    Wow, you people can be confusing.

    GV is not VOIP
    GV does use data for SMS and to initiate a phone call
    GV will use your cellular minutes making calls
    GV will NOT use your messages for SMS.

    SMS through GV will use all data and only data unless you have your SMS messages forwarded to your Cell. You can change this setting from the settings page on google.com/voice webpage.

    GV will use data to contact the GV servers to initiate a phone call. Google servers will then start the phone call on your phone dialing through GV servers. You can save a lot of money on calls if you still have TMO myfavs or ATT a list. You can set up your GV account so all GV calls use your GV number for incoming calls. Add your GV number as one of your fav #’s or a list and all those calls will be free.

    The latest GV app on Android disables SMS forwarding for that phone automatically now. You don't have to go to the website to disable it.

    I heard that was the case but I was getting double messaged up until a few days ago when I changed the settings online.

    Apology accepted.

    And I know the N1 will support AT&T 3G...as long as you buy the right one. :-)

    I'm not sure how you have your GV set up, but I don't use data as I have it blocked on my account.

    I have use GV since Oct 2009 and never used data at all.

    You may not be using the latest version. AFAIK, if you don't manually install GV over the stock version, you will not get update notifications in the future.

    For a second I thought you ve answered the question that brought me to this thread, but I still got the Q.

    Does SMS from /to my GV count against my plan? if not, can I then use GV SMS functionality without career SMS plan?

    IIRC, GV uses data for SMS, so if your plan is NOT unlimited, it will count against your data allotment (data plan), not your calling minutes (calling plan).
