No There s no way to disable voicemail.
Only thing you can do is make it full so no one can leave any more msg and you have to do that every month. Because it's get reset every 30 days.

I'm not sure if it's possible or not, but you could try messaging @Moderator_Team to see if they can disable it from the back end.

You'll have to do an extended abscene greeting. See below:

Edit: This is no way disables it entirely. Just stops people from leaving messages

Re: Disable Voicemail

It might be possible to disable it through the Call Forwarding options on your phone.

 

For Android, open up the Phone app > Tap on the Menu button > Settings (or Call Settings) > Call Forwarding. You should see the Public Mobile voicemail number listed under "Forward when busy", "Forward when unanswered" , and "Forward when unreachable".

 

Tap on each of these items and delete the voicemail number. This should stop calls from being sent to voicemail (and if someone calls you and you decline or if your phone is off the line will just disconnect instead of forwarding it to voicemail).

Re: Disable Voicemail

Neat trick, but it did not allow me to delete Voicemail number. System would just revert to original number.

My solution was to input +11111111111 as a new number. Woman Wink Worked like a charm! Woman Happy

This is what I do. I just forward it to my home number when busy, unreachable, etc. I've never actually used the voicemail feature.
