Cell phone users for whom checking voicemail is a bane will likely enjoy the visible voicemail system Apple has created for their iPhone. The iPhone allows you to see your voicemails in a list, so you won't have to call in to check them; they are always a few taps away and can be listened to in any order. The process of checking your voicemail on an iPhone is quick and easy.

From the home screen on your phone, locate and tap on the green "Phone" icon. By default, this can be found on the far left of the bottom toolbar.

Tap the "Voicemail" option on the far right of the toolbar. When you have a new voicemail, a red circle with the number of new messages will appear in the upper right hand corner of the voicemail icon.

New messages will appear at the top of the list on your visible voicemail with a blue circle to the left of them to denote that they have not been listened to. Scroll down the list to find older voicemails. You can play a message simply by tapping on it, and there is a "speaker" button in the upper right hand corner of the screen that will enable the speakerphone function.

Call back the person who left you a voicemail or delete messages by first highlighting the message by touching it, and then using the "call back" and "delete" icons under the messages. You can use the slider to rewind or fast forward parts of a message while it is playing.
