The section below it, which says SMS Forwarding, check that box and then put in your email.
Also you could always log into myverizon and disable texting on your phone, which will make sure you never get texts to your verizon number.
Hmm, idk whats wrong then. And yah i use it because my dad would not let me get texting on our family plan, costing $30 a month, yet he let me get this phone even know its costing $30 a month.... Go Figure, so for me, this is way better than nothing!!
Hopefully they are able to have it so whenever you get a text message to the googie voice number, it notifies the google voice app on the phone. Seems to be a better solution than refreshing only after soo many mins.
