    Switched from AT$T to StraighTalk to save a few bucks and StraighTalk doesn't support Visual Voice mail. How can I turn off or disable Visual Voice mail on my Lumia 1520? Thanks!!

    If you like VVM you will need to make a change...

    Probably there is a VVM App from AT&T you could uninstall.

    Then on a PC browser sign up for YouMail. On your phone get the ISeeVM App. Between the two they will get you all configured. It is the best VVM system I've ever used and I am way happy with it. I just moved off T-Mo to ST and the switch to YouMail was pretty easy and well worth it. It is very feature rich, including greeting my callers by name if they appear in my contacts and giving me readable transcripts inside the App.

    I am having a slightly different issue. I am on AT&T and want to disable VVM and just dial in each time I get a voicemail notification. VMM seems too unreliable and doesn't work without a data connection. I want to be able to more easily access my voicemail when I am without data.

    If anyone here on the forums knows of a way to turn it off that would be great.

    Thanks

    Put your sim in a different phone and access vm from it. then put it back in the original phone. Cancel every time it pops up asking for your vm password.

    I already knew that much. Having to click cancel is quite annoying. Wish there was a way to actually disable it.

    You could try calling customer support 611 and see if they can un-provision it.

    Not a bad idea. Might have to do that.

    Did you ever find a solution? I had AT&T disable voicemail altogether, so there's no voicemail to connect to, but the phone asks for the password every time I open the phone app now. It's super annoying. I don't want this phone to have a voice mailbox, so setting up VVM again is not the solution.

    Can't you just go to SETTINGS -> APPLICATIONS -> PHONE and turn off Visual Voicemail?
