Re: Downsides to google voice?
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.
