      You could try contacting Sky and ask them to turn the service off. Contact us
      When it has been turned off, if you want the service, use the contact form to ask them to turn it on again.
      This may fix the issue. Most prefer using their own answer machines and find the voicemail a nuisance..

      I've had that! Think I had to get Sky to reset it if memory serves my right!

      i find that running a line test usually clears the issue

      Give Sky Talk a call, it's free anyway. Explain the problem and ask if they can run a test on your line. It may clear the problem but if not removing the feature and replacing it at a later date may be the only alternative. A helpful agent may even offer to call you back to check whether the dial tone is OK before reinstating your voice-mail.

      Contacted sky had them remove voicemail and intermittant tone went

      re activated voicemail and now when you leave a message you do not get the intermittant tone ! ..... They have escalated issue
