Deleting voicemail from hang-up

Is there a way to write a rule or something that will automatically delete hang-up voicemails?  Some of the spam calls that come in actually get to VM somehow and then leave a 7-10 second VM with nothing on them.  Of course, I have to go through the process of deleting those to get to any real VM.  I would prefer to set a rule, if possible, to get rid of these.

Hello mturnb8339, we understand unwanted calls and text message can be a nuisance.

 

As our Ace stated, That would not be a feature for Voicemail. However, learn how to block unwanted calls and text messages using your wireless phone and apps.

 

To find out if your phone has a built-in feature to block calls and text messages:

  1. Go to Device Support and select your phone.
  2. Go to search box at the beginning of the page and search by typing block.
  3. Select the article from the seatch results. If you don't see steps to take for your phone, contact the company that made y our device for mote help, or try these options.

In addition to blocking fraud and spam calls, with AT&T ActiveArmorSM mobile security, you can add numbers to your personal block list. The numbers on your personal block list will remain permanently blocked until you remove them from the list. Get more details about AT&T ActiveArmor mobile security.

 

Hope this helps you out!

There's no way to write a rule, you would have to block the calls entirely.

Thanks for the feedback.  That is unfortunate because I can't block all of those calls.  I know that practically anything that comes from the area code where I originally got my phone is a spam call to I just swipe left on the call but some of them still end up on VM.  Oh well, we can dream of a world where you can do things like that for all these annoying calls.
