Default Turn voicemail off on T-Mobile & Virgin Mobile

How do I turn off voicemail on T-Mobile & Virgin Mobile.

Phoned 150 & 121 respectively & can't hear an option from the plethora available.

Thanks

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)?

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.

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
