I have Google Voice and love the GV app. I also like to use my online Google account for sms and calls, and also added the GV link on my home screen... But like everyone else I'm kind of wondering if the sms are free or they count against your text messaging plan?
08-11-2009, 05:35 PM #172
Will they add notification? When i get a text i get no vibe or bubble? Am i missing something?
08-11-2009, 11:43 PM #173Please help
Got invited email from google last week. Downloaded GV mobile but got "An error occurred while trying to establish a connection with Google Voice." when trying to make a call, text, or voicemail. I am using it on a 3GS. I love the app but could get it to work. Very frustrated. Anyone with the same problem on their 3gs? Please help

"BEWARE OF GOOGLE VOICE SERVICE, TEXTS AND CALLS ARE NOT FREE OF CHARGE"
Well I got the answer to the question I asked from my last post of 08/07/2009. The Hard way!!! Be careful guys & gals, it so happens that all the calls and sms send or received from your Google Voice account is going to count against your minutes/text messaging plan!!! No matter if you send txts from within the Google Voice website or the new GV Mobile App. If you have unlimited text your fine. But unlike me, I only have the 200 text plan per month and thankfully the 900 any time minutes per month. Check this out, my monthly plan starts every 27th of the month, today is only the 12th. I started using GV on 08/08, had my texts intact since I hardly text and now 08/12/2009 all my 200 texts are gone, plus 471 of my anytime minutes are all gone thanks to Google text and voice mail notifications... Now I had to download iBlacklist and even MCleaner from Cydia (Thanks For Cydia always to the rescue) to block my Google Voice number and along with that (406) area code used by Gooogle for Voicemail notifications/Text. Those notifications kept on coming and coming, they are really a nuisance. I still like the service. I just hate the thought that they lied saying that all calls placed from there service was free! Ya Right! But that's what I get for trying to abuse the system... It backfired.lol

Actually no you don't need an actual phone plan, all you need is a data plan and i insist: you can call AT&T and cancel your voice plan and keep only a data plan.
Then you go get fring from the Apple store and register a gizmo account on that fring, forward your GV number to your gizmo number and there you go, you dial using the app and you receive calls on gizmo through you GV number.
If you don't want 3GS you can still make it work with WIFI only. without any plans at all.

That's all fine and dandy, but it doesn't change the fact that Google Voice (by itself) is NOT A VOIP service.
THE WHOLE POINT OF GOOGLE VOICE IS TO USE YOUR ACTUAL HOME/OFFICE/CELL PHONE, ALL UNDER ONE NUMBER (provided by Google!). Just where exactly did you get the bright idea that Google Voice gave you free talk/text through your regular phone?
You guessed it! You can DISABLE TEXT FORWARDING! That way you can keep all text messages sent/received on Google Voice in Google Voice and not use any of your actual plan texts.

For anyone who is looking for push notifications for sms/voicemail for your google voice account, someone put together some python scripts to do it. You'll need prowl ($2.99 in the app store), and your own computer/server that's always on, but it's a great way to stick it to at&t and get rid of your text plan.

I made some modifications to fix a bug and include support for voicemail notifications, but as I just finished it the original author hasn't included my changes, so if you want those, check the second page of the thread for my update.
