Further Information

Yes, iBackup Extractor version 2.10 and higher is able to access voice mails in your iPhone backups.

iBackup Extractor will display and extract voice mails if your iPhone supports Visual Voice Mails.

Playing your Voice Mails

Voice Mails are saved as AMR files, which can only be played with certain software.

If you are using a Mac, you will be able to play your voice mail files with QuickTime Player. However, if you do not have access to this software, or if you are using a Windows PC, you may need to download a free piece of software such as AMR Player, to listen to your saved voice mails.

The program is crashing, everytime I try to extract something from a backup. It opens the "Windows is searching for a solution to the problem...." window, and then closes the program. Any suggestions?

@Brian I am sorry to hear that this is the case. When iBackup Extractor crashes, it should ask to send an error report. Please click to send this report and then open a support ticket on our online helpdesk detailing the date and time that the report was sent. This will enable our technical team to investigate this issue further.
