Default [Verizon] Turning OFF SMS Message of New Voice-Mail Received

Please Login to Remove!

I tried to post this question the other day, but completely messed up what I was writing.

I would like my Verizon Blackberry to NOT receive an SMS Message from Verizon when I get a new voice mail.

The reason for this is that I have our servers at work setup to SMS message me when one of them detects a problem with another server. I would like the SMS message tone to mean to me that there is a server problem that I need to look into right away. I don't want to have to jump to the Blackberry to check just because I hear the SMS tone and it's a voice mail that I missed because I was in the other room or on the other phone.

I don't receive SMS messages from friends or coworkers, so those are not an issue.

I spoke with Verizon's Blackberry support and they don't even acknowledge that their service sends an SMS message upon receipt of a new Voice-Mail and thinks that I might be getting them because my number was originally a Nextel Number on a Blackberry and ported to Verizon.

Has anyone been able to do this?
