Have you ever called someone, left them a voicemail and then regretted the way you said something, or just wished you could redo the recording for whatever reason? If it’s a good friend it’s no big deal if you sound incompetent, but with certain people you might care more about leaving a certain impression.
I had one of those moments today but then remembered a little trick I learned on how to erase or rerecord a voicemail you’re not satisfied with.
This trick is not iPhone-specific, but it works on AT&T enabled phones at least. (I’m not sure about other service providers.)
If you realize you’re unsatisfied with a voicemail you’ve just recorded:
- Don’t hang up!
- Go to your iPhone’s keypad.
- Touch star (*)
Your message will be erased and you’ll be given the option to either rerecord it or hang up. That’s it. No more embarrassing voicemails.
