Default Turning off Voicemail on Virgin Mobile.

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

Ring Customer Services on 789 and ask them to do it for you.

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.
