    Making GV the default SMS, with a twist.

    So I need to make GV my default SMS app, but I accidentally made the android app the default by mistake. I've looked everywhere for this option, but I can't find it now that I've accidentally made my choice.

    Uninstall and reinstall would give you the prompt again. I know there are other way, but that one works.

    Go into your settings and than under applications, tap manage applications and go to messaging nad tap on reset defaults. Now it should ask what you want to handle SMS by default.

    I don't see messaging when I go to manage applications.

    I'm in 2.1 btw.

    The way I set GV as default was to long press a contact, select text message, the number, and then GV as the app, checking the default box. It might still prompt you using this method.

    This worked when I go through my contacts list, but when I go through my gtalk client, it still defaults to the Android app.

    How do you SMS a contact through gtalk? In the default app I don't see that option. In any event, I have noticed that some apps don't seem to check what you've set as default. This happens with the browser as well.

    Thank you guys for this post it really helped me.

    I do have another question though. For some reason I can not locate a setting in the GV App or the GV Website where I can add a signature to all SMS messages. Is this not supported yet ?

    Why would you want to sign your sms? It adds characters when there's a limit of 160 characters per message.
