How do I check my voicemail on iPhone

In the Telephone application you can view the list of your Visual Voicemail messages (available from some operators). You can play or delete any message without having to listen to all messages. The badge on the voicemail icon indicates the number of unheard messages.

The voicemail transcription function (only available in selected regions) displays the content of the voicemail message as text. Its availability is limited to messages in English received on an iPhone with iOS 10 or later. Operation of the function depends primarily on the quality of the recorded sound.

If you cannot configure the Visual Voicemail service, contact your operator to make sure your plan supports this feature. As we have already mentioned, this service is not available to everyone. What else can you do? Make sure you have the latest version of iOS. Check for the availability of the operator package update: select Settings then General and This device. If an upgrade is available, a message will appear asking you to upgrade. If you have more than one cellular network plan on your iPhone, try switching to the other plan. Call the first number and leave a message for yourself. Check the network setting, you can also reset it to make sure everything works as it should.

How do you turn off voicemail

It all depends on your operator. Usually, enter the appropriate sequence of numbers preceded by #. Sometimes it is necessary to log into your account on the operator’s website to make changes to your phone number there. Unfortunately, you cannot turn off voicemail from an iPhone via any application.
