To retrieve a deleted voicemail on your iPhone, you can follow these simple steps. Don’t worry, it’s not as complicated as it might seem!

Step 1: Open the Phone app on your iPhone. This app is typically found on the home screen and has an icon that looks like a green phone receiver.

Step 2: Tap on the “Voicemail” tab at the bottom right corner of the screen. This will take you to your voicemail inbox.

Step 3: Scroll through your voicemail messages and locate the one that you want to retrieve. If you have many voicemails, you can use the search bar at the top to quickly find the specific message.

Step 4: Once you have found the deleted voicemail, tap on it to open it. You will see options such as “Call Back,” “Delete,” and “Save.”

Note: If a deleted voicemail is still in your “Deleted Messages” folder, you can skip Step 5 and directly move to Step 6.

Step 5: If you accidentally deleted a voicemail and it’s not in your inbox anymore, don’t panic! You can still find it in the “Deleted Messages” folder.

To access this folder, scroll all the way down in your voicemail inbox until you reach the end. Then tap on “Deleted Messages.”

Step 6: In either case (deleted or not), once you have opened the desired voicemail, tap on “Save” if you wish to keep it permanently.


  • If you want to listen to a voicemail again before deciding whether to save or delete it, simply tap on the play button next to its entry in your voicemail inbox.
  • If you have multiple voicemails to retrieve, you can save time by selecting multiple voicemails at once. Simply tap on the Edit button in the top right corner of your voicemail inbox, select the desired messages, and then choose “Save” to keep them.
  • Remember that deleted voicemails are stored in the “Deleted Messages” folder for a limited time only. After a certain period, they will be permanently deleted and cannot be retrieved.


In conclusion, retrieving a deleted voicemail on your iPhone is a straightforward process. Simply open the Phone app, navigate to the Voicemail tab, find the desired message in your inbox or the Deleted Messages folder, and save it if needed.

Don’t forget to listen to the voicemail before making a decision! With these simple steps and tips, you can easily recover any important or accidentally deleted voicemails on your iPhone.
