How to Check Your iPhone Voice Mail From Another Phone

By Alexander Poirier

The voice mail you receive on your Apple iPhone smartphone ends up stored in the carrier's voice mail database for you to access from your iPhone. You can get access to these voice mail messages from a different phone, however, by pressing a specific keypad key when the voice mail recording starts. If you want to check your iPhone voice mail from a different phone, you can do so in a few simple steps.

Step 1

Dial the cell phone number tied to your iPhone. Let the call ring through until your voice mail recording begins to play.

Step 2

Press the * key on the phone's keypad. Type the iPhone's four digit voice mail password with the phone's keypad and press the # key on the phone's keypad. The iPhone's stored voice mail messages will now begin to play in sequential order.

Step 3

Press the 7 key while a message is playing to delete the message. Press the 9 key while a message is playing to save the message. Press the 4 key while a message is playing to replay the message. Press the 5 key while a message is playing to find out the message's date, time and the phone number the message came from.
