I am currently trying to cut expenses so that I can more quickly pay off my student loans, so I sold my iPhone 4 and cut my data plan. It will save my wife and I a sizable chunk of change every month. That said, texting on my replacement phone is difficult at best. I am basically at home or work and both have wifi so I didn't need the data capabilities of the iPhone since I have an iPad that I take with me. I have heard that I could utilize Google Voice to send my texts to me as emails, allowing me to respond from my iPad using either GV Connect or Messenger for Google Voice. Can this be done and has anyone here done this? Frankly, reviewing the specifics on Google, I wasn't able to find any clarification, or it was slightly confusing. Any thoughts? And thanks for the input.
