    Is there any way I can use Google Voice SMS through Handcent, the stock SMS client, or any other client?

    Also, I noticed that my Voice sms's are coming in much later than on my other device (iphone with textnow routing google voice messages). Is there any reason for that? I would think the Droid would be faster since it is integrated with voice...

    I'm having trouble setting up my google voice stuff. I'd like to send and receive texts for free, and I understand you can do with this, right? Any tips on settings? I've got it to people can text my google voice number, but I get an email and an SMS notification on my phone when it happens..so I think it is charging me for texts.

    You need to go into the notifications in the google voice settings and uncheck the notification via sms, and have the synchronize inbox checked. Thats how I have it and it works great.

    I would also love to know if I could use handscent or any other third party texting app. The google voice one doesn't have the pop up like handscent where you can reply to the text without leaving the app that you are in.
  4. I moved out of the country and am using google voice with groove IP to make calls and send texts back home to the states, however I would like handcent to be able to send as well, is this possible?
  5. Or is there another app that I can use for gv messaging?
