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.
