The iPhone is a multifaceted smart phone that enables you to browse the World Wide Web, play music and videos and take pictures, plus it also features all the qualities of a cell phone such as being able to make and receive calls, send text messages and receive voice mails. The storage capacity of an iPhone can range from 8vGB to 32vGB. This allows for voicemails to be stored on your iPhone even after you have deleted them. Consequently, it is possible to retrieve old voice mails from your iPhone as long as you haven't permanently deleted them from the device.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Press the "Home Button" on your iPhone and slide the arrow to the right to unlock it.

  2. 2

    Tap the "Phone" button on your iPhone's screen and then tap the "Voicemail" option displayed on the bottom-right corner of the screen.

  3. 3

    Scroll to the bottom of the screen and tap on the "Deleted Messages" option. All your deleted old voicemails are stored here when you choose to delete them. The number of voice mails stored in the Deleted Messages section of your phone will depend on the storage capacity of your iPhone.

  4. 4

    Browse through the list of old voice mails stored in the Deleted Messages screen and find the old voice mail you are looking for by looking for it by phone number, date or time. Tap the old voice mail you want to retrieve, and when highlighted, tap the "Undelete" tab to undelete the voice mail. Keep in mind that once you have cleared old voice mails from the Deleted Messages screen, you will not be able to retrieve them.
