    I use my google voice/google account with Talkatone (VoIP caller and SMS sender) and I use GVConnect mainly for texts because talk atone has a clear button and I accidentally push it from time to time. GVConnect also works with talkatone. The only drawback was the lack of push notifications of texts/calls that happened right when someone would send me a text.. Luckily Boxcar works with GVConnect and sends you the notification.

    It's kind of confusing setting it all up, but I'm kinda picky...
    To just get by.. Try using Talkatone with a google account... It does the job

    YOU ARE TEARIN ME APART, LISA!

    Thanks for the details, but, looks like, this service is only for US, I live in India, so need to know any such service available.

    Thanks,

    Yes on 12th OS5 is coming with which have over 200 new cool features 1 of which will be iMessage which will allow you to send messages to other iPod/iPhone/iPad users. It's a messaging service exclusively for iOS users (irrespective of which device they're rocking), which comes with delivery and read receipts, an indicator for when the other party is typing, and the ability to push messages to all your devices. Kinda, sorta like BBM. You'll be able to send messages, photos, videos, and contacts. Group messaging will also be available. It works over either WiFi or 3G and looks to be making good use of Apple's new push notifications. I am Not sure though if it is cross platform as in Blackberry or HTC though, but I for 1 cannot wait as I currently use Pingchat & if this works better then I will most certainly be deleting it & this will be it's replacement :)

    Textplus is my favorite for text only. You can get your own Textplus number as well. I've used it on multiple platforms and it works nicely.

    Whistle is not bad for free ad-based VOIP phone calls. I've only used it is the USA but it did come in handy when giving a phone number to a questionable source that required it before providing information I needed. That company followed up with spam calls and they had quite a surprise. :D
