    • If it is not listened to, a new voice message will be kept for 30 days (calculated from the date it was received).
    • Once listened, a voice message is automatically deleted after 30 days.
    • A saved message will be available for 30 days (calculated from the moment it is saved).

     

    Your voicemail has a 35 messages maximum capacity. Once this has been reached, people who are trying to reach you won’t be able to leave you a message you’ll receive a text message each time someone tries to leave you a message.

    You may want to delete some messages to make room for new ones.
