Are you tired of receiving unwanted voicemail messages on your Android device? Blocking voicemail can help you avoid these pesky interruptions.

In this tutorial, we’ll guide you through the process of blocking voicemail on your Android device. Let’s get started!

Step 1: Open Phone App

First, open the Phone app on your Android device. This app typically has an icon that resembles a phone receiver.

Step 2: Access Settings

In the Phone app, locate and tap on the three-dot menu icon in the top-right corner of the screen. This will open a drop-down menu. From the menu, select Settings.

Step 3: Call Settings

In the Phone settings, scroll down until you find an option called Call Settings. Tap on it to proceed.

Step 4: Voicemail Settings

In the Call Settings menu, look for an option labeled Voicemail. Tap on it to access your voicemail settings.

Step 5: Disable Voicemail

To block voicemail messages, you will need to disable your voicemail service. Look for an option that says Voicemail Service, Voice Messaging Service, or similar.

Tap on it to proceed.

If you have multiple SIM cards in your device, make sure to select the one for which you want to block voicemails.

In this menu, you may see different options depending on your carrier and Android version. Look for an option that allows you to disable or turn off your voicemail service. Tap on it and follow any additional on-screen prompts to confirm your choice.

Step 6: Confirmation

After disabling your voicemail service, you will receive a confirmation message. This message will vary depending on your carrier.

It may say something like “Voicemail service disabled” or “Voicemail turned off”.

Once you see this confirmation message, your voicemail service is successfully blocked! You will no longer receive voicemail messages on your Android device.


  • Re-enabling Voicemail: If you change your mind and want to re-enable your voicemail service in the future, simply repeat the above steps and enable the voicemail option instead of disabling it.
  • Contact Your Carrier: If you are unable to find the voicemail settings or disable the service on your Android device, we recommend reaching out to your mobile carrier for further assistance. They can provide specific instructions based on their network and services.

Congratulations! You have successfully blocked voicemail on your Android device. Now you can enjoy a more peaceful and uninterrupted experience with fewer unwanted interruptions.
