If I have data only plan and I will load some amount in wallet for voice call, but I don't want to receive any messages. Is it possible to disable message reception?

If you don't want to receive any voice mail you can disable it by using this forwarding guide https://fizz.ca/en/faq/how-do-i-set-up-call-forwarding
.
Look for Deactivate functions example #61#

I should have said "Action" instead : https://fizz.ca/en/faq/how-do-i-set-up-call-forwarding

Thanks.. But I am asking about SMS messages? Can we individually deactivate voice call or SMS?

Sorry I misunderstood, I thought you meant voice mail message.

I'm not aware of any Fizz method to prevent incoming sms.

If you have a android phone you can try this to see (your own risks):

  • setttings
  • app & notifications
  • app permissions
  • sms : you can disable sms app from sms permission -- I'm not sure about the consequence of this setting !

You know incoming SMS is always free. If there is a way to disable SMS notification, it's easier than finding a way to disable SMS. I know Fido can disable SMS so Fizz should be able too, but it's kind of very hard to find someone in Fizz know how to do it.
