Whether you’re new to iOS, or just want to pick up some useful tips and tricks, we're here to help. This is iOS Advice. Have you ever accidentally deleted an important voice mail on your iPhone? If you’re with a carrier that supports visual voice mail, you’re in luck. There’s actually a way to restore deleted messages right from your device. If you’d like to learn how to recover deleted voice mail, watch the video or follow the steps below: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dDKOf3fn7gs Step 1: Open the Phone app and navigate to the “Voicemail” tab at the bottom of the screen. Step 2: Scroll to the bottom of the list that contains your current messages, then tap on “Deleted Messages." This option will only be available if you have recently deleted any voice mail. The length of time that deleted messages remain available varies by carrier. Step 3: Here you’ll be able to preview any messages that you have recently deleted. If you’d like to restore a message, make sure it’s selected and then tap on “Undelete.” You can also permanently delete messages in this list by swiping across them and tapping on “Delete.” Alternatively, you can tap on “Clear All” at the bottom of the screen to delete all of the messages in this list. Now that you’ve learned how to recover deleted voice mail, if there’s something else you’d like to see on iOS Advice, please let us know.
