Voicemail is so over. It’s just more convenient and practical to hang up and shoot a text message, or just call back at another time, isn’t it? We think so, too. The death of voicemail can’t come soon enough.
But if you want to actually stop allowing voicemails on your phone, you have to call up your mobile carrier and get them to disable voicemail on your account altogether. It’s unwieldy, especially if you decide to re-enable at some point (and you have to call them again).
Fortunately, there’s a new free app called No More Voicemail — available on both Android and iOS — which disables the feature without needing to contact your carrier. When it works, incoming phone calls will ring and ring and ring without ever going to voicemail.
It’s a little buggy at the moment, so some calls will simply be disconnected after a time, but that’s not actually too bad of a bug. As long as it prevents the prompting of voicemail, which it does, then it’s doing what it promises to do.
No More Voicemail is pretty easy to set up, too. Once registered, you’re given a number that you dial to disable voicemail. That’s it. If you want to re-enable it, No More Voicemail gives another number to dial.
It currently works on AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, US Cellular, and Verizon.
