    Unhappy anyway to recover lost voicemails?
    hey everybody. we just switched 7 lines from at&t to verizon, moving from iphone 3GSs to iphone 4s. we made backup copies of the old phones & moved everything to the new ones. after a few days i emailed everyone to tell them to bring me their old phones so i could erase all the data & prep them for resale. 3 of the phones came back this morning so i erased them using the built-in erase function on the iphone.

    now, my mom (one of the 7) just texted me at 430pm saying "i just remembered i had a voicemail from grandmommy still on my phone!!" my grandmother died last august after a long, ugly battle with kidney cancer. is there ANY way to some how make that message magically reappear? could it possibly have been stored in a backup copy somewhere? would there have been a way to transfer it even if she'd remembered it in time?

    thanks for any help.

    You may be able to recover it by jailbreaking the phone.

    Specs:

    can you restore her phone with her backup to see if you can get it back?
    and then maybe record the voicemail?
