If you forget your voicemail password

If you can't listen to voicemail on your iPhone because you forgot your voicemail password, contact your wireless carrier. 

A message might ask for your voicemail password when you set up voicemail on a new iPhone or after you restore from a backup.

Apple doesn't have access to your voicemail password and can't reset it for you. Only your wireless carrier manages the voicemail account for your phone number.
