Some people think that voicemail is yesterday's news with the explosion of text messaging. However, voice mail is still an important communication tool. Voice mail provides many opportunities for efficiency, such as allowing people to share information whether the other party was currently available or not, and avoid "phone tag".

Therefore, voicemail still boasts a wide fan base. Maybe you are one of them. Have you ever accidentally deleted an important voice mail on your iPhone? Since the iPhone will periodically clear deleted voicemails and if you did not download it before, you had better start to retrieve them as soon as possible.

FonePaw iPhone Data Recovery provides three solutions for you to retrieve voicemail on iPhone: directly retrieve deleted voicemail from iPhone 7/SE/6s/6/5s, extract voicemail messages from iTunes backup or restore voicemail from iCloud. This tool plays a role not only in retrieving voicemail messages, but also on other data like pictures, SMS, contacts, notes, etc. on your iPhone 7/SE/6s/6s Plus/6/6 Plus.

Step 3: Preview and regain

After scanning, all your iPhone data will be listed organized. You can preview them one after another, which includes contacts, videos, music, photos, text messages, calendars, bookmarks, notes, and so on. However, choose "Voicemail" only to preview this specific item can help to save time. Since you cannot hear your voicemails when previewing, you'd better mark all of them down to recover.

Step 4: Retrieve your voicemail on iPhone

At last, navigate to click "Recover" button at the right corner of the bottom to retrieve voicemails.

And the second way is "Recover from iTunes Backup Files" which allows you to restore deleted voicemail via iTunes. Just choose the "Recover from iTunes Backup File" option and select a backup file that you want to extract and click "Start Scan". Finally, you can choose "Voicemail" on the left sidebar to preview them. But I do not recommend you to preview them because you may be unable to recognize them from their file names, so select all those voicemails through the button of "Recover". So easy as "Recover from iCloud Backup File" option is!

FonePaw iPhone Data Recovery is a reliable tool that provides you useful solutions to retrieve voicemails on iPhone. It supports extracting iPhone data from iTunes or iCloud, which is quite convenient for those who are in the habit of backing up with iTunes or iCloud. What makes it really distinguish is that it allows you to recover deleted iPhone files without any backup.
