    try reading the posts,

    here it is pasted just for you :-)

    yes, it can be done on both contract and paygo.

    you need to ask for "automatic divert to answerphone" to be cancelled.

    the other for getting a message, but without being to leave a msg is called
    the Extended Abcense greeting. You set that up yourself by calling 123.

    You can ask Orange to turn off the answerphone completely, but for
    most people having the autodivert off and switching it on and off from
    the handset makes far better sense.

    What use is that? The caller has to pay not to get through to you.
    With the answerphone divert off, they don't have to pay not to leave a
    message.

    All you have to do is call OCS and ask them to "turn off the
    autodivert to answerphone". It is important to ask for that, and not
    use different words to explain what you want.

    If the person you get doesn't understand, or says it can't be done,
    just politely say "never mind" and call again in two minutes.

    Eventually you will get one who knows their job, and will sort it for
    you in seconds.

    There are two options for you. Orange can turn it off for you or you can
    set what's called an extended absence greeting and at the same time you
    can choose not to allow callers to leave a message - so callers can hear
    a pre-recorded message from you e.g. "Please ring me back later" and
    then they will not be able to leave a message.

    I would say three options
    1) Orange turn it off completely (no costs to callers)
    2) Orange cancel "automatic divert to answerphone" and then you should be
    able to control diverts
    3) setting yourself an extended absence greeting as you described

    See my previous post - the option is actually called "no auto divert to
    voicemail" and you have to get it enabled. If you ask them to turn off
    the auto divert to voicemail they actually enable the no auto divert to
    voicemail option on your account.

    Experience shows that the OCS staff usually fall into two categories:

    1. Don't understand what you're asking for and offer to do all manner
    of other things, such as delete the voicemail inbox.

    2. Understand what you're asking for and understand the 'no auto divert
    to voicemail' option.

    Occasionally you'll get one who doesn't understand what you want unless
    you phrase it exactly the way it looks on their screen, ie "no auto
    divert to voicemail".
