    Is there a way to send all calls to voicemail but still receive SMS without using the call forwarding feature?
    My carrier is Bell Canada and I get charged for using call forwarding, which is a complete rip off. I was billed $52 for using call forwarding last month.
    I want to be able to be free from calls but still receive text messages.
    Does anyone know if this is possible?

    Will turning off 'mobile network' but leaving 'data services' on work?

    I just tried what I suggested in my original post. Doesn't work.

    Any other suggestions would be appreciated.

    I'm trying to make sense out of this. You don't want to receive calls, yet received so many you had over $50 in forwarding charges? Since you're forwarding them, I presume you want to answer them somewhere. Save the money, and ignore or answer them on the phone.

    Killing mobile service didn't work, because texting is cellular. Maybe a basic understanding of how carrier services work, before determining what is/isn't a ripoff.

    While I can't speak to BB10, I can say that my first OS 4.5 Curve had a wonderful feature called "Do Not Disturb." It automatically sent all calls to voicemail while keeping the cellular network available for outbound calls and data. When I got my BlackBerry 6 Bold, I was very disappointed to find out that this feature had been removed.
