Setting Up Voicemail

The iPhone’s voicemail is fairly simple to set up and use. Open it by going to Phone > Voicemail.

Using the voicemail controls

Your main voicemail screen, red-a.jpg, lets you view all your messages, play your messages, access info on who called and when each message was left, set a greeting message, turn on a speaker while listening to messages, call the number back, and delete the call.
