Read about them below and only contact Apple or your service provider if they don’t work.

1. Toggle Airplane Mode on and off

This action works to fix a device that is having trouble connecting to a network and for that reason, may work to fix this problem as well. To do this go to Settings and enable airplane Mode. Wait about 20 seconds and then disable it.

2. Reset Network Settings

This action will reset all the network and as such may fix any connectivity issues that you may be having and that may be causing the voicemail issue. It is also worth noting that after resetting your network settings, you will need to reconnect to all networks including Wi-Fi so take note of your passwords before doing this.

To do this go to Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings. Confirm that this is what you want to do and reboot the iPhone. You should no longer see the problem. If you still do though, try the next solution.
