    Official Google Voice App

    With the Google, Google Voice app when i send a text message from the built in "messaging" (the text messaging app) does it send it from my gv number or my real cell number?

    you have the option if the person is in your contacts. click the little messaging icon next to the contacts name and it will popup with a menu asking which method to use

    Ok this doesn't exactly answer my question. If I iinitiate a text from the default text message application in an droid will it send it from my google voice number if I have the gv app installed?

    If you send an SMS from to the contacts 406-xxx-xxxx number it will come from your Google Voice number.

    You can also send SMS directly from the GV app.

    But if you don't do either of those two options it will appear from your cell number.

    Yes the default messaging app will use you cell number. Using contacts is the best and quickest way i found to SMS people using my GV number. Hope this helps

    Thou think with android integration it could use the default text message application to send texts from gv

    If you do not have a texting plan then don't quote me on anything...

    Don't want to say anything that gets your charged.

    Google voice app uses your data plan only for sending SMS messages if that clears things up at all
