 2008 any more.

Edit: I have figured out the pin. I have 296 new messages. Ain't nobody got time for that.
