It is possible to check voicemail on iPhone even when your device is not turned on. This may be the case when the battery dies or when, for some other reasons, the phone will not work.

Step 1) Access your voicemail service using another phone. Get another phone and dial your phone number. Since the iPhone will be switched off, you will be sent straight to your voicemail service.

Step 2) Stop any outgoing voicemail messages from the new phone. So that you do not record a new voicemail message on your service, press the star (*) or hash (#) key. The choice will depend on your carrier so you need to know this in advance. If you press one and it does not stop the outgoing voicemail message, then disconnect the call and try the other.

Step 3) Access your voicemail account. If you have a password on your voicemail account, enter it at the prompt.

Step 4) Listen to your voicemail messages. Depending on your carrier, you should listen to the prompt, which will direct you as to which button you should press to listen to your voicemail messages. Listen to which key is used to skip to the next message, delete current message or save the message and proceed to the next.
