    SMS pro is amazing and the gv integration is awesome. It no longer requires root access if you have stock rom by the way.

    Thanks. I can't wait to switch to Google voice now.
    So does mms work with GV and GoSMS then?

    or does it receive pics just fine but not text MMS?
    That only works for sprint users.

    I get MMS attachments as emails sometimes, but most of the time not. Test cases:

    Me: Galaxy Nexus with Google Voice on Verizon

    Friend 1: Blackberry Bold on Sprint, no Google Voice
    - When friend #1 sends me an MMS text I get a text message like this "<Subject: New Year's photo>", and an email in my Gmail account with the picture attachment.

    Friend 2: iPhone 5 on Verizon, no Google Voice
    - When friend #2 sends an MMS, I get nothing. No notification or email.

    I also never receive a Group Text message from iPhone users. :| My buddy's S3 on Verizon has the option to send group texts as "SMS files or Text." Sending via the SMS file setting doesn't come through to my GV account, with the other setting it comes through fine. I'm guessing Apple defaults to MMS when sending group texts.

    I realize it's been several months since you posted, but I'm curious how you set up your MMS. I'm also using Tmobile prepaid with my Google Voice number-

    People only have our gv number. Don't even have a texting plan. Don't text a lot with Google voice but it works well. Most of our friends use Touch or KiK which I like better than texting anyways.
