    I tested the forward to email option, and it still sends a copy to you handset as sms and then email too. So no way around that. unless you remove your number, but then no calls can be made.

    I dont see the "deliver SMS" option. I do see:
    SMS Forwarding Forward SMS messages to my email:

    which I believe is different from what you mention ealvnv

    ealvnv is right, I didn't think about that part, the incoming sms. Yes, it delivers to your verizon sms if you don't tell it to go to email.

    Good catch!

    The free calls thing is absoutely true with friends and family. If you are a big phone talker, this is a must have before VZW figures out how to stop it.

    But do you see that "deliver sms" option?


    I also see this, but not sure if anyone has unchecked the "receive sms on this phone" option.

    this is what im talking about, that will allow you to get your sms as email, where is say if you want your voice mail delivered as text your do not select any number and enable forwarding voicemail as email there is where some people get confused....

    lol yea but most people looking for free calling are on the low min like the OP is and that does him no good.. with VZW if you drop your voice its still 49.99 just for unlimited data

    Ah ok, thats what I have and I tried that email forwarding plus I unchecked receive sms on my phone and tested with a friend.

    Its working, I can reply by email but it turns out my number sends one text and my email sends a duplicate lol. Not sure if its because I'm replying to the email, maybe I should reply from the googlevoice app?
