Re: Disable Voicemail

Another possibility is to extend the ringing time as long as possible in that callers wouldn't bother waiting for it to drop to voicemail. That's not disabling anything...just making callers wait way longer than they would want to bother to leave a message. If it's universal then it's like *61 or something.

Re: Disable Voicemail

I was able to extend the ring time to 30 seconds to avoid it going to voicemail.

 

  1. Dial *#61# from your phone. Tap Send.
  2. You should see a new screen that displays a bunch of information about what's getting forwarded. You should see a line under "Voice Call Forwarding" that says "Forwards to +11234567890" (where 11234567890 is an eleven digit phone number, likely different from your phone number). Write down this number and tap Dismiss.
  3. Now, dial **61*+11234567890*11*XX# and hit Send, where 11234567890 is the number that you found in step two and XX is the number of seconds you want to wait until voicemail picks up. You can set it in increments of 5, where 30 seconds is the maximum.

Re: Disable Voicemail

Tried to use forward number as my number, got "Connection problem or invalid MMI code." Obviously it should continuously ring, that I want to achieve. Does anybody know how to change forward number to my own to get rid voicemail as useless annoying future completely?

Re: Disable Voicemail

You cannot "remove" voicemail and have the "no answer" conditional call forward unconfigured.

 

The code to "clear" it is ##061# - (or clear all 3 conditional forward settings with ##004#) but this will just reset the voicemail number back.

 

One option is to set conditional forwards to an invalid number, which plays a possibly confusing message, or to a USA number, which PM does not allow forwarding to, but will be accepted in the MMI code - the recipient will just get a fast busy instead of your voicemail.

 

For example, one of the hawaii state department of transportation fax lines: Smiley Happy it will program, but no calls will actually go there:

 

Dial: *004*8085872313#

Undo: ##004#

 

Lastly, another possibly friendlier idea is to record and enable an "extended absence greeting" for your voicemailbox and disable ability to leave messages. Something to the effect of "Sorry, I'm not available right now, please try me again later"

Thanks @Nezgar , I saw those kind of solutions on the forum (aka crutch), but it didn't actually extend ring time too much, only for 30 seconds. I know for sure that Rogers extend time to more then 1 minute somehow, I just switched from them. I don't beleive that they use something different that you guys use for whole phone system. Probably someone must dig into this and finaly fix it. And it would benefit for whole commmunity and users.
