Since Windows Phone 8.1, my voicemail alert is the same as my incoming call ringtone.
I, quite, don't like that.
I don't remember what it was, in 8.0, but it wasn't that.
I'm guessing that it changed with the Action Center addition.
Is there a way to turn off the voicemail ringtone (or change it)?

Interesting. On my 1520, I have both choices in settings. I wish I could have helped you more.
Just making sure though...whenever I go into settings, I have a "Ringtones and Sounds" section and a "Notifications and Actions" section. The only way that I can change my ringtone is to go into the "Ringtones and Sounds" section. Voicemail notifications are changed in the "Notifications and Actions" section in the sub-section labeled "Phone". At lest that's how mine works....maybe mine is malfunctioning. ha ha

Thanks for the quick reply.
I don't have a separate voicemail notification option, though.
It's just the phone ringtone.

Go to the 'Ringtones + sounds' section in settings and set your desired phone ringtone. Then go to 'notifications + actions' section and click 'phone' and select your desired notification sound for voicemail alerts.

It's confusing because you think you're selecting a phone ringtone for the same thing but in 2 different places. I was the same

There is a phone ringtone, but nothing that says voicemail.

Yeah that's right (that's the confusing part) that IS the voicemail tone in your screenshot. Your actual phone ringtone is selected in 'ringtones + sounds'
