Archive Voicemail Messages

Issue/Question

How do I save/archive voicemail messages I received on my iPhone so that I can keep them forever?

Environment

  • Apple iPhone (iOS 9 and later)

Resolution

Method 1

If you only need to save a few voicemails, you may find it easiest to simply send them by email to yourself and then save them to your computer.

  1. Open the Phone app.
  2. Tap Voicemail on the toolbar.
  3. Tap the message you would like to save.
  4. Tap the Share button.
  5. Tap Mail.

The voice message is now attached to a draft email. You may address this email to yourself or others just as you would any other message.

Method 2

Voicemail messages are also saved in iOS back-ups, however, messages will not be readily accessible unless the entire back-up is restored to the device. To learn how to back-up your iPhone, visit Apple's knowledge base article How to back up your devices using iCloud or iTunes.
