Is it possible to retrieve deleted voicemail messages that were deleted more than 30 days ago but less than a year? The reason why I'm asking is that I may need some voicemail messages for court and to file a report with the police.

Hi Melissa, as far as I'm aware it's not possible once you have deleted voicemail messages to get them back at any time. As far as I'm concerned it would be a massive privacy issue to have any voicemail messages stored away from users that they are unaware of anybody having because you have deleted them.

As Paul said, once a voicemail message expires or is deleted, it is impossible to retrieve it. They stay stored in your voicemail box for 10 days unless they are saved again.

This is possible for recent messages, but probably not 30 day old ones.  This works on Telus and Koodo:  press 19 and it will play back recently deleted messages... not sure how far back, but for me, it started with the ones I deleted yesterday.
