How to Save Voicemails on iPhone: Two Easy Methods

Whether you want to keep a handy message or document precious periods in your relationship, people have different reasons for wanting to keep their voicemails longer than the stipulated seven days for each.

If you’re an iPhone user and want to save your voicemails permanently, you’re at the right place. You can easily save voicemails on your iPhone as a memo and even on your computer for reference purposes. Read on below to find out how to go about it. 


How to Save a Voicemail Permanently on Your iPhone

Voicemails are saved on an iPhone via Visual Voicemail, but not all carriers support it. Other than top guns such as Verizon and AT&T, you need to visit your network provider support page to ascertain if they support Visual Voicemail.

You’re good to go with that out of the way, provided you’re on iOS 9 or later.

Save Voicemails on Your iPhone as a Voice Memo or Note

With voicemails lasting no longer than seven days on your iPhone, saving them as a note or Voice Memo is a no-brainer. To do this,

  1. Open the Phone app and go to voicemail
  2. Tap the voicemail you intend to save
  3. Tap the Share button in the upper-right corner of the selected voicemail page
  4. A myriad of recipient apps will pop up. Select Voice Memos or Notes from the options.

That’s it! The voicemail has been saved, and you can access it from the Voice Memo or Notes app anytime. However, if your carrier doesn’t support Visual Voicemail, you can still access and save your voicemail with the following method.

Save Voicemails on Your iPhone without Visual Voicemail

iExplorer is always at your beck and call if you cannot use Visual Voicemail because of your carrier. iExplorer is an app that helps save a host of files on your device, including your call history and text messages. Although it’s a paid app, you can always use the demo period to test the waters.

I recommend backing up your iPhone before attempting this method so that the app can uncover lost or missing files from the backup file. With that out of the way, follow the procedures below:

  1. Download iExplorer and install it on your PC.
  2. Connect your iPhone to your PC via a lightning cable.
  3. With iExplorer open, you should see your iPhone on the left pane of the app’s window. 
  4. Next, click on your iPhone and select Data > Voicemail on the right pane. Alternatively, when you click on your iPhone, use the drop-down beside it to select Backup > Voicemail.
  5. Now, your iPhone’s voicemails should load up on the screen, with each having extra details of the contact, call duration, and date. Select the voicemails you intend to save and click the Export button at the bottom of the screen to save them.

Wrapping up

There you have it! Saving your iPhone’s voicemails never gets easier with the methods above. Thankfully, you can even save your voicemails on the cloud via a social media app such as Messenger or Instagram. Click on Messenger or Instagram when you get to step 4 of the first method and send it to one of your friends. 

Your voicemail is permanently saved on the social media app, allowing you to access it from any device.
