First android phone and am trying to use google voice for as much as I can, working decent so far, but several issues have come up, if anyone can address them.. 1) Anytime Google voice is open, SMS notifications occurr basically instantaneously. Sometimes when it is not the open app, notifications for messages do not appear for up to 30 minutes (you can tell from the timestamps). I do not see any options about syncing frequency in the google voice app. Is there any way to rectify this? 2) SMS notification sounds. I can't find any way to make custom tones for each contact. The typical solution I've read is to use a custom SMS app, but can't do this with voice. Any workarounds? 3) Are there any 3rd party apps that handle any aspects of google voice SMS or customization? Some searches found nothing. Overall I'm pretty happy with using voice as my SMS, just want to make it as good as I possibly can.
