    Google Voice is becoming the future, and I would like to keep my Google Voice number as universal as possible. I've taken every course of action to make it my primary phone number, from getting Nimbuzz setup with my Gizmo account, from replacing the SMS app with the GV Mobile app.

    But a full mod for that seems to be a much better and more effective solution. What do you guys think?

    I was just going to post a request for this - not necessarily a mod of the original SMS app, but even just a clone of the SMS app for google voice SMS. I have an iPod touch, so the google voice app is mostly useless, except for SMS (the dialer is functionless, because I can dial straight from my normal cell phone. So, especially for iPod touch users, an SMS-only app would be more useful.

    I would love a separate SMS app for GV Mobile. If it had push notifications, that would be even better.

    I wonder if Apple would approve such App. There have been so much about Apple <> Google <> AT&T

    Well, I don't know about the stock SMS application, but TextNow can be used with Google Voice.

    It has push, and sends / receives pretty quick.
    I strongly recommend this application for texting (And Google Voice).... Saves me $15 a month.
    A nice update is coming hopefully within the next 3 weeks for it.

    I suppose you can just change the icon for TextNow to the regular SMS icon?
