2. See Rule #1

I use it for text messages. That way it doesn't go against my 250 free limit. At least that's the way I've used it in the past, if something has changed I'm unaware of it. All I know is that when I had my Storm using Google Voice it worked like a charm.
Please be respectful. Respect is #1 here at DF Please read our Guidelines of Conduct

If you're going to ask why you should choose anything then you at least need to post what you're looking for or expecting from a given solution.
