    Did you manually update or...?

    Apparently the update people downloaded was the beta? Or so I read. *shrugs*

    I tried it a few times to see if it was working, and it said failed to send text (or sms, can't remember), every time I tried. Some how though, my test SMS did make it through, though GV isn't showing it as being sent.

    yea this is really bothersome that google has seemed to abandon the google voice app, cause that is pretty much the only reason why i got an android phone for tight integration of google voice....

    It doesnt tell when we will see the update, but somehow it tracks the highest version out there, even if hasnt been released yet.

    I did the manual update. No issues sending and receiving texts to myself in land or port modes.

    maybe there's something else contributing....like another app. FYI, My google voice version is 20700.

    How could i replicate the issue? I tried sending a text to myself from the phone in portrait and landscape mode. Both sent, and both were received.

    my version is 0.2.7 is that different then yours or did you just write it in a different form?

    You can replicate by usign the phone in landscape mode usign the virtual keyboard only to type and send a text. Everything must be done in landscape mode (long ways)

    its pretty frustrating that they offer this as a real alternative, yet not only can it not push texts... it doesn't work half the time. i either get dropped calls, it tells me the text failed sending, or it wont even dial. but i've already switched all my contacts over and dont really want to go back. amazing potential, but far from living upto it at this point.

    Ok...I had been doing landscape w/hard keyboard. So, after doing landscape w/soft keyboard I do get force close. I then refresh the view and find four texts (2 sent by me; 2 received by me). Bad bug.

    However, I don't have any issues using landscape w/hard keyboard. No force close and only 2 texts (one sent, one received).

    Guess i never use the soft keyboard in landscape....always pull out the keyboard.

    My version no. is from using settings app, manage apps....

    I agree, I am canceling my service immediately, and asking them for a refund. We pay a lot of money for this amazing new, experimental service and it's not ready for prime time yet. Does anyone know Google's billing department number?

    I'm still on Android 2.0. Since the latest Google Voice update I have not been able to send a text in landscape if typing with the on-screen keyboard. Using the portrait on-screen keyboard or the physical keyboard works fine.
