How to Delete All Voicemail Messages on your iPhone in iOS 8

iOS 8 Voicemails work pretty much the same way as in iOS 7. And since not much has changed, deleting voicemails is almost similar to how you do it in the previous iOS.

Your iPhone not only stores the voicemails you receive but it also stores deleted voicemails, which adds up to the used-space on the iPhone. For this reason, it’s not just enough to delete the voicemail from the Voicemail menu in the Phone app. You need to clear them out completely. If you’re looking to delete voicemail on your iPhone, here’s what you need to do:

The above method deletes voicemails from the Phone app but it doesn’t really clear it out from your iPhone. Instead, it puts them into a recycle bin/trash where it can be recovered from. This means the deleted voicemails will still be occupying space on your iPhone.

Sometimes, you’ll notice that the Clear All is disabled (or grayed out). In this case, you can try a few of the following solutions:

  • Manually clear out a few deleted voicemails because sometimes, a lot of voicemails can cause processing issues.
  • Reset network settings from Settings → General → Reset.
  • Try clearing out all voicemail from your account with your carrier’s website.

That’s all, guys!
