    I am just curios how all those with google voice numbers which of the many methods do you use for texting? From what I know I know these ways to text with google voice:

    1. From the Google Voice app
    2. From texts forwarded to gmail
    3. using 406 numbers
    4. From the mobile google voice website

    if there are others please share, I used to use the google voice app and unlike others i thought i got the texts fairly quick but now there seems to be a pretty big delay. Could be my rom i use or idk but it seems to have slowed down getting texts through the app so now I am usign 406 numbers.

    I prefer the email route... for starters now I don't have to have the GV app 'checking' for messages every so often. I have GV forward all my txts to my email so I get them instantly and just respond in my email app (currently k-9). This way it stays threaded (at least 'in' gmail, though k-9 doesn't display the threads correct, the default app does).

    Any reason why you don't use the default gmail app and use k9 instead?

    k-9 gives more control/options for fowarding and replying and has not length limit for the signature (gmail app won't (or at least didn't) allow for a confidentiality statement). Also there was no way to turn the threading/tabbing off which made sorting through a conversation a bit of a PIA. If they fix those issues I'd consider going back.

    I use handcent & just add a 406 # to each contact that i text often. I used the GV app for a few weeks but just couldn't stand it anymore so I had to go back to handcent and just add a new number.

    I just use the GV app for no other reason than I have not looked into and tried the other methods.
