How to Access iPhone Voicemail Remotely

by Kefa Olang

If your iPhone's battery dies or you don't have your phone with you, you can still check your voicemails remotely using another cellphone or landline. Much like listening to voicemails directly from your iPhone, you can perform tasks that include forwarding, saving or deleting messages. Changes made to your voicemail account using another phone also apply when you resume accessing your voicemails on your iPhone.
