New Android user here, I've used a webOS phone for the past 2 years and finally decided to jump ship. It's a little different working with all the available options where as webOS often only had a single default application for Email or Messaging Android may have several.
I've installed google's voice application, I actually used voice with my webOS phone however there was no native application. So all my voicemail has always been on the voice web site however I'm seeing this strange new behavior after installing the android app. My sms replies are showing in the voice app and not in the default message app. So I will send a text message out of the default app but the reply shows up in voice. I have recieved sms messages in the default app before but after installing voice last night they are showing in that application.
I would rather see all my messages in one place, how do I receive my text messages in the default app?
EDIT: Solution - I found the solution to this on the google voice forums. I am now receiving messages in both the default application and in voice.
Phone not receiving SMS - Google Voice Help
EDIT2: Single SMS notification(Only use if you have a text message plan) - I'm sure this is obvious, and most people are probably going to use the voice application for SMS anyway...however if you are going to use the default app for text messaging and only want to get a single notification this is what I did.
In voice go to the menu | more | settings | sync and notifications
1. Text Messages ( Notify via Text message ) is turned on
2. Inbox Notifications ( Notify in Status Bar ..) is turned off
Now you will only get text messages notifications for each voicemail in addition to the regular SMS and MMS messages.
Not every sms I receive shows in voice and any sms I send from the voice app does not show in the default app...so only if I use the default app for all messaging would I get all my text messages in one place. Hopefully they will add MMS to voice one day but until then I'll just use the default app.
