    If I port my number from Sprint to Google Voice will I lose the abilty to block TXT and phone numbers of unwanted numbers?
    Right now I can go onto my Sprint online account and block numbers and I really like that to black SPAM TXT MSG's

    Ive been having issues with google voice and text messages plus I dont like that sms goto google voice and mms goto the messaging app. Would be nice to have 1 app handle all the messaging. Also would get alerts for missed calls without every having the phone ring so I decided to port back.

    The Sprint/Google voice integration is free. You don't have to do the $20 number port. It isn't a true number port in the sense that you have control over enabling/disabling it from your google account.

    I have absolutely everything go to Handcent. To do this, do the following.

    1. Open Voice on your phone, then open its settings.
    2. Open Sync and notifications, then disable Inbox notifications.
    3. Go to Google Voice on your computer, and go to the settings. (Or click HERE)
    4. Click your phone's Edit button.
    5. Tick the "Receive text messages on this phone" box and save your settings.

    Now all messages should go to your default SMS app. Only other problem is that you can't use your notifications to open your voicemail. It sends me a text, then I open Voice manually to listen to it.
