Step 1: Accessing the Voicemail

To begin, open the Phone app on your iPhone and locate the Voicemail tab at the bottom right corner of the screen. Tap on it to access your voicemail messages.

Once you have selected the voicemail message, you will see several options at the bottom of the screen. Look for the option that says “Share” and tap on it.

Enter the recipient’s name or phone number in the “To” field and add any additional text if desired. Finally, tap send to forward your voicemail via Messages.

Option 2: Forward via Mail

If you prefer to forward the voicemail via email, select this option from the sharing menu. A new email window will open with an audio file attachment of your forwarded voicemail.

Option 3: Forward to iCloud Drive

If you want to save the voicemail as a file and forward it later using any app that supports file sharing, select this option. You will be prompted to choose a location in your iCloud Drive to save the voicemail file. Once saved, you can access it from any device connected to your iCloud account and share it using various apps.

Step 4: Confirming the Forward

After selecting your preferred forwarding option and entering the necessary details, tap on the “Send” or “Forward” button (depending on the chosen method). Your iPhone will process the request and display a confirmation message once the voicemail has been successfully forwarded.

Congratulations! You have now learned how to forward voicemail on your iPhone. Whether you chose to forward it via Messages, email, or save it as a file in iCloud Drive, you can easily share important or entertaining voicemails with others.

Remember that forwarding voicemails may use cellular data or require an active internet connection if sent via Messages or email. It’s always a good idea to double-check your network connection before forwarding any voicemails.
