    So I've been running into an SMS issue the past few days and I was wondering if anyone had run into the same problem. My wife sent me an SMS a couple of days ago and it overflowed into two messages, the notification came up as per normal and I replied to it with biteSMS's quick reply function. Since then I have gotten a notification for the second part of the overflow message about 3 or 4 times in two days, after already dismissing it. It seems to be somewhat random as to when it pops up. Any thoughts?

    I've never had this problem. Try re-installing the gv package.

    It's done it a few more times now, with different text messages. Often an old SMS will pop up right after I hang up a call, and then Springboard will crash and respring in safe mode.

    It's a tweak that allows you to send and receive Google Voice SMS messages through your default SMS app (usually Apple's "Messages", but in the case of those who have biteSMS and have it set to default, then biteSMS).

    Does the extension automatically reply with whatever SMS carrier received the text? For example, if I receive a text through my carrier, will it send the reply through the carrier automatically? If I receive a text through Google Voice, will it reply using Google Voice automatically?

    No. If you have the GV Extension plug-in turned on, and you reply, it will be through google voice. There is a button that gets added to sbsettings so you can quickly turn it on and off though. You just have to remember which number the text was sent to, your carrier's or GV. You can add a signature at the end of the message to give you a visual cue.
