I just arrived in the US from the U.K. And just want to turn off my voicemail asap. But 150 doesn't seem to be working. Help please!

On EE, You don't get charged if someone leaves you a voicemail, only if you listen to it.
This was confirmed here
Though I have to say, it seems @Leanne_T got the voicemail page updated but it seems the worse for it. I wonder why this text was removed, if the above quote is accurate.
If you're abroad you won't be charged if someone leaves you a voicemail - you'll only be charged if you retrieve the message while you're abroad.

This is what I found:
"When you're abroad within the EU you can be left voicemail messages without being charged. However if you travel outside the EU, you will incur call charges when people leave you voicemails."
Unless there has been a change, then it is only in the EU that leaving a voicemail is free, but outside the EU you will be charged.

I have to say I don't understand why the text I quoted was removed, as that was quite clear! It's no wonder everyone is confused when there's conflicting advice.

@Lee_H what's the situation then with iPhone visual voicemail as that doesn't need to 'dial home' to access the voicemail message. The voicemail message is sent directly to the iPhone over the cellular data network (not WIFI though, so as long as a travel data pass or another data roaming add-on is on place, there should be ZERO charges) can you please confirm this is the case please?
