    Is there a way to be able to send & receive SMS from your Droid via Google Voice so that VZW does not charge you?

    I have a new Google Voice account and send text messages from GV but it seems it still get charged to my VZW number as data usage

    if you send texts within the google voice client it should be free.

    make sure you turn off sms forwarding to your phone though via google voice in your browser so u are not charged for receiving text either. You then will only get texts through 3g

    I was told people could invite other people. Do mind giving out one of your invites to me? Can I send you a PM with my e-mail? But yes there is a way. I have seen video's on it...it should be built into the app. :)

    Sorry no invite capability yet...and I bought my invites on ebay, paid $3 for mine

    There's a thread on this forum that people post when they have invites. You might want to check there.
