iPhone Voicemail - What Is It & How To Setup On iPhone 11

What is The iPhone Voicemail?

Simply put, the iPhone voicemail is just a digitally recorded message on your iPhone. So, when someone calls and you're not there, this message will be retrieved.

One of the things you should keep in mind is that the iPhone voicemail visual works in a slightly different way. After all, within the iPhone voicemail settings, you can see a list of your messages and easily choose the ones to listen to or to delete.

So, let's see how to set up voicemail on iPhone 11 Pro Max and iPhone 11.

How To Setup Voicemail On iPhone 11

When you are looking to set up your iPhone voicemail visual, you just need to follow the next steps:

Step #1: Open your Phone app. At the bottom of your iPhone home screen, you should see the voicemail icon in the right corner. Just tap on it to open it. 

Step #2: Since you probably don't have any messages defined, you should see an empty space with a button "Set up now" right in the center of your screen. As you tap on this button, you now have 2 different options. You can either access your previous iPhone voicemail service by using your old password or, in case you never used this before, you will need to create a password and enter it. When you're finished, choose "Done ".

Step #3: At this point, you should now see a Greeting screen. In case you want to personalize it, you just need to tap on Custom and then Record to record your greeting. To ensure that it is as you want, just tap Play. Once you're happy with your greeting screen, just tap on Done. In case you don't want to define any Greeting screen, you can simply select Default and the Done to skip this step.

Step #4: Your iPhone 11 should now have the voicemail visual setup.

How To Transfer Your Existing Voicemail

In case you had already defined all the iPhone voicemail settings in your previous iPhone and you want to transfer it to your new iPhone 11 or iPhone 11 Pro Max, you can do this as well. Here's what you need to do:

Step #1: Go to your Phone app and tap in the Voicemail tab.

Step #2: Tap on Set Up Now.

Step #3: Enter your password and just tap done.

Step #4: You should find your previous messages here. In addition, you can also record a new custom greeting or simply use the default greeting.

Step #5: Tap Save. 

Bottom Line


As you can see, it’s pretty easy to set up voicemail on iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro Max. All you need to do is to follow the steps and you’re done. Besides, at any point, you can simply go back and edit your messages, remove them, and even add new ones.
