    Go to voice.google.com, click Setup, under the Phones tab click Edit for your phone and you should see Receive SMS on this phone (mobile phones only)
    make sure that is unchecked.

    Because you're sending your texts via your Google Voice forward SMS? Just because you're sending texts via the forward number, it still means you sent a message to that number via text message.

    Thank you Howie. I had been wondering about that too. I had it unchecked on the voicemail & SMS tab but didn't catch the phone one. Geez! I was getting kinda miffed thinking folks were still sending me texts to my regular phone number instead of my GV number. You just made my day!
