If you reject or cannot accept a call, the caller hears a recorded announcement and can leave a voicemail message for you. On the iPhone, Visual Voicemail lets you view a list of your messages. From this list, you can select which messages you want to listen to or delete.
To activate Visual Voicemail on your iPhone, text "VVM on» to 935 (there will be no charge). To deactivate it, text «VVM off» to 935.
