As Skinny doesn't have any Ozzy roaming package setup  when I go there  for two weeks I want to Call FWD All to voicemail  but it looks like I can't.   I want to leave a message saying that if it's an urgent call send me a text and I'll call them back as it's cheaper than taking a call..

Is this possble ??

I asked Skinny last year in May and they said it wasn't possible - not sure about now though.

Thanx.  I tried but I get a network error message.   Wonder I'll I'll be charged for the call if I swipe and reject the call to voicemail??

If you call 789 then you can setup your Answer Service instead of Voicemail.  This will read an announcement whenever people go to voicemail rather than allowing them to leave a message.  You can set this to say you are overseas and please send a text.

Any unanswered call will automatically divert to Voicemail so then you just need to decline / not answer and calls will be diverted.

If Android you could get an app that auto-rejects all calls instantly. Then setup a voicemail recording. Otherwise yeah change networks or wait and see if Skinny ever sets up user configurable call forwarding.

Wouldn't you still pay the roaming charge for that call to be rejected.
