    I went into the app drawer and opened the verizon folder. Click and hold the Visual Voicemail icon and drag it up to the top of the screen where it says disable app.

    That should do it for you.

    If you're using Touch Wiz rather than a custom launcher then there should be a folder w/ the Verizon apps all placed together. In touch wiz, if you hold down the voicemail app there should be an option @ the very top-3rd one that says disable apps. Move voicemail to that and then it should stop the annoying messages.

    Only thing I did was updated the visual voice mail and the notifications stopped.

    Go to settings>general>application manager> filter:all choose visual voicemail and then disable or turn off.

    Thanks...I don't use Touchwiz so that's why I wasn't seeing the VZW folder.

    No its free for 30 days with all the premium features. Then after that I think the only thing it won't do is convert the message into text for you.

    I have gone into the application manager and I can force stop the app but it turns back on. I am not able to turn it off. I have been on hold with Verizon and they told me they were entering a code that would turn it off but that didn't work. I have been communicating on Twitter with @vzwsupport and they were unable to help. This visual voicemail keeps coming back. I don't want it.

    Only way I too got it to stop popping up was to turn on 4g, let the dang thing run through it's setup, and that was that. Couldn't do it over Wi-Fi, just 4g.

    I too was wondering about how to stop this annoying pop-up, as I kept getting that for the first couple days. Then for whatever mysterious reason, the message or pop-up stopped. I'm not even sure what I did or didn't do, but I don't get that annoying message anymore. I'm pretty sure I didn't choose to set it up cuz I kept cancelling out of that.

    Yeah, once I updated it, seemed to quit bothering me as well.

    I'm kinda liking it. For now. lol. I hate having to call my VM for someone that should have left a text or just says "call me", yeah, I see your number, I'd call without the request, lol...

    Curious about the differences between premium other than amount of messages stored and length. But, I'll find out shortly. Seems the minimum "visual voice mail" would do is is transcribe the message to text. But.....

    Visual voice mail refers to retrieving vm with a visual interface, which it does (in contrast to calling your vm box). Speech to text is not a requirement of vvm.

    OK FOLKS THIS IS HOW YOU DEFEAT VERIZON'S NASTY LITTLE MARKETNG PLOY:
    1) Remove the icon from your homescreen (press & hold the icon, drag it to the "remove")
    2) Open your Contacts list & find "Voicemail". Open that contact like you were editing it.
    3) Press the little "4 dots" to get to Settings, select "move to homescreen".
    4) This new icon will open like any other Contact you add to your homescreen. Press it, the press the *86.
    5) No more Visual subscription pop-up.

    So, the interesting thing is that I had turned off the "Voice Mail" app prior to this latest update, and after the update there doesn't seem to be a way to re-enable the app. In the application manager, it looks like it's turned off but the "turn on" button is disabled. (Not that I want to enable it, but it seems like a bug)

    Go to your verizon wireless account and use the Block Services option to block the visual voice mail service (there are two options that need to be disabled). They say the downloads for that service wouldn't count against one's data plan quota but I do not believe it.

    When I go to see what the visual voicemail is there is a box that states subscribe.So I don't clicl on that because I do not want another monthly fee.So now I still have that annoying notification all the time.Did u check ur bill.It could have a $299 charge for the visual voicemail.

    We get voice mail through my work so I didn't want to subscribe but I clicked the subscribe button anyway. The next screen gave me the option to cancel, so I did cancel. If you don't want visual voice mail, but you do want the regular voice mail, I'm suspecting you could follow the same path and have an option to cancel Visual Voice Mail.
