You can change the message into anything that you want. You can use your name, and leave a catchy message, and you can even sing a song if you want to. You have a wide range of options when changing your iPhone voicemail settings; not only can you change the type of message, but also how to retrieve them, when you should be prompted, and a lot more.

Part 1. How to Change and Record Voicemail Greetings on iPhone

You want to configure your iPhone voicemail settings and make them unique; here are the steps that you have to follow.

Step 1: Open the app on your phone. Go into your iPhone dialer and access the voicemail features.

Step 2: On the lower right corner, tap on the voicemail button. This action will either lead you to the voicemail menu on the iPhone, or it will dial the voicemail service offered by your carrier.

Step 3: Follow the voice prompts. This is dependent on the carrier and also the plan that you have. You will have to follow the initial process given by the voice prompts from your carrier. This will allow you to record your greeting.

Step 4: Set up the voicemail using visual voicemail. If your carrier plan allows visual voicemail, you will see a "Set Up Now" button, which you should tap.

Step 5: Set up your password. Depending on your carrier, you will be asked for a password for your voicemail. Make sure that it is one that you can easily remember. Each carrier has a certain number of digits. You will be asked to repeat the password for it to become effective.

Step 6: Set up your new greeting. Using visual voicemail, you can decide whether to use the “default” greeting, or create a “custom” one. When creating a custom greeting, you will be allowed to review it before you confirm the recording.

Simply click on the record button, and then click stop when you are done. Once you have reviewed it, you can click on “Save” to set it as your greeting.
