Hi all, I hope this is an appropriate place for these inquiries. I hooked up Google voice yesterday and been personalizing since. So far here's what I'm seeing and looking for any any suggestions or setting directions to fix.
1) The settings are set to all calls made from the GV number, but when texting, it comes through the other side as my normal cell number and not my Google Voice number. It's confusing to others who I've informed of my new number.
2) When I get a text message, I'm notified by Handcent (preferred app for texting) and also GV, which if chosen, doesn't go to Handcent but the "stock" messaging app. Anyway to get he GV to open Handcent or just turn off the text notification in GV?
3) I signed up for Visual Voicemail before getting GV. Is that now useless if everyone uses the GV number? I don't want to cancel it if I still need it. I do like it's UI.
4) I thought the information said that there was free unlimited texting. If so, how does it get separated from the cell phone carrier plan?
Thanks and mods feel free to move if more appropriate in another forum.
