Default Voice Mail Alert as a Text

Please Login to Remove!

How do you disable this feature? When I get a voice mail alert an Icon appears on my home screen. I also get a text msg letting me know I received a Voice Mail. I would like to turn this feature off and only be notified by the Icon on the home screen along with an audible alert. Is this possible? Please advise.

If I understand you correctly, this will fix your problem:

Phone Dialer screen > Options > Call Logging

Choose "None"

Is your service newer than 30 days? Mine came with a free 30 day sub to SpinVox which converts voice to text. I don't plan on keeping it.

You can stop the calls from being logged in your Message list as indicated in Post #2, but you cannot stop the text message alert for Voice Mail.

You probably can't -- check with your carrier. It's not a BB setting. It's a feature of your carrier's VM system.
