Why did I receive a voicemail when Voicemail is disabled on my account?

    As a customer who has opted against voicemail -- I'd much rather a customer get disconnected thinking their call dropped than create a message through an unsupported channel. We don't monitor voicemails, have them turned off, and recently had this occur in my account. I'm lucky I happen to spot them otherwise these customers would have been in the abyss for an unknown amount of time.

    Hi Zendesk - We received a voicemail in our queue today, but do not have Talk set-up nor enabled. We do not wish to receive calls/voicemail at this time. Any ideas?

    Hi Casey,
    I've turned your question into a ticket since this will have some account specific info in my response.

    For anyone else who is curious this usually happens as new trials are given a US number for testing, with $1 trial credit, but you need to complete the onboarding to see the number you have. So while you are in a trial, you usually have an active number on the account, and sometimes robo dialers end up calling the number.
