    Sorry if this has been covered somewhere else. I just started using Google Voice, and for some reason, it's very confusing to me. Basically, all I want to do is use it for texting people who aren't on Verizon. I have the GV app on my phone, and I used it for texting (sending and receiving) a friend and it appears to have worked correctly. However, I'm reading a lot of things that talk about adding the 406 number to the person's contact info. I didn't do that, and things seem to have worked correctly. The text showed up in my inbox from their normal cell number, and when I replied, it showed as being from my GV number, there were no 406 numbers or anything like that involved.

    Am I missing something with these other numbers?

    I'm having trouble with GV too... is there a way to make GV the default for messaging?

    When you go into a contact card you can select to either call, send an email, or send a message sms, mms...... if you press the mms sms option it should ask you what you want to use Messaging or google voice. there is also a box to check asking you to "make the default" option. check that and it should send sms through google voice. keep in mind gv does not support mms
