Here is how it works for free SMS, sing in to your google voice account on a pc (www.google.con/voice), under settings select deliver SMS via email, that way you get them as an email, you will be able to reply via email, or open google voice app on the phone, menu address book, and SMS using google voice, that's it.

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
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....
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?
