Ever since one of the more recent iOS updates, my phone is constantly reminding me of new voicemails. It can be seven days old, and it is still sending me reminders. If I don't want to check my voicemail, I don't really want constant reminders.

What is worse is they tend to go off at weird times. I can be getting a phone call, and in the middle of trying to answer it, I get a reminder for a voicemail that was sent 4 days ago. I have to clear out the reminder before I can answer. It has actually made me miss calls. They also go off in the middle of the night, even when my Do Not Disturb is set.

An initial notification is great, but I would love to make all the subsequent reminders go away.

iPhone 4S / iOS 9.3.5

Sounds like something a little stange is going on. Perhaps your voicemail needs to be reset through your carrier/provider?
