The Voicemail 'dot' relates more or less to the carrier's voicemail notifications sent to the phone. That's why the 'dot' disappears if you hang up your voicemail call when you don't have messages. It's a GSM/SIM feature, not a text message.
Callwave's PhonePage and Vtxt systems are very much different in that it doesn't use your phone's voicemail system but its own, sending voicemails to an email account. Since it doesn't interact directly with the carrier, and in relation the SIM card, there is no way it can send a signal to your phone's SIM to turn off a voicemail notification or the 'dot' on the iPhone.
Netzero's PrivatePhone system works the same way, and I've even had one time that one person 'paged my Cingular voicemail (it left a notification on my BJ) while another left a voicemail on Netzero (I forwarded my unreachable/busy calls to PrivatePhone)... so I had to call both numbers to get both messages... that was confusing.
