4. Once you’re done, select “Done” at the top right corner of the screen to save your changes and get started with using your voicemail service!

You can now start sending and receiving messages, just like sending a text message or email! You can also listen to your voicemails by tapping on the Voicemail tab on the phone app, then selecting and holding down the 1 key if prompted, and entering in your password when asked. To delete a message, simply swipe left on it while listening to it, then select “Delete” when prompted.

To save time in future calls, you can also set up call forwarding so that any calls that come in while you’re unavailable can be sent directly to your voicemail inbox without ringing through first. To do this, open Settings > Phone > Call Forwarding > toggle “Forward All Calls” switch on > enter the phone number for your voice mailbox (this should be available from your service provider).

We hope this guide has helped you set up voicemail on your iPhone XR easily and quickly! Now you can rest assured that all important messages are being stored safely!
