How to Sign Up For Gmail Without Phone Verification
Jason Jason Photo Jason Jason, Jan 10, 2017

I'm a web developer who is often working on many tasks for several different businesses every day.

Each time I'm involved in creating a new business email address, I try to get an accompanying gmail address just because it helps down the road if I ever want to have a YouTube channel or a Google Voice phone number.
