What I want to know is will I get charged if I do not answer an incoming call while I am abroad with Voicemail turned off? I am going to Africa so I want to avoid roaming charges.
I can see that I should switch voice mail off as a must . However if the phone rings I will be able to see who called so I can then call them back using a different phone ( company is paying) or whatsapp. If it is going to cost me c£1.80 a minute not to recieve calls then I will just take the sim out and hope i dont miss any important calls from someone who doesnt know I am away

No, you should not be charged, as you have VM OFF.

Welcome to the community. 🙂
You will only be charged for an incoming call if you answer or it diverts to voicemail.
If you turn off your voicemail, by texting VM OFF to 150, people won't be able to leave you a voicemail.
So, you will be able to see who rang you by the missed call and call them back on your other phone.
Have a brilliant trip. 🙂
