    I just installed mikg and love it. My battery life seems better and the phone runs faster, but I'm encountering something really weird... every time I shut down or restart my phone Google voice sends me a text like this:

    I'm sure that there is some setting somewhere that I tweaked to get it to do this, but I can't figure out where it is to turn it off. Does anybody have any idea why it is doing this or anything. Just fyi, Google voice sends the text to itself.

    Weird... never heard of anything like that yet. I don't use GV anymore though... hell, they might give my number away o_O

    Sorry I couldn't be more helpful, but I'd check out the Google Voice Web interface (webface? ;)) and see if the settings exist there.

    I checked the web interface and all of the settings for google voice, but found nothing.

    Anybody else have any ideas?

    sorry bro I don't have an answer for this either I've only used the sprint vm. Maybe Mizzou can answer your question when he pops in He uses Gvoice.

    Did you switch your sprint number to a google voice number? I used this feature for a while and I didn't like it so I went back to my sprint number and ONLY using GV for my voicemail.

    Have you reset GV on the computer side? You will need to get rid of the GV number and then return to the Sprint number. Then when you open up GV application for the first time, on the very first screen, press skip to skip the process of switching to a GV number

    No, I've kept my gv and my sprint numbers. I'll completely uninstall and reinstall gv and see if that helps. If not, any other suggestions?

    Uninstalling and reinstalling will not do it, you will have to change the settings in the Google Voice app on the computer, it's the only way to revert back to your Sprint number;)
