I've tested this on several occasions but now I can't remember the results lol. I know I wasn't happy with them, but that may be because I'm not super impressed with gvoice anyway.

I love having FREE texting with Google Voice. I don't love being restricted with the Google Voice texting function its app. It is bad. Can't I at the very least group the messages by contact not date like in the stock app???? Google needs to gives us more options with this.

And with Their Google Talk app as well!

The only way I know of to send texts out that come from your google number without using the google voice app is to text the number that google voice sets to each contact when they text/call you.

I.e. Enable SMS forwarding.

If you using the GV app then SMS is sent via your GV number. If you use any other app, it's sent via your VZW number. Unless you have forwarding enabled and you reply to a message forwarded from GV (via a 406 number), as JoeeDB mentioned.
