Quick question: do text messages come through to the phone on either wi-fi or G3? Or is it just G3?
Iext messages come through Verizon and your services, therefore through the cell signal..the 1x signal that isn't displayed in fact. With no cell signal and just a WiFi connection, you will not receive your texts/multimedia messages.
Text messages are sent in the control bands of the cellular network. You need to have cell network signal to send/receive texts.
I wonder if you're using Google Voice or a SIP app on your phone. Hhmmn. I might have to test this today. Those two may send/receive texts through a WiFi connection.
Google voice can and will receive text messages through wifi.
So my Droid is in the mail! Should be here hopefully tomorrow.
I'm moving from a WinMo phone & am planning on using my Google Voice number for texting (I do not have a text plan).
Is it possible to initiate a Google Voice text without going into the browser & logging in to your GV account?
Yeah, there's a GV app.
The caveat of using GV to text is that they aren't pushed, so if you want to receive them in a timely manner, you'll have to set your GV to sync with the server in short intervals, which will have an adverse effect on your battery life.
Thanks; the delay is not a real big deal for free, since I'm not a big texter (at least not yet).
I see that I didn't know this before because My WinMo phone can't do this; CANNOT WAIT for my Droid to arrive.
