On older phones I could start vmail going and just let it run - through all messages. There were options to perform actions as you went along. But if you just let it go it would play all messages and save them.

I miss that:on the iPhone I have to mess with the keys for every message. The "speaker" , play/pause and go back are all v close to one another so it is frustrating. Also there is a few seconds of pause for the vmail to be retrieved - for each vmail.

Is there any way to get the behavior of the older phones for vmail playback on the iPhone? Essentially a hands-free full playback?

thanks

  • Have a look at YouMail, HulloMail, Google Voice and VisionMail Visual Voicemail. I'm not sure, whether or not they are capable of what you are expecting, but you can give them a try. The build in visual voice mail functionality of iOS won't match your expectations anytime. – pallox Feb 10 '17 at 16:54

Also have a look at the answer of @Margaret Martin. @Marc Wilson also provided a useful approach. :)

Visual Voicemail—where you can select which message you want to listen to instead of being forced to listen to them in a specific order—doesn't seem to allow continuous playback. Also, is suspect that the delay in retrieving a message is because it's contacting the carrier.

It may be possible to find an app that allows playback as you want, but beware of buying a an older app that may not work with more recent iOS versions or one that won't work with your carrier.

I don't know what version of iOS you're running, but more recent versions (I'm looking at 10.2) have an improved interface for playback as well as transcription of the message.

  • doesn't seem to allow continuous playback guessing that's the clue. It isn't designed for continous playback, since you are allowed to choose the message you want to hear. – pallox Feb 10 '17 at 17:15

Of course. Dial into your provider's voicemail system and use it as you like. That's what it's there for.

Visual Voicemail is there for random access to your voicemails.
