I believe the only way to get rid of the voicemail icon is to empty it. You can call your number from a landline or skype and press # once u hear your voicemail and you can clear it that way.

If the phone has only ever been text only you most likely haven't set up your voicemail. This voicemail alert will be there until it is set up and unfortunately you can only do that from your phone and not by calling it from another.
I would suggest either ignoring it or buying a minutes booster, (assuming prepaid). You can save the rest of the minutes for some other time that you may need them.
