    I have a good number, I have had it for a long time. I set up a Gmail account right around the same time. I have had some issues with the account so I set up a new account Gmail account and had that one for a while now. When Google hangouts dropped the sms I was upset just like everyone else.

    I just transferred my gv number to my newest account. When I went into Google hangouts I saw that I could text from my gv number in hangout. I thought it was weird. So today I went into my hangout and I was no longer able to send text that option was gone.

    I am wondering now if I transfer my gv number to my old account and back to my new account if the sms message will be there where I text from my gv number. What should I do? What do you think is happening?

    Just my opinion...

    I would just suggest that you simply download and install the Google Voice app.

    It seems to work well for send text messages from your Google Voice number and Receiving Text Messages to your Google Voice number.

    The Hangouts Dialer app sends texts from your GV number (and voice calls too, of course). You need the regular Hangouts app installed for it to work.

    I have done that I am able to send but the messages go to my default message app how would I change my default messenger Google Dialer?
