    Hi.

    I am wondering whether it's possible to password-protect the access to my voicemail on the iPhone 3G. Right now, all I have to do to access VM is hit the Phone icon and tap "Voicemail." I'd like to make it so anyone doing that will have to punch in my VM password to listen to the voicemail. How can I do that?

    Thanks!

    You can't. Set you a passcode to unlock the phone and thats about secure as it gets.

    Thanks for the reply. I was hoping to be able to just protect my VM without locking the whole phone. :(

    if you jailbreak, there is an app that lets you password protect specific apps, sms messages and voicemails from anyone you want on your contact list.

    Thanks! I'm not ready to jailbreak my iPhone yet, but do you happen to remember the name of the app just in case I get up the nerve soon?
