How to Skip a Voicemail Message

Skipping a voicemail message allows you to quickly go through your messages without having to listen to them in their entirety. When you skip a message, your phone will either save it as old, or keep it marked as new, depending on your carrier. Skipping a message simply involves selecting the right key on your phone while listening.

Most carriers use the same key for skipping messages.
