    I use Google Voice on my new Droid and love it. I am trying to use it for SMS but my problem/question is - how do I set it to notify me that a SMS has arrived? I realize there is a lag in receiving these but that's not my problem. I'll open GV and see 5 SMS messages that have been there for an hour and I received no notification.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Go to the Google Voice app > Settings > Refresh and Notification. Make sure that Inbox Notifications is checked. I know this sounds silly but it may just be that you have them turned off.

    You can pick the ringtone/light/vibration pattern too from there.

    Thank you! All that plain english on the screen in front of me was too confusing! Very simple solution that I'm now embarrassed to have posted! Thanks.

    No need to be embarrased, it happens. I know I've missed obvious settings in apps before, and ended up slapping myself when I finally found them.
