How to Retrieve Deleted Voicemail from iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch
“I had a bunch of important official voicemails in my iPhone but I accidentally deleted them. Can someone please tell me how to retrieve deleted voicemails?”
If you’ve taken the pain to download and save your voicemails in your iPhone, I’m sure they must be really valuable. However, it is quite easy to lose valuable data from your iPhones, and in this case you would naturally wonder how to retrieve deleted voicemails.
Voicemails are generally held by phone companies and kept in their servers for a fixed period of time, after which they are deleted. After this your voicemail becomes impossible to recover.
However, some people pay for manageable voicemail so it can be saved to their iPhones. In this case the voicemails are downloaded and kept in your iPhone, so if you lose them, you can actually recover deleted voicemail.
This article will describe all the different methods you could use to retrieve voicemail.

Dr.Fone - Data Recovery (iOS) is a software that has been rolled out by Wondershare, which has been received worldwide acclaim and has received acknowledgment from Forbes magazine several times. As such it is a completely reliable software with which you can gain access to all your deleted voicemails. This software will provide you with a gallery of all your current and deleted voicemails and you can simply select the ones you want to restore, no hassles at all!

This method is ideal for those who don’t have a backup to the voicemail in either iCloud or iTunes. This process scans your iOS device and then displays all your deleted voicemail in a gallery.
Step 1. Connect iPhone to computer.
Access Dr.Fone on your computer and choose Recover from the features. Connect iPhone to computer via cable.
Step 2. Recover from iOS Device.
You’ll find three recovery options, choose ‘Recover from iOS Device.’
Step 3. File Type.
You’ll get a catalogue of all the different types of files you can recover. Choose ‘Voicemail’ and then click on ‘Start Scan.’
Step 4. Retrieve deleted voicemail.
Finally, you can just wait as the scan completes. You’ll then be able to view all your deleted voicemails in a gallery. Select the ones which you want to restore, and then click on “Restore to Computer.”
If you think you have the voicemails you need in your iCloud backup, you can go for this method. You might be wondering, “why not retrieve it directly from iCloud?” That’s because iCloud doesn’t allow you to individually access and restore files, so if you download the iCloud backup to your iPhone, you’ll lose all your present data. Using Dr.Fone as a medium to access your iCloud backup ensures that you can select only the voicemails you want to restore, and not everything else.
Step 1. Recover from iCloud backup files.
When faced with the recovery options, choose “Recover from iCloud backup files.” Enter you iCloud details.
Step 2. Choose the backup you need.
Choose the iCloud backup you want to go through and then click on ‘download.’ This process may take some time depending on your internet speed and file size. After the download, you can hit ‘Scan.’
Step 3. Retrieve deleted voicemail.
On the left hand panel, you’ll find a list of categories. Select ‘Voicemail.’ Then go through the entire gallery and select the voicemails you want to retrieve individually, and then click on ‘Recover to Computer.’
If you’re someone who prefers to maintain their backups in iTunes then you’re in luck because Dr.Fone also serves as a great iTunes backup extractor. However, the problem with iTunes backup files is the same as that of iCloud, you can’t view them individually and recovering a backup means losing all your present data. So you can use Dr.Fone as a medium to access all the data in the iTunes backup files, and then selectively restore them.
Step 1. Recover from iTunes Backup File.
Amongst the three recovery options, choose “Recover from iTunes Backup file.”
Step 2. Select the backup you want to access.
Go through the file size of all the backup files and their ‘latest backup date’ to determine which is the one you want to access. After you select the backup file, you can click ‘Start Scan’, and you can then delete iPhone backups if you want.
Step 3. Retrieve deleted voicemail.
The final step is the same as the previous methods. You select the category ‘Voicemail’ and then go through the gallery, choose the voicemails you want to retrieve, and click “Recover to Computer.”
So you can see that with these methods you can retrieve all deleted voicemails. First you should definitely see if you can retrieve them directly from the iPhone itself. However, if they have been permanently deleted, then you’ll have to use Dr.Fone, and you can use any of the three methods based on whatever suits you best.
