    With Virgin, I'm pretty sure you have to call them on 789 and ask them to do it from their end.

    With T Mobile you need to speak to an adviser and they will swich it off for you.

    Yep, same with Virgin. Quick phone call to 789 or secure mail through website & they will disable it.

    Dial 150 press option 3 and then 3 again and one of the roaming options is to turn off voicemail.

    I might be wrong, but isn't 150 a Virgin Media option (i.e. not Virgin Mobile)?

    Having just turned my vmail off and on I believe after calling t-mobile on 150 the menu options are:

    14112 - off
    14111 - on

    Awesome this worked perfectly. I have been having trouble with spam calls, at first I was doing well by blocking them on my phone but now they are leaving voicemail messages.

  • denbrewers
    I'm sorry, BernieF - I've just checked, but it didn't work on my T-mobile, sadly. There's no option №3 where the second digit goes in your combination, 1 or 2 only

    Useful thread.

    I've just sat through the T-Mobile options and found that for me it was:

    Diverts on: 123311

    Diverts off: 123312

    I have an iphone so I think there is an extra stage in there (the second digit).

    Another way is to send a text to 150 with:

    Voicemail Divert Off

    or

    Voicemail Divert On

    That'll work too....
    I say it as it is - you may not like that but what would you prefer? A string of false platitudes that are no help whatsoever just to make you feel better? If my advice has helped, please press the Thanks button over here ----------------V. Cheers
