Every one has done it at least once. You listen to a phone message and, either you don’t think you’ll need to listen to it again, or you accidentally hit the delete button and you’ve lost the message forever. Or, maybe not.
Apple must have known that we’d all be a bunch of delete-happy maniacs that have message-erasing remorse at some point in our lives. The good news is that there is a way to undelete and recover voicemails, and we’re going to tell you how.
I just want to take a moment to remind our faithful readers that some of the how-to guides and tutorials that we write are intended for new iOS users. We know that a lot of you tech-savvy iPhone owners already know how to undelete Voicemail messages. This tutorial is for our new iOS-owning readers who may not have the guts to ask, for fear of being shunned by others…
So, you’ve just accidentally deleted a Voicemail on your iPhone. Don’t worry, you can still save your job, or your relationship, or whatever that important message can do for you.
