You can't really deactivate voice mail as it's programmed into the plans and can't be removed. You can ask customer service if they can reset it for you and then you can try to "not activate it" but that's about it.

What you can do is change the amount of times your phone will ring before the VM clicks in and it may greatly reduce the # of messages ppl leave if you set it to ring a high number of times. To change the # of rings before voicemail kicks in dial the following:  *61*[Voice Mail Access Number]**[timervalue]#+SEND  where [timervalue] is the interval to wait before forwarding to voicemail (i.e. 5, 10, 15, 20, 25 or 30 seconds)  30 seconds is the maximum time allowed though.
