    Question Turn Voicemail Off?

    Is there a way to turn off/cancel voicemail? Its annoying, its pointless & I want to get rid of it. Is there a way?

    The visual voice mail? You can probably just go disable the app on your phone.. Unless you have an iPhone .

    Nope. I don't use visual voicemail. And iPhone, bite your tongue!
    I just want voicemail to not exist.

    You'd probably have to call Sprint. I assume they could disable it for your line.

    I just noticed that you're on T-Mobile. Does Sprint even have visual voicemail?

    Yes, Sprint has visual voicemail. Regarding op's question, you should be able to disable the feature by calling your voicemail and going through the settings to disable it.

    Where is visual voicemail? I looked in play store, didn't see it. That may be less annoying than having to call and listen to msgs.
    There's nothing in the settings to disable it either.

    Yep. I used to be on Sprint. I know the newer phones have it.. You should be able to find it within the Sprint Zone app I think.

    Ah yes, the joys of having a Nexus... No Sprint apps installed. Lol

    I didn't realize you had a Galaxy Nexus - overlooked the signature in your previous post. Sorry about that.

    That's ok. No big deal. I have the SprintZoneNC_2511.apk from my old Admiral, I suppose I could sideload it.
