    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

    Figured it out. I have a school discount which makes my account a public sector account, which aren't eligible for integration. Grr

    That's a bummer. I was wondering why it wouldn't work for you.

    Glad you got it figured out, but sorry that you are currently ineligible.

    The main thing that was holding me back from the integrating my GV# with my Sprint # is that I knew that GV text messaging didn't support MMS. Has that changed?

    Ditto. I want a fully functioning text messaging app, not just SMS only; that is why I am NOT integrating the two.

    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

    The MMS still goes through, it just lands in the stock text messaging app instead of Google Voice.
    Id rather have it that way

    Just did the GV thing and its awesome! Of course I show the wife and I just get the head shake and the typical "nerd" response. Deep down she is jealous. lol

    All seriousness, this is really nice. Just one thing I would like to be able to do is theme the look of it. I guess I take it.

    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 ...

    Any thoughts ?

    does anyone have any problems with transcription of the voicemail message? it really has not even been close to being accurate, just wondering if anyone else noticed this?

    Oh yeah, the GV transcriptions are basically hilarious in their accuracy. I have Vonage for my home phone and their transcriptions are much better.

    I for one love reading about "Georges magical scorpions trackpad walking trenchcoats" in GV transcriptions.

    Very frustrating. I have a 22 percent discount using my employer so they consider my line to be a "corporate account", no Google Voice for me. That seems silly...

    Must depend on the account. I have a 23% discount because of my employer and I was able to do the integration without a problem.

    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.
