How to Disable Verizon Voicemail

By Kenneth Coppens

Verizon provides mobile and home phone service, both of which have a voicemail feature. Basic voicemail service from Verizon comes at no cost for customers with monthly service. Although voicemail is free, some Verizon users have no need for it. In such cases, Verizon lets customers disable voicemail service at any time.

Step 1

Call Verizon Wireless customer service at 1-800-922-0204. For home phone customer service, call 1-800-VERIZON (1-800-837-4966).

Step 2

Follow the automated operator prompts until you reach a customer service representative. You should only have to press two or three keys until you reach a representative.

Step 3

Tell the representative you want to disable your voicemail service. She will ask a series of questions to confirm your identity. Once the identity is confirmed, the voicemail should be disabled within a minute or two.
