    It seems like my Google voice app gets slower as the day goes on. I use it for my voicemails and texting. Has anybody noticed this? Should I reinstall?

    Sometimes Google Voice is just slow. It's not unusual for GV texts to be delayed 5 minutes or more.

    I don't think this has anything to do with your X.

    A quick question. Do you guys think that I could disconnect my message services and just have google voice text message?

    Not if you text to any short codes, or if you use the mobile text option of the IM services like AIM. Google Voice doesn't support them.

    If by message services you mean texting with Verizon, then yes, thats what I do on 2 phones. I haven't used any minutes or texts at all.

    If you mean messaging services such as Yahoo, or AIM, then no.

    I would definitely uninstall and reinstall, and if that doesn't work, I would contact Google support.

    Try this:

    Menu->Settings->Applications->Manage Applications->Google Voice->Clear Data.

    I just came to realize recently that the phone gets slow down because application cache / data buildup. Yes, "Clean Cache" app helps. But I dont think it cleans application cache as thorough as this manual visit. Other than that, I've been using GV for over a year and happy with most of the features...

    ok. you might want to review everything:

    1. login gv from a PC,
    . make sure the "Do-not-Disturb" is not checked;
    . make sure your cell # checked as forward #;
    . review other settings (as I dont remember what they are, :) ) and make sure they are not the causes;

    2. if you continue to experience problems, I would reinstall GV, or the entire ROM (is your phone rooted?).

    Hope it helps.
