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...
