    Google Voice - got charged $60.??????

    I thought you can text using google voice without being charged? I used voice for all my texting & got charged $.20 per text msg. that came to over $60 last month.

    Am I doing something wrong? How can I text w/out a charge? Damn - I'm paying $30/mo for data service, you'd think I'd get more.

    Were you texting to other GV users? Pretty sure it's only free when its GV to GV, not GV to regular mobile.

    No - I only had it. That's not what I was told. I read somewhere in here & another source (can't find where I saw it from) that if you get a phone # from google voice, you can use that number for texting w/out being charged. I was told that's the beauty of Google Voice.

    I think it has to do with how you have gv set up. I had mine set up to show the number of the person calling gv and it was being charged minutes, I changed it to show gv in the cid and it now shows up as mob to mob since it's a f/f number
    Not sure how to set it for texts as I don't use it for texting

    The video on the app, which was on my phone when I got it, says nothing about a charge. Is that only for texting? I don't text much and don't have a text pkg. It is nice for searches and directions. I guess I had better check my bill or call VZ.

    Contact Verizon and ask about it. If you had no texting plan on the phone at all and something wasn't set up correctly you weren't texting for free. Also, make absolutely sure you have your GV outgoing number in your F&F list, otherwise every call is eating minutes.

    Google Voice - Features#
    check out this site and the "mobile app" section. It says FREE. Looks like a great app but do you have to sign up for a Google phone nr.?
