I have Nokia lumia 730. It has windows phone 8.1 OS. By mistake one of my contact get's added in VoiceMail. When I call to that number it shows me the name voicemail in dial history. I want to remove this contact from voicemail. How can I remove?


To edit the voicemail number, go to Settings, swipe over to applications and select "phone". Alternatively, open the Phone app, expand the app bar by tapping on "..." and select "settings".

Once there, you can change the voicemail number to something else.

Note that there doesn't currently seem to be any way to delete the voicemail number. If you empty the textbox, the phone will automatically switch to the default voicemail number, which is either set by your carrier or the first one you entered manually. In your case it's probably still your contact's phone number, so currently you'll have to disable the "Use default voicemail number" option and manually set the voicemail number to something else. It can be a fictional/invalid number, or maybe your carrier's actual voicemail number (even if you don't have voicemail service).

  • Thank you for reply. I want to delete the voicemail number. I don't want to change the voicemail number. – Ajay Jan 5 '15 at 8:39
  • Ah, I see what you mean, there seems to be no way to actually remove the voicemail number. I'll update my answer. – Indrek Jan 5 '15 at 8:47
  • Ok. If I remove the contact number from voicemail then which number should I enter instead of that? – Ajay Jan 5 '15 at 8:50
  • Any number you want. I entered my carrier's actual voicemail number (even though I don't use the service), but you can also enter a fictional or invalid number, like "0" (zero), if you want. – Indrek Jan 5 '15 at 8:51
  • I removed existing number and entered 00000000 as voicemail but still it is taking my old voicemail number – Ajay Jan 5 '15 at 8:51
