    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

    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. :)

    I have turned off the sms notification but not the email to my gmail account. I still kept the gv sms notification on....let me check a bit more but I noticed sms charges on my vzw account from my gv # to my mobile#...they were all received

    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.
