Unsupported error also. However it did let me change forwarding to +44 which it lets me do. Ive tested and it works. You get an error tone once the forwarding option kicks in

Hi I am desperate to turn my voicemail off as my mother is incapable of not leaving a message. These steps don't work, "phone" does not come up in the Apps menu under setting.

Help! I am going to have to block my mother's phone if this carries on.
