    Default Force native SMS application to use Google Voice?

    Is there any way to force the native SMS application to use Google Voice? I believe there is something if you have a rooted device, but I am looking for something that does not require rooting.

    I'd like to do this too.

    Why not simply just use Google Voice for texting, and ignore the native app? The only time I use the native app is when pics are transmitted. And I expect Google to upgrade Voice to handle MMS soon.

    Does it matter WHY?

    The reason is that certain functionality only works with the native messaging application, e.g., voice control.

    A couple examples: I'm trying to set SmartActions to text my google voice number (which forwards to my google mail) to remind me to charge my phone if it gets below a certain percentage (SmartActions has the option to text but none to use email, hence the workaround). I'd like to use GV to send the text so I don't have to pay for it. In addition, SmartActions has an option to "auto-reply" to text messages (for example, if you are driving, you could have it auto-reply that you will reply when you reach your destination as you don't drive and text). This also uses the native text messaging app.
