    Hi, I just set up google voice and I love it. One thing that has been bothering me is that whenever anyone texts me, I get it in my message app and my google voice app. Is there a way to only get the message on my google voice app?

    Also, how do I know which number I'm sending from when I send a text?

    You probably have the "message forwarding" indicator on. If you log into GV on your browser/desktop and go into Settings > Voicemail & SMS > and see if you have your SMS being forwarded to your phone. If you do, turn that off. That'll eliminate the double messages.

    Yeah that doesn't sound like too long of a wait.

    After waiting 4 weeks, I broke down and bought one for under $2 on ebay. Of course, the following week my Google invite came through and I gave it to a friend.

    Back on OP...
    There's no setting as you mention (and others have too) in the settings. Only to have it forwarded to email. I too have been looking in to this issue.

    Any other ideas?

    Settings, Phones, Edit the entry for your droids number.

    Uncheck "Receive SMS on this phone".

    Thanks guys. Now when I'm on my phone, the only notification I will get that I have a text or a voicemail is in the google voice app. Correct?

    I do not see this feature. Am I doing something wrong? I actually don't see anything about SMS in my settings. I am trying to use GV for sms.

    Make sure your phone is listed as a mobile phone...non-mobile phones won't list an SMS option. But yes, settings-->phones-->edit should give you a check box to uncheck.
