Are you tired of dealing with voicemail on your iPhone? Do you find it frustrating to listen to messages and navigate through the voicemail system?

Well, you’re in luck! In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process of disabling voicemail on your iPhone. Let’s get started!

Step 1: Open the Phone App

To begin, locate and tap on the “Phone” app icon on your iPhone’s home screen. This will open the phone application, which allows you to manage various calling features, including voicemail.

Step 2: Access Voicemail Settings

Once you have opened the Phone app, look for the “Voicemail” icon at the bottom right corner of the screen and tap on it. This will take you to the Voicemail menu.

Step 3: Disable Voicemail

In the Voicemail menu, you will see a list of options related to managing your voicemail. Scroll down until you find an option called “Disable” or “Turn Off.” Tap on this option to disable your voicemail.


If you don’t see a specific disable option, look for any settings related to voicemail and turn them off. The wording may vary depending on your iPhone model and iOS version.

Step 4: Confirm Your Choice

After tapping on the disable option, a confirmation prompt will appear asking if you are sure about disabling voicemail. Read through the prompt carefully and select “Disable” or “Turn Off” again to confirm your choice.

Step 5: Verify Voicemail Deactivation

To ensure that voicemail has been successfully disabled, call your own phone number from another device or ask a friend to call you. If the call ends without going to voicemail, it means that your voicemail has been disabled.

Step 6: Re-enable Voicemail (Optional)

If you ever change your mind and want to re-enable voicemail on your iPhone, you can follow the same steps mentioned above and look for an option to enable or turn on voicemail. Keep in mind that the wording may differ depending on your device and iOS version.


Disabling voicemail on your iPhone can be a great way to simplify your phone experience and avoid the hassle of managing messages. By following the steps outlined in this tutorial, you can easily disable voicemail and regain control over your phone’s calling features. Remember, if you ever need to re-enable voicemail, it’s just a few taps away!
