Galaxy S7 Edge prevent voicemail

I have a Galaxy S7 Edge SM-G935A and I want to prevent blocked numbers from leaving voicemail.

I have added these numbers to the block calls list but it still allows them to leave a voicemail

How can I do this?

You'd have to talk to the carrier since VM is handled on their end. There are a few who do permanently block numbers, but I, of course, it's not free, and generally not part of the regular plan.

Defeats the whole purpose of a block number list if it still allows voicemail

That's the way mobile voicemail works. It's always been that way.

Isn't there an app of some kind to provide this type of feature ?

Nope. Calls go through the carrier network and then are routed to your phone based on the SIM or IMEI over the cell towers. If the call can't make a connection at the phone (either by not being online or by the phone blocking) it's then routed to VM. Any blocking of VM for individual numbers must happen on the carrier's network

There's 3rd party apps that may do as you wish, I use Calls Blacklist from the play store
