Google Voice and Default SMS App
For those using Google Voice on the Incredible, is there a way to get SMS to my Verizon number to go to Google Voice instead?
I gave most people my new GV number but there are still some texting my VZW phone number.
Probably not possible, but just curious.

Google voice uses your data connection to send and receive sms through the GV app. to your GV number. You are carrier independent. Everything is handled through an SSL connection with the google servers.

OK, I have a question. Now that I have GV, I like people using my GV number to call and text me at. My GV app works fine receiving SMS messages. But I'm still receiving a text in my Messages app from the GV number telling me I have a text. I don't want messages going here as I read and respond to them through the GV app. How do I stop these texts going to my Messages app?
Do I go into GV on the web and uncheck receives SMS on this phone? I'm still unclear of what this option does...
Sorry for sounding like a noob. GV is a cool program/feature, but still a bit confusing on me where GV starts and my VZW service stops lol. Thanks so much everyone!!

Any of you guys using Google Voice also using the SMS Popup app? I was using this with the standard messaging app and loved it (came from an iPhone, loved those popups, old habits die hard lol).
However, it doesn't seem to work with Google Voice. Based on searching it seems like it's supposed to but I can't figure it out.
Wondering if anyone out there has experience with it.
