    Anyone else having issues with their Google Voice widget. Mine seems to stop refreshing new messages (incoming and outgoing). And also the text area of the widget seems to disappear leaving only the border of the widget. Can't seem to resolve this in any other way then to remove the widget and put it back on the screen. But it then just happens again. Any suggestions?

    Thanks for confirming. Hopefully Google will update the app to address the issue.

    It has had this issue for awhile on honeycomb. Google doesn't care too much about it's Voice app or they would have fixed problem where you get a text and read it on a pc/tablet/any other device and the notification on your phone isn't removed. That problem was introduced in the spring I believe.

    Same issue here, I find that if I go into the app from the widget, it usually will refresh the widget. Then it'll work for a day or so and crap out again.

    Only thing I have found is if you long press the widget like you are going to move it, but just drop it back same place it will ussually refresh....

    but they need to fix this ASAP. It makes the widget basically useless.
