Beeping before dial-tone



I'm hoping that someone can tell me how to disable the beeping (alerting me of a voicemail) before the dialtone? I don't need my phone to alert me this way, and it confuses vistors to our home when the pick up the line.


Many Thanks

Re: Beeping before dial-tone

Not sure if you can do that unless you disable voice mail.....


Never heard of anyone wanting to disable the studder dial-tone other than listening to all your voice mail.  Stop using VZ voice mail and use your own answering machine.....

Re: Beeping before dial-tone

I would like to diable VZ voice mail and use my Google Voice voicemail instead but I can't seem to get it to work. Any ideas? Google wasn't helpful.
