A few people complained that the Phone app pops up a warning saying the voicemail was full but in fact, it wasn’t. And in this case, they couldn’t receive messages from their friends, family, and clients on the Phone app.

Even though they deleted all voicemails, the issue still existed.  Some of them have tried to seek help from Apple and the wireless network provider, such as ATT and Verizon, but still failed to get the issue solved.

Why does iPhone say the Voicemail is Full but actually there is no voicemail?

The delay of voicemail sync might be the reason why this voicemail problem occurs. And due to the network delay or Internet/server issue, what you’ve seen on your device (local) may not be synced correctly or quickly to the Voicemail Box on Network provider side. Or the iPhone failed to recognize the real voicemail storage space.

I’ve reviewed some iPhone recovery software before. And I know that most of iPhone recovery apps are able to preview and extract contents from iPhone backup. Therefore I re-tested these apps and added some new ones, such as iMazing and Joyoshare, to have the test.

I’ve made several backups using my new iPhone XS and old iPhone 6 before starting the tests. Installed more than 10 backup extractor tools on a MacBook 2017 and a ThinkPad laptop to get the contents on my iTunes backup and iCloud backup.

And I checked whether the free version of these apps could access the data hidden in the backup files, and what data types it supports to view. There are two kinds of backup files that iPhone users use, the iTunes backup and iCloud backup. I tested the ability of these apps on browsing both of these backup types.
