    I have a quick question, hopefully some one here is able to answer.

    With GV set up, i now receive 2 notifications for text messages and VM. Is there away to stop this, as it gets annoying to open 2 separate apps to answer one VM or Text.

    Sorry if this has been answered before. I have been searching every where for over 2 hours now, with no answers in sight. please help

    Oh, BTW i have a samsung epic with stock 2.2.1 EC05, rooted. Thank you in advance for all the help.
    I turned off the notifications in the Google Voice app and then went to the website settings and turned on the SMS notification for Voicemail. Until Google updates the Google Voice app to have more robust notification options, that's about all you can do to mitigate the problem.

    Yes, go to google.com/voice and change your notification settings to eliminate voicemail notifications (uncheck all boxes).

    Done.

    Seriously?

    What's wrong with the notifications? Mine are instant, without relying on an annoying SMS. Are you running a CDMA phone that can't get data while on a call or something?

    Any word if there is any way to get texts SENT from the GV page on your computer to land on your phone's SMS app? I'd like to have all sent/received messages be synchronized without having to use the Google Voice app for my texting.

    Yeah, hopefully Google can work on that. I know the OS must have an internal database where it stores the "regular" texts because you can go back and forth between Handcent and stock app and it has the same text messages. Handcent even displays old messages from before I installed the app.

    So maybe Google can update the Voice app to use that database.

    The problem arises when people want to use their own SMS app, like Handcent or something, to send and receive texts. The Google Voice app only has all notifications either on or off, so some people (including me) would rather deal with no notification of SMS or VM through Google Voice and just receive Handcent notifications, so an SMS or Email when a new VM arrives is a decent workaround.

    Ideally, though, I would like only VM notifications through the Google Voice app, and SMS notifications through Handcent.

    Unfortunately, Google Voice cannot be enabled on this Sprint phone. Please contact Sprint for more details as to why this cannot be enabled.

    Just got an email from Google to integrate my Sprint phone with Google. But when I "check eligibility" I get the above message.

    When I called the Sprint tech, she said that this was because the Google Voice integration only works on Nexus phones, not other Sprint phones as the advertising says, and I have a HTC EVO 4G which will not work.

    Wondering if anyone else heard anything like this?

    Call back and get somebody that has a clue. That tech doesn't know what she's talking about. It works fine with the EVO. She has it backwards, actually. It won't work with Nextel phones on the iDEN network (which Sprint owns). It will only work on Sprint-branded phones running on the CDMA Sprint network, and only for post-paid (traditional) customers, not pre-paid.

    What, exactly, are you looking to do as far as the notifications are concerned? You can disable notifications in the GV app or disable SMS forwarding and SMS VM notifications in GV.

    As it stands, not unless you're copying yourself. For messages to appear in your SMS app of choice a message has to be sent to your device. If you have a feature request then submit it directly to Google or promote one if it exists already.

    Back when the option to place calls from Gmail was first released I made a call to my bank's automated system just to see it in action and haven't used it since. Now, when I'm trying to integrate my Sprint number, I click on Google Voice and it brings me into a profile I never knew existed.

    I'm still only seeing the "port your number for $20" option when I put in my number. I was under the impression this was live at this point, but I've seen it written here that it may not really be live until the Nexus S is available for sale. Has anyone else, especially an Evo owner, been able to integrate outside of the beta invitees? Could my previous experience have messed things up for me?

    Not sure if this relates to you but I've read reports that the Sprint/GV integration is not available for business or educational Sprint accounts.

    PS - Just got off the phone with a Sprint rep who indicated that they're having some trouble with this integration, specifically with Evos. I don't know if this is correct or not, but I've seen it posted here (and a comment that the person didn't know what they were talking about).

    It is a little hard to believe that the online sign-up would know that I am an Evo user, but that's what I'm being told.

    No, the only education I was doing back then was self-education . I'm just a plain old Sprint customer hoping to check this out for myself. I guess I'll try again anther day.
