    This may be a dumb question, I tried searching, and everything I saw mentioned google voice (which I believe requires to change your number in a way, right?). What my issue is, is at work I get a spotty 1x 1 bar. Kills the battery and often fail sending texts. To prevent my battery from dying, I have it connected through USB to my pc. With my old windows mobile vx6800, I know you could set the phone to take an IP from the computer.. Is there a way to do that so I can send texts from my phone(my phone number)?

    Thanks

    That's not the way text messaging works, so no.

    With Google Voice you can send a text through computer, or you can do it with Verizon. https://text.vzw.com/customer_site/jsp/messaging_lo.jsp

    Why is VOIP in the thread subject line?

    Most of the features require that you switch to using the Google Voice number.

    This is one of the big reasons I use GV. Forwarding goes to my cell and my landline at work. I can choose to answer calls on either phone (and even transfer, if needed). I also send and receive SMS via the GV site on my PC at work.
