How do I turn off my Voicemail?

Hi, im new to the forum! Ive had quite a few blackberry's and get on really well with it. I would like to turn off my voicemail as it costs me every time i want to listen to one. I would rather not have the feature. I cant find where to do this? Any help please!

Have you considered using the Visual Voicemail?  It actually sends you the voicemail like a MMS. 


It is funny, because I came to this forum to try to figure out how to turn OFF my visual voicemail because I don't like the fact that I don't get time/date stamps on it and really need that feature.  So if anyone can help with that, I'd appreciate it!

Yes, visual voicemail is good. See if your service provider has that as an option. My service provider calls it "Voicemail to text" - it's great; every time someone leaves a voice mail, I get a text message with the content of what the person said. I rarely if ever have to actually call in and listen to my voicemail anymore.

Are you on GSM network? If so then  try ##002#. This will cancel all types of call divert.
