How do I change my voicemail on my iPhone 12?

Answered by Michael Wilson

To change your voicemail greeting on your iPhone 12, you can follow these steps:

1. Open the Phone app on your iPhone 12. It is the green icon with a white telephone receiver.

2. Tap on the “Voicemail” tab located at the bottom right corner of the screen. This will take you to your voicemail inbox.

3. At the top right corner of the voicemail inbox screen, you will see a button labeled “Greeting.” Tap on it to proceed.

4. On the next screen, you will see two options: “Custom” and “Default.” The “Default” option will play a pre-recorded greeting, while the “Custom” option allows you to record your own personalized voicemail greeting. Tap on “Custom” to continue.

5. Now you will see the recording screen. Here, you can tap the red record button to start recording your voicemail greeting. It’s important to note that you have a time limit of about 30 seconds for your greeting, so keep it concise and to the point.

6. Once you are done recording your voicemail greeting, tap the “Stop” button to end the recording. You can listen to your recorded greeting by tapping the “Play” button.

7. If you are satisfied with your greeting, tap on the “Save” button to set it as your new voicemail greeting. If you want to re-record it, you can tap on the “Record” button again and follow the same steps.

8. After saving your new voicemail greeting, you can exit the voicemail settings by tapping the “Done” button at the top right corner of the screen.

Congratulations! You have successfully changed your voicemail greeting on your iPhone 12. Now, callers will hear your personalized message when they reach your voicemail.

It’s worth mentioning that if you ever want to revert back to the default greeting, you can follow the same steps mentioned above but choose the “Default” option instead of “Custom” in step 4. This will restore the pre-recorded greeting provided by your carrier.

I hope this detailed explanation helps you in changing your voicemail greeting on your iPhone 12. If you have any further questions or need assistance with any other iPhone features, feel free to ask!
