Question How to display # of voicemails on main screen

Hi,

As you all know the phone App icon displays the number of missed calls in a little red circle. This is the total of missed calls whether or not they left a message. To find out the number of voicemails, you need to enter the Phone App. I would like to see the number of voicemails at a glance on the main screen for at-a-glance convenience.

It seems so ergonomically critical -- to know if you've got a message waiting instantly! I can't imagine this isn't in high demand.

I know if the BlackBerry {BOO! } can do it, so must the iPhone. But a call to Apple tech support says officially this can't be done. I need a mod, hack, third party app, something! Help and thanks. I'm a programmer and IT Consultant (without iPhone programming experience) so I don't mind getting my hands dirty.

-Daniel
