    I am off to America tomorrow and I can't seem to find a way to turn off
    Voice mail. If some one rings me and I don't want to speak to them
    (Work) I just want to leave the phone to ring out and then thats it. At
    the moment if the phone rings out, they get transferred to voicemail. I
    don't want any message whilst I am away, plus it probable costs me when
    I receive a message to say I have a voicemail

    I have gone to the setting for divert calls and switched it off. but it
    is still the same. I can't seem to find any setting on my voicemail to
    switch it off.

    Anyone any Ideas?

    I am on Virgin Mobile.

    TIA

    I'm going o'seas soon so I have an interest in this. Surely there is
    no charge for receiving the voicemail notification on Virgin? Or is
    there a charge for the call diversion to voicemail?

    Thanks

    Orange sorted this problem out some years ago and it should not now occur! I
    would have thought that the other networks would have also have had it fixed
    by now as well!

    Useful to know.

    Thanks for the clarification.

    It is useful and free (to the receiver) in the UK but I must admit it
    looks like an expensive facility when roaming.

    Virgin's website quotes:

    Set your call diverts

    * When someone reaches your voicemail, you get charged the cost of
    sending the call to the country you're in, and then back to the UK
    even though they may not leave a message.
    * But you can get around this - just set your phone to 'divert all
    calls' to voicemail.
    * However, this does mean that you won't get any incoming calls.


    They don't seem to mention the option of being able to get them to
    turn voicemail off and even the above was not easy to find.
