voicemail query

Hi all,

I'm swapping handsets still with existing O2 sim. I have an iphone 5 swapping to iphone 6... will my 02 stored voicemails travel over to the new phone please? I have been told the icloud has no involvment with 02 voicemail storage.

Re: voicemail query

We think they are stored on phone so prob not transferable (question has been asked before but I can't remember if we had a definite answer).
I have no affiliation whatsoever with O2 or any subsidiary companies. Comments posted are entirely of my own opinion. This is not Customer Service so we are unable to help with account specific issues.

I will leave the experts to read (and dismiss if needed) Smiley Very Happy

I don't believe they are backed up either by iTunes or iCloud but I'm happy to be proved wrong.....

Re: voicemail query

I'm just recalling other threads where customers have lost saved vm's for various reasons and not been able to restore them from backups.
I don't use o2 vm anyway so I've no personal experience to pass on.
