I recently returned from a trip to Europe. I deactivated my data while I was there to avoid any additional bills and did not purchase any additional coverage since I was happy to rely on WiFi for the duration of the trip and had no plans to use my phone for calling.
However, I did receive a phone call that went to voicemail when I didn't answer. I knew that checking voicemail would involve fees, so I just left it there. But I could not find a way to get rid of the voicemail notification and unfortunately, it was accidentally selected several times when I flipped through notifications or put it my pocket. This has left me with a bunch of oversea phone call fees. It looks like they round up too because I hung up within a second or two of hitting the button several times and yet each time apparently cost me $1.50. I recognize that it is my fault but it was really frustrating because it didn't seem like there was anything I could do about it. Is there a way of avoiding this in the future? How can I get rid of a voicemail message without actually checking the voicemail?
I have a Moto X Play.
