The voice mail alert tone seems to use what is set for the sms alert. I want to turn off the vmail alert but still get the sms alert. Has anyone experimented with this?

i dont know verizon but there are posts about this. something about verizon sends sms for every voicemail and theres no way to stop either of them.. im no expert but i seem to remember that. search for verizon voicemail, i think most people have been trying to stop the sms and not the voicemail alert.

Try MessageAlerts by Webmessenger. I have created separate rules for situations like this. The program basically overrides your Profile settings.
