How to Fix Visual Voicemail Currently Unavailable Error on iPhone

Solution #1: Turn On/Off Airplane Mode

Turning ON the Airplane mode and then after about 10-20 seconds, turning it OFF again is a well-known (and pretty old) trick to fix 3G, 4G or LTE network settings. Like I said, since it’s most probably an issue with your 3G/LTE setting, the fix might be to switch off the network and restart it again.

Go to Settings → and turn ON Airplane Mode.

After about 20 seconds, turn it back OFF and wait for a while before trying to fetch Voicemails again.

Before you head to check the Voicemail from the Phone app, check mail or open a website to see if your network is working fine.

Solution #2: Force Reboot Your Device

If the above method doesn’t work, you might as well try to reboot your iPhone. This effectively refreshes all connections and in the process, might fix the network problem.

Just press and hold on Home and sleep/wake button at once for about 10 seconds. On your iPhone 7/7 Plus, press and hold on your sleep/wake button and volume down button at once.

Solution #3: Reset Network Settings

Still facing this issue? Try resetting the network to the factory setting. One thing you need to know that it will wipe out all the Wi-Fi passwords. Hence, you will have to re-enter them.
