How to Make a Voicemail Greeting on iPhone

In this tutorial, you will learn how to create a voicemail greeting for your iPhone. Ignoring a huge chore of claims, the standard iOS 7 does not have this feature implemented. Luckily, a third-party app comes to help.

Step 1. Go to your App Store and search for the free app called YouMail. Tap to install it and open it.
