Voice mail is often considered an essential part of phone service. However, you might want to disable your voice mail occasionally, such as while traveling. Subscribers to Rogers Communications, one of the leading wireless networks in Canada, can disable their voice mail by following a few simple steps.
Wait for the tone that will confirm your voice mail is disabled.
Hang up. Callers will now hear a busy signal if they call you while you are on the phone.
Dial "*90" and wait for the confirmation tone to enable voice mail when you wish to allow callers to leave messages again.
Ringing Instead of Voice Mail
Wait for the confirmation tone.
Hang up. Callers will now hear ringing instead of being directed to voice mail.
Dial "*92" and wait for the confirmation tone to enable your voice mail.
Rogers also allows you to determine how many times the phone will ring before voice mail picks up.
