    Folks,

    As per title, I'm trying to find out of I can get Siri to call my voicemail.

    I tried just now with "Call my voicemail", but I got an almost immediate response of "You don't have any voicemail messages" (which was incorrect).

    I've got a 5S, running iOS 7.1.2

    Thanks.

    It can check the voicemail on the phone (visual voicemail) not actually calling a voicemail service.

    To be honest it's been so long since I used a carriers voicemail service I'm not exactly sure how it works. So to guess an answer I'd say, it can if your carrier supports apples built in voicemail. So it's carrier dependent.

    Only 1 carrier (o2) supports Visual Voicemail in the UK, but I guess that's my question answered, so thanks!

    As the others have stated only qualifying o2/Orange/EE customers who have enabled Visual Voicemail can use the "Voicemail" function under Siri.

    It's a shame more carriers don't support it here in the UK....

    You can by saving the voicemail number (the long one) as a contact then ask Siri to call that contact.
