Yea, there's a number of ways to approach configuring for this. This is how I do it ... but remember, each carrier is different and if you have a carrier-locked/specific phone, it too will be different.

However, I would like to make a general statement ... voicemail is not tied to a phone, it's a service handled by your carrier.

For example, my wife and I had S10s, then we purchased S21s. When the phones arrived, we removed the SIM card from the S10s and put them into the S21s, powered them up, and we're good to go to initiate and receive calls ... zero changes to "voicemail setup", etc.

However, if you now have new service, yea, you'll have to set it up.

So this is how I do it:

Have a spouse or friend call your number.

Do not answer it ... allow it to go to default vmail

You will get a Notification about a new vmail and should suggest the number to call.

Call it ... it will prompt you to set it up, step by step
