Re: Sending Google Voice messages through default messaging app
So you've already seen the downfall of recieving Google Voice messages in the Messaging app. In order to for the Messaging app to differentiate between your carrier # and Google Voice #, the phone needs to put a second contact # on each contact entry. This way, the phone knows what # to send the SMS from. Think of it as a forwarding number or a middle-man number. If you select the contact's actual #, then it comes from your carrier #. If you select their "randomly" assigned #, then it comes from your Google Voice #.
