How to Empty your Iphone Voice Mail Box

You can listen to your voicemail messages and record a new message from your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. You do not need to delete any voicemail messages to make room for more; the number of stored messages does not affect the amount of memory available on your device.

To get started at the Home screen, tap Phone. Then tap Voicemail. If you have multiple voicemail boxes (such as one for each line), tap the box that contains the message(s) you want to hear or erase. You can also choose All Mailboxes if you want to listen to messages in all your mailboxes at once. The most recent voicemails are played first when you playback several messages in a row.

You can play, pause, and stop the playback at any time by tapping, and. You can also turn up volume or mute your iPhone’s microphone by sliding the Volume Slide control to the right or left. You can also use the Mute button on the iPhone headset if you are using one.

To listen to a message when you are already in your voicemail inbox: Tap a message that has a green bar above it. The green bar indicates that this particular message is new, or still unplayed (some older messages may have a green bar above them). Voicemails that have been played will not have the green bar. To play all messages in order, move through them one at a time until you hear the one you want, and then tap to begin playing it.

iPhone Voicemail Full After Deleting

To return to your voicemail menu when you are already in a message

When you finish listening to all messages, tap at the top of the screen to return to your Voicemail Inbox. You can also press the Home button or touch a different icon on the iPhone’s Home screen if they appear behind the carrier information at the top of your screen.

If there are other new messages waiting for you, a green bar follows each number in your inbox as long as more than one message has yet to be played from that box. If no green bar appears next to any of these numbers, then there is nothing new since you last checked your voicemail.

If you need to change the order of your messages, tap Edit in the upper right corner of your screen. You can then drag and drop the message numbers into the desired order by tapping them with your finger and holding them. When finished, tap Save Changes at the top of the screen or press Home to return to your Voicemail Inbox.

You can playback anyone message and erase it from your iPhone at a time; however, if you want to delete more than one message at a time, first tap Group on Your Own below Play One, Skip One, Record One, or Erase All below Delete Some (depending on which button you are currently viewing). Tap each box that contains messages you want to erase, and then tap Erase Selected.

If you want to record a new voicemail greeting for all your callers to hear when they leave you messages, tap Record New Greeting below Record One. Follow the on-screen instructions. When finished recording your greeting, press the Home button or touch a different icon on the iPhone’s Home screen if they appear behind the carrier information at the top of your screen. Otherwise, tap Save Changes to finish editing. You can listen to your recording by tapping Play New Greeting in the upper right corner of your screen.

You can use Siri to create a voice message by saying something like “Play my voicemail” or “Call Jake.” Siri may ask which number you would like to use. Once you select the appropriate number, Siri will playback your voice message and say if it was successfully sent or not. You can easily record a voice message or call from within another voicemail by tapping Record One. You can then tap Call Back, Send as Text Message (SMS), or Send as Email depending on whether you want to send yourself an email with the recording attached, add it to the body of an existing outgoing SMS text message (note: this only works for messages that have been previously saved as drafts in your Mail application), or place a new call back to the person who left you the original voicemail.

In addition, any time a caller leaves a voicemail while using one of your saved contacts, the contact’s phone number will be automatically added to your address book for future use, and a thumbnail picture of that person (if you have already stored one) will appear next to their name in an incoming call or message. You can also choose whether or not to display this information on individual contact pages by editing their settings within the Contacts application before syncing with iTunes.

Voicemail is most often full because the voicemails you deleted on your phone are still being stored somewhere else. In most cases, those voicemails are still being stored with your carrier. Log into your voicemail on your phone and listen to all of the messages in it, or call it, if you’re having trouble hearing any of them.
