Try Settings->Call Settings->Voicemail. On my Fascinate this pops up with a dialog box where I can enter a new voicemail number immediately. On my EVO (CyanogenMod) I have to go into Settings->Call Settings->Voicemail Settings->Voicemail Number to get the same box, so it's very similar but does take an extra step.

If you don't have the option Matthew Read suggested, you could use a call blocking app. Most of them have an option to block all calls.

Accept the update, it doesn't charge you unless you subscribe to the premium package. Aside from that, you could decompile the apk and remove the push notification for updates.

There are a few apps that can do this for you, or at least some of these things. One I saw on Lifehacker yesterday is Agent. Agent is a combination automation tool and personal assistant that will silence your phone during meetings, remember where you parked, auto-respond to texts and phone calls while you're driving, and more, all so you don't have to. ...

Using tasker you can accomplish this and more fairly easily once you know how to use it. To solve the whole phone ringing while you are in a meeting you have a few options with how to do it in Tasker. You can choose to silence your phone while in meetings, set it to vibrate, block all phone calls (probably not the best choice) or send them all to voicemail. ...

OK, this is indeed a setting which is determined by the carrier. It can be changed (at least on GSM networks, according to this Tech Recipes article), using an MMI code (Man-Machine Interface code). Here's the procedure that worked for me: On your Android phone, go to your Phone app, dial *#61#, and hit the Call button. Android should briefly display ...

By what you describe, this is more likely to be related with the proximity sensor. It is located at the top right corner of your screen, outside of the touch area. If anything is blocking that sensor, the screen goes black. This happens to prevent the users face from touching anything on the screen during a call. What works for me, is either using the ...

It's routed by the carrier so even if your phone is off it will get appropriately routed to Google Voice. With non-android phones you have to type the carrier specific activation code into the keypad and hit send to make the change at the carrier level. The Google Voice Android App takes care of this for you with a simple toggle in the settings menu.

Turn the ringer volume to zero/set to not even vibrate. This is slightly facetious answer, as the user will still hear the ring, and have to wait for Voice Mail to pick up, so it is probably not the ideal solution; but it's what I do when I'm in a movie or church or something.

This looks like it could be a known, or at least reported, issue, depending on the device you are using. A few users report that on some carriers (looks like mostly in Canada) they have the exact issue with the Desire Z, running CyanogenMod.

It could be your number being "blacklisted" on your wife's phone. There are a lot of apps on the playstore offering this feature, and some Android versions can do so on their own (just configure the contact in your contacts list correspondingly). So here's what you could do: check with your SIM card placed in some other phone (if that option exists; at ...

Settings -> Call -> Call Forwarding -> Always Forward -> Your voicemail number Every phone I've ever seen has that option.

I had the same issue. You will have to change your phone notification settings. Go to "settings," then "call", then "phone settings" under "other call settings." Scroll all the way to the bottom of the call setting screen and select "phone notification preview" (To show caller ID for missed calls and voicemails on locked screen and status bar). Most ...

If you are using your Google Voice for another purpose, such as a SIP service for an ObiHai appliance or as a VOIP system on your PC, you will encounter problems with Voicemail not picking up. You will need to disable Google Voicemail on your phone, create a new Google Voice account, with a new number, and add your Android phone to that account. Then select ...

Long-press on the notification and you should get a little "app info" box. Hit that, then hit "force stop". If the app info box doesn't appear, go into Settings -> Application Manager -> All, find the Phone app, and force stop it. That should send the notification packing. If it comes back, the problem is T-Mobile sending out erroneous "You have ...

You can install and configure T-Mobile's own Visual Voicemail app. You will get notified about your voicemails through it instead of the system's Phone/Dialer app, with the ability to dismiss that notification. As a bonus, you can also listen to and delete your voicemails without having to dial in and waste prepaid minutes. Be aware that this app needs to ...

Usually on android phones this is a carrier supplied feature. You can get some visual voicemail app from the play store, or you can move your voicemail from the carrier's system to Google Voice, which provides it.

Try if any of these apps work for you. It would depend on your phone, as android has limited support for total offline answering machine capabilities due to technical barriers. See this thread on XDA. If your phone isn't compatible, you might have the following issues: Not be able to record calls Record the conversation at only one end Very low sound ...

I am in the same boat as you. Since I found no way to actually disable voicemail notifications on my Nexus 5, I instead configured the longest possible voicemail greeting the T-Mobile system would allow, which consists of complete silence for 3 minutes. I have not gotten a single voicemail notification since.

Try leaving yourself voicemail, then listening to it, then deleting it. (Sounds like something I had to do a few years ago)

I'm afraid there isn't as calls aren't recorded by default or even stored temporarily. Sorry this didn't add any more information than Izzy offered in the comment just thought it should be put as the answer. If you're in a similar situation in the future or need to record a call there are plenty of apps available that will let you do that.

Here is the google play link for Google Voice, if that's what you have been looking for. Total offline answering machine functionality is not possible due to androids technical barriers. See this thread on XDA. You can use apps like YouMail Visual Voicemail which sounds promising. If not, you can easily find many alternatives after a quick search on google ...

No, this isn't feasable. I take it you now have an Israel cell phone now, and you are trying to get Youmail on that. Youmail is a U.S. based service, so even if you got forwarding to work for voicemail, it would eat up into your balance like nothing else. It would be the same as you calling the U.S. based number every time someone left a voicemail; I'm ...

You have to actually setup your voicemail with TMobile as well as on your phone. You simply ring 222 from the phone. Here is a detailed description: http://forums.t-mobile.co.uk/help-and-support/index?page=home&cat=VOICEMAIL

If you use Google Voice, there is a simple "Do Not Disturb" option.

Settings -> Wireless and network -> Mobile networks or Settings -> Wireless Controls -> Mobile Network Settings -> Mode of Operation There should be a "Data only", "EVDO only", or similar option in there, depending on your phone. My T-Mobile Vibrant does not have this option, for example, but the HTC Hero does. Another possibility is: ...

You could use Tasker to handle the proximity thing. Additionally have you tried clicking the power button?
