    When it comes right down to it, not everyone utilizes the voicemail feature on his or her iPhone. With that being said, there’s no reason for it to be there if you’re not going to use it, so you might as well get rid of it.

    A new free jailbreak tweak dubbed VoicemailRemoveriOS7 by iOS developer Davide Fresilli will hide the Voicemail tab from the Phone application on iOS 7, as shown above.

    Without the Voicemail tab in the Phone application, the unused clutter is removed from the application and the interface comes off as more simplified. You can enable or disable the tweak on demand from the preferences pane in the Settings application:



    When you disable the tweak, the Voicemail tab will return to the Phone application.

    Since the tweak is aimed at those that don't use the Voicemail feature on their iPhone, those that actually utilize it probably won't want to install this tweak, as it will just create difficulty in getting to your voicemail. On the other hand, even if you use your Voicemail, you might consider installing this tweak just so that nosy people can't go into your Phone application and listen to your voicemail. This tweak can be used as a small security barrier for hiding your Voicemail tab from unwanted ears.

    If you want to give VoicemailRemoveriOS7 a try, it's available for free in Cydia's BigBoss repository.

    Name: VoicemailRemoveriOS7
    Price: FREE
    Version: 0.1-16
    Requirements: iOS 7.0-7.0.4, iPhone
    Repo: BigBoss

    This just became my #1 April Fools joke to play on someone, right after taking a screen shot of my co-worker's desktop and setting it as the wallpaper.
    Hmm...

    Brilliant tweak, Apple doesn't support my carrier in the UK so that button is a waste if space

    Actually, for those that use a third-party for voicemail (e.g. Google Voice) this is a perfectly useful tweak.

    Once the tweak is installed, you can assign voicemail to an Activator gesture within the native phone app, or anywhere else for that matter and retain the ability to access visual voicemail.
