Sounds like a bug that Samsung may be working on, that's all I can find out.

It's a missed call notification. Go into your missed call list and view the missed call. Icon will then disappear.

That's the issue it won't go away and seems to be a known bug.

The link you posted was relating to the message icon. The original question related to the phone icon....? The early S3 software did have the message icon bug but has now been corrected on open firmware.... Don't know if O2 are up to date with their releases though.....?
