So I got the email today and tried to integrate my number into GV. It said that my account wasn't eligible. I called in to see what the deal was and the tech told me that GV integration was only for "Nexus" devices. I've seen that people have integrated there GV with their EVOs in the beta, so I'm guessing this is bull. Any ideas? I'm probably going to head up to the store to see what they have to say
Pretty lame that the google voice integration doesn't work with public sector discounts. I have a 24% discount with my credit union and they consider it a government sector account. GV isn't worth giving up 24% discount but i still want it
Well I just switched my account over. Still doesn't work yet, but I'm sure that's just lag on their side. Probably gotta wait a day for my account to reset to private. I only had a 10% discount so it was worth it to me. And it was actually very painless to do. Took literally 8 minutes
Ya know both me and my fiance have Evo's , myself the og evo and he has the shift and I tend to wonder if maybe Google voice will help with that ever dreaded sms issue that u get sometimes when u are sending / receiving messages at the same time. Ya it sucks that the mms messages get sent to another folder, but I'm sure that's something that's in the works in further updates ...
for those that are reluctant to integrating the two, mms like others have said still goes through to the stock mms app. if you set up txts to forward to your cell phone then mms and sms will come through to the stock app.
I integrated mine and have been using ChompSMS, the drawback is though, as of now, in order to not get 2 notifications every time i get a txt message I had to turn off notifications for google voice. Not a big deal, as I just have google voice send me a txt to inform me when I get voicemail instead now.
