If I cannot be reached on my mobile phone, I don't want people to be able to leave a voice mail. How do I deactivate voicemail on the mobile? The phone should ring forever and never ever should it go to voice mail.
One thing might be to call customer service and get them to remove voicemail. However, if that dossn't work, As I understand it, when your phone is busy or not responding, it uses variable call forwarding to send it to the voicemail. See which forwarding services you have and turn them off. https://www.telus.com/en/bc/support/article/call-forward-mobile
One option is to choose the Extended Absence greeting. This will allow you to leave a message to callers, but won’t accept any messages.
I guess you could record a message of a phone ring signal..😇
