This has been an issue with my last 3 iphones, all different models. Why is it so hard to listen to voicemail while holding it to my ear? I hit play and put it to my ear and it either immediately stops or stops after 5 seconds and I need to hit play again. It's just so precarious. What's with the weird motion settings? Why can't I just hit play, put it to my ear, and listen to a voicemail? Seems like the simplest thing in the world. It's like Apple wants to force me to listen on the speaker.
