    Default Is there a way to turn off Voicemail Notifications?

    I don't listen to voicemails, but I constantly get notifications when people leave them. It is time-consuming to go to Voicemail and delete them every time to make the notification go away. Is there a way to turn off Voicemail Notifications? Better yet, is there any way to turn off Voicemail all together?

    This is a fantastic forum. I've been able to find the answers to all my other questions via the Search feature, but I didn't see this question posted.

    Cheers.

    I believe you can call your service provider and have them disable your vm.

    I had issues with Sprint disabling my Voicemail since it is part of a "bundled" contract.

    You can go into call settings and change your voicemail number. This is the number used where calls are forwarded to leave messages. No number = no forwarded calls. You can also use another service like Google voice to manage your voicemails and turn off notifications from the app so that way you still receive voicemails but can check them whenever you want.

    Yo, I like the advice on changing the voicemail number but when I go to change it to random number like say 8673345698 it says the change was unsuccessful
    Is there something like a certain number to change it too that allows the phone to accept it as a new voicemail number? I'm currently on bell in whitehorse Yukon.

    I had mine disabled at the CS end since I use a 3rd party VVM so I can't test but you used to be able to dial *52 to disable VM (*51 to turn it back on). Won't hurt to try that.

    That would be my advice right there. Google Voice for VM is *soooo* much better than using carrier's dial-in service. Got a VM you don't want to listen to, just clear the notification...of course, it's actually a lot easier to listen to your VMs because you don't actually have to dial in to get them, just click the notification and listen. No need to worry about your mailbox filling up or messages expiring either.

    I use Google voice but I still get a separate notification from the phone, even when I don't have any vm... Is that happening to anyone else??

    I recently encountered the same problem. I was using google voice for my voicemail with no problems on my Samsung Galaxy s4. However, after encountering some problems with my google voice mail, my voice mail notification appeared for the first time and will not clear.

    After much reading, it is simple to clear. Just go to settings, application manager, slide the bar to "all" and then go to phone and hit clear data. That should get rid of the phones voice mail notification without rebooting and no change to your phone contacts.

    However, I just rebooted my phone and much to my dismay the same voice mail notice indicating I had 3 voice mails reappeared and would not clear via the "clear" button.

    I simply went back to application manager, and cleared the data on my phone and the notification is gone.

    As I think about it now, I think the answer is simple. The reason I encountered the problem in the first place is because my google voice stopped working so I activated the voicemail that came with my phone. When I called to test the phones voice mail, I was surprised to hear that my message bank was full. (I never used the phones voice mail system) I then deleted every message on the phones voice mail except three test voicemails that I left after deleting all others. I then reconnected google voice mail as my default voice mail and it worked fine but the same message that I have 3 voice mails remained. I think my mistake was not deleting the three test voice mails I left after deleting all the others.

    So here is my suggestion. Either, go to phone and clear data every time the voice mail notification appears and will not go away. Or, reconnect the voice mail service that came with the phone and delete the open messages you are receiving notifications about. Then reactivate google voice before you get another call that goes to your phones voicemail.

    I have an S3 and my carrier told me to put in, using the key pad ##002#. Tried it and it worked. Do same again to turn it back on again.

    I called my provider and had it stopped even tho its part of my plan with no issue the only other thing I did was to block the text missed call notification +8888 number in text and all good but this is on Canadian Fido network think Bell should be same .

    Thanks, however that doesn't work on Sprint Galaxy S5 as of November 2015. The "turn off voicemail notifications" option has been removed from the preferences. This voicemail app is one of the most annoying apps ever imo, why dont they give the option to disable notifications. Its so annoying in fact, I'm thinking of switching to AT&T just to avoid it. ~

    It really IS so annoying!
    Sprint is lagging way behind the other carriers in these privacy issues. I get a half dozen calls every day on my Sprint LG G2 from "UNKNOWN." There is no way to block them. When I use the private call rejection, all it does is send the calls to voicemail. And all that means is that instead of hearing my phone ring with an incoming call, I hear a voicemail notification ring. And -- surprise -- there is no way to turn off voicemail notification rings. So either way, Sprint is giving the UNKNOWN caller priority over the person who is paying the bill on the phone... me!

    p.s. The UNKNOWN callers are another issue entirely that Sprint has no solution for but other carriers do. Sprint's solution is to go online to My Sprint and enter the numbers to be blocked. When the numbers come in as UNKNOWN, and voicemail app says that they are from "UNKNOWN@emaildomain.comverse" there is absolutely no way to block them. Either way I'm screwed and have to put up with my phone ringing all day with harassing phone calls from telemarketers, political campaigns and other spammers. It's so aggravating!
