When I upgraded my iPhone 4 from iOS 5 to iOS 6 a year ago I didn't lose anything. Then a few days later when I replaced my iPhone 4 with an iPhone 5, I still didn't lose anything.
Well, that last part is a small fib, but it has to do with the timing between purchasing/activating the iPhone 5 and restoring the iPhone 4 backup onto it. I actually lost a few SMS messages, but they were not really critical to me, and I knew it would happen because I had received them on the iPhone 5 before I was able to restore the iPhone 4 backup onto it.

If by "saved voicemails" you mean Visual Voicemail messages that you've already/previously retrieved from AT&T's VM system onto your iPhone--i.e., you can listen to them repeatedly from your iPhone voicemail list--as long as you sync/backup your iPhone to iTunes regularly and then subsequently restore said backup to your 5S, your VVM messages should be restored as well. If you set up your 5S as a "new phone" and don't restore from a previous iPhone backup sync, then you will not be able to access your saved voicemails. Now you may be able to retrieve/download old voicemail messages from AT&T's servers but that would be dependent upon how long they are saved, as far as customer retrieval is concerned.
