After setting up your phone, there are a number of things you should do immediately before download your favorite apps. Specifically, now that your data is on the device, you need to take steps now to ensure it's both protected and retained. Fortunately, most of these steps are a one-time process.
The reason this should be done with your new device is that oftentimes, we will ignore the protection and retention of our data until it is too late. By making theses modifications now, you can be sure that for the entire life of your new phone, your data will be both private and accessible by...

How to Set Up Google Voice to Get Visual Voicemail on Your Unlocked Android Phone

Buying an unlocked phone is usually the correct move. By doing so, you bypass a lot of bloat that carriers put on your phone, and you can also use that phone with another carrier should you decide to switch to a new one. However, a lot of carriers won't give unlocked devices access to their visual voicemail apps. For that, there's Google Voice.
Google Voice is a VOIP call forwarding service that gives you a free number that's tethered to your Gmail account. It comes packaged inside the Google Voice app, which has a visual voicemail service built-in. Using it, you'll be able to have your...
