If you're an iPhone user, you may have noticed that your phone stores voice messages from your contacts. But if you have trouble finding them, don't worry – we've got you covered! In this blog post, we'll explain how to find your stored voice messages on an iPhone.

First of all, if you're using an iPhone running iOS 12 or later, all of your saved voice messages will be stored in the Messages app. To access them, simply open the app and tap on the “Voicemails” tab at the bottom of the screen. From there, you can view a list of all of your saved voice messages.

For iPhone users running iOS 11 or earlier, any saed voice messages will be stored in the Voice Memos app instead. To access these messages, simply open the Voice Memos app and select “New Voicemail” from the menu at the bottom of the screen. You can then view a list of all of your saved voicemails.

If you're using an Android phone, you can usually access any saved voicemails by tapping on the “New Voicemail” notification. From there, enter your PIN or passcode to listen to your voicemail. Alternatively, if your phone service has an online area for voicemail storage, you can log in and access them from there as well.

Finally, if you want to save any of these voice messages for posterity or other reasons (e.g., legal proceedings), it is possible to do so on both iOS and Android devices. On an iPhone running iOS 12 or later, open up a message and tap on the “Share” button at the top riht corner of the screen to save it as a file to your device or a cloud storage service such as iCloud Drive or Dropbox. For Android phones, simply open up a message and select “Save” (or similar option) from within the app; then select where you want to store it (e.g., device storage or cloud storage).

We hope this blog post has been helpful in explaining how to find and save voice messages on both iOS and Android devices!
