Texting on android?....?

Postby radbourne » Sat Sep 01, 2012 9:05 pm

Okay i have a android tablet but no phone.so found out you can get free texting apps. I installed textplus and it worked for about a month then all tha sudden quit working and nobody im texting are getting my texts. A couple weeks later i got a text from the textplus company saying ...( we are sorry if you have had trouble texting it should work now blah blah blah..) but it dosnt. I need a text app that will let me text from my android device to any cell phone. But i can only find apps that snd texts to the person if the have the same app. Understand? Anyway i need help finding a good app :-) thx:-) :-) :-)

Google Voice allows texting to regular phones (the other person doesn't need any special app). I use it on my wifi-only tablet. The only requirement is that you have to link your free Google Voice account to a real cell phone number. If you don't want the number to ring through to the cell phone you can set GV to forward to some other number or just go to voicemail.

There are plenty of other useful reasons to get a free Google Voice number:
