How To Video: Find your missing iPhone voice mails

1:37 /

If you haven't received voice mail recently and are wondering where all your friends and family have gone, we'll show you a trick to retrieve your messages.

-What's up, guys? Brian Tong here with CNET.com and if you're just like me, which you aren't, you're having problems receiving voicemails on your iPhone lately. Now, the last one I received was about a month ago in July and I can assure you my mom leaves plenty of voicemails for me on my phone. Now, if you suspect your visual voicemail isn't working, dial into your voicemail directly by holding the number 1 on your dial pad and you'll hear a status update. -You have 16 unheard messages. -Now, that's a lot of booty calls you don't wanna miss so let's show you how to retrieve your missing voicemails. Go into your settings, then General, scroll to the bottom to find Reset, and you'll want to select Reset Network Settings. If you have a pass code lock, which you should, enter it in, press the magic button, and your phone will restart. This method can potentially help if your phone is having trouble accessing network data for things like surfing the web and downloading e-mail or retrieving your voicemails. It will also reset all the Wi-Fi networks your phone automatically connects to so you'll have to reenter those passwords as well. If this doesn't work, select the "Reset All Settings" which has also worked for me but you'll have to reenter things like your iTunes password but it will not erase any content on your phone. Now, let's give it a few moments and, voila, there are my voicemails ready for me to listen to one month later. -Hey, Brian. I've been waiting for half an hour. Where are you? I'll be waiting. -I'm Brian Tong with your how-to for retrieving your missing iPhone voicemails. Use it wisely.
