    You need to text message THROUGH the Google Voice application in order for your number to appear via SMS.

    Or the other option is to get each contacts 406 number (by having them call your Google Voice number) and then sending a text message to that 406 number will come from your Google Voice number on their phone. Note that this option uses text messages while the first option uses data.

    you don't need another account. Just go to your google voice account online.

    Click settings, then phones (should be the first one clicked anyway)

    In there you have the option to "Enable Google Voicemail on this phone"

    Exactly. It'll give you instructions to call a number I think.

    Anyone help me?

    I opened my GV account without selecting a Google number. It seems that SMS won't work (using the data plan) without this and I can't seem to find a way to add it. Can I change the settings, set up another GV account or am I SOL?
