How to activate/deactivate Voicemail for your Shaw home phone

To deactivate Voicemail for your Shaw Home Phone:

  1. Visit the My Shaw at and log in using your My Shaw username and password
  2. Select Phone
  3. Under Voicemail Settings, select Voicemail on/off
    Shaw Voicemail Settings On
  4. Under the Voicemail tab, below the heading Manage your Voicemail, press the button Voicemail On/Off Toggle Button to toggle the switch to OFF


Voicemail will then be deactivated and you will not receive any new messages. The phone will continue to ring until you answer the call instead of forwarding to a Voicemail greeting. Deactivating will not erase your personalized greeting or messages currently in your Voicemail Inbox.
