Checking your voice mail from your BlackBerry device

You can view a list of your voice mail messages, play your voice mail messages, and change a variety of voice mail settings and options from your BlackBerry device, without having to call into your voice mail service. Your voice mail messages can be automatically downloaded to your device and you can pause, fast-forward, or rewind the voice mail message as you listen to it. You can also forward a voice mail message, send a reply to the person who left you a voice mail message, or delete a voice mail message from within the Phone app or the BlackBerry Hub.

Your service provider's voice mail system might automatically delete messages after a certain period of time. If you don't want a message to get automatically deleted, you can save it to your device.

Depending on your country or region, this service might not be available. You need to subscribe to this service in order to access the features. Contact your service provider to subscribe.
