Missed Calls - a MISS

Addressing missed calls is a real pain in the neck on the Pre

Lately, with my new number for this test drive, I've received a few calls from what appears to be Vietnam, and a couple of other random numbers. When you miss a call, a nice notification shows up at the bottom of the screen showing you the number (or contact) you missed the call from. So, like every other human I expect, I click on the missed all notification, assuming this would accomplish 2 things: Inform me about the missed call (when they called, if a message was left, etc), and clear out the notification at the bottom of the screen.

For some reason beyond my comprehension, the moment you click the missed call, it starts dialing it!!! Not something you want when the call is apparently from VIETNAM!

So far, I have not found a way to clear out the missed call notification without dialing the number of the call you missed.

I have tried ignoring the missed call and go into my call log, but that won't clear it out. The only thing I can do is click the missed call notification, and start clicking 'end call' feverishly until it hangs up. If there is a way to learn about missed calls or clear the notification with out returning the call, it is not remotely obvious, which is a fail as well.

This is an unacceptable and unreasonable lack of functionality, Palm.

**Update**

Some of my fellow bloggers gave some good advice on handling this. Catherine Gouge has a nice blog on all of the notifications ( Notifications: The Good, The Bad, and The Pretty ), and Jamduke reiterated that you can remove a notification by swiping it to the right.

I still wish there was a choice to call a missed call, or any call listing for that matter, rather than having it automatically start calling.
