Did you set up a PIN on your voicemail?

If you have set up a PIN you can get your voicemail from a landline:

 

Once you've set up your PIN it is easy to check your voicemail from any other phone.

Dial your mobile, wait for it to go to answer phone and hit the star key, a prompt will ask you to enter your pin code that you set up previously followed by the hash key

I know read messages expire after a while, but don't know about unread ones. If you have a pin, you can listn to voicemail by calling from another phone/landline.

Your unaccessed voicemail messages are retained for 30 days I believe, so you should still have some time to gain access to them by the methods suggested.

 

Edit: Confirmed the period. It is stated here:

i already know about the whole landline thing but there was a mishap with resetting the pin and that. so i cant do the landline thing, its interesting to know that read ones expire.

Re: Do voicemails expire if you dont listen to them?

the pin option is not a solution for OP, as he/she is not asking for alternative option....

i don't think voicemails get deleted, however only limited amount of voicemails can be stored, maybe 10... after that your inbox will not be able to record any messages...
