    Before everyone recommends Google voice I should point out I'm in the UK and Google voice is US only!

    Can anyone recommend alternatives?

    I'm on a rooted phone running cyanogen mod 10.2. Also happy to pay for the right app, but free is better!

    have you tried HulloMail?
    I used to use that and liked it. It even has a "share to facebook" button to embarrass drunken friends :D

    Of the best free ones I'm not sure of, but if best means security then I would recommend HulloMail.

    You're able to set it so that you're only able to listen to voice mail with the application or via the website which is a 16 digit code. You also get an option to send voice mails as an mp3 to your email address or have your voice mails automatically transcribed for you to read.

    You can also try YouMail, from the Play store, don't know if they have a UK version. Looks similar to Hullo Mail

    Youmail isn't available in the UK.

    Hullo mail free version just tried, and sound quality of recorded message is atrocious, also the app is constantly trying to get me to upgrade to the full version which is

    If you're with O2 their Tu Go app includes visual voicemail.

    You have to be an actual O2 customer. It's not even available to O2 PAYG or O2 business customers. Just O2 monthly.
