Google Voice+PushMail+iPhone=Free Unlimited Texting

— updated 01.23.09

Since I got my Google Voice (GV) number I have been trying to figure out a way to utilize one of the best features of it with my iPhone, free text messages. Though as my mama always said, life is like a box of…wait wrong mama…there is no free lunch. Every SMS message that I forward from GV, either sent or received, I get charged by  those rat bastards AT&T . I know there are applications such as TextPlus, Jelly SMS or AIM, but with those applications the other person must have the same app in order for the text to be sent and/or received, plus I have to recondition people to send me a text via whatever app that I am using or some other hokey method that most people wont care to use.

Just saw this and thougth I would pass it on. Google CEO stepped down from Apple board of directors. Not totally centered around the denial of the Google Voice app but it sounds like it does play a part in the whole corporate game to me. Here is the link to the article I read if you want to take a gander at it yourself.
