Have you accidentally deleted an important voicemail on your iPhone and need to recover it? Don’t worry, there are a few methods you can try to retrieve those precious messages. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the steps to recover deleted voicemails on your iPhone.

Method 1: Check Recently Deleted Folder

If you have deleted a voicemail within the last 30 days, it might still be in the “Recently Deleted” folder on your iPhone. Follow these steps to check:

  • Step 1: Open the Phone app on your iPhone.
  • Step 2: Tap on the “Voicemail” tab at the bottom right corner of the screen.
  • Step 3: Scroll down and locate the “Deleted Messages” section.
  • Step 4: Tap on “Deleted Messages” to view all recently deleted voicemails.
  • Step 5: Find the voicemail you want to recover and tap on it.
  • Step 6: Tap on “Undelete” to restore the voicemail back to your inbox.

Method 2: Restore from iTunes Backup

If your voicemail was not in the “Recently Deleted” folder or if more than 30 days have passed since deletion, you can try restoring your iPhone from an iTunes backup. Here’s how:

  • Step 1: Connect your iPhone to a computer with iTunes installed using a USB cable.
  • Step 2: Launch iTunes and select your iPhone from the device list.
  • Step 3: Click on the “Restore Backup” option.
  • Step 4: Choose a backup that contains the voicemail you want to recover.
  • Step 5: Click on “Restore” and wait for the process to complete.

Method 3: Use a Third-Party Data Recovery Tool

If the above methods didn’t work or if you don’t have an iTunes backup, you can try using a third-party data recovery tool to retrieve your deleted voicemails. Follow these steps:

  • Step 1: Download and install a reputable iPhone data recovery software on your computer.
  • Step 2: Connect your iPhone to the computer using a USB cable.
  • Step 3: Launch the data recovery software and follow the on-screen instructions to scan your device for deleted voicemails.
  • Step 4: Once the scan is complete, preview and select the deleted voicemails you want to recover.
  • Step 5: Click on the “Recover” button to restore the selected voicemails back to your iPhone or save them to your computer.


In order to increase your chances of successful recovery, it’s recommended to perform these methods as soon as possible after deleting a voicemail. The longer you wait, the higher the possibility of permanent data loss as new content may overwrite the deleted voicemail.

With these methods, you should be able to recover your deleted voicemails on your iPhone. Remember to regularly back up your device to prevent future data loss and always double-check before deleting any important voicemails. Happy recovering!
