    Works great, I use it for my side business, only thing is you don't know if the call coming in is to your personal phone or the Google Voice. So I let the business ones go to voicemail and then call them back, luckily it's not urgent for them to pick up.

    Hmmm that really sucks. How about text messages ?

    Text messages will come in through the Google Voice app and you can have them forwarded via SMS to your actual phone number and/or email as well. Google Hangouts can also be used to actually receive and place calls (and I believe texts) using your Google Voice number.

    It should work for that. Just make sure that if you are calling someone back you do it through Google Voice (or Google Hangouts that would be linked to your Google Voice).

    Yeah, even simpler in a sense by just doing it from within the Google Voice (or the Google Hangouts) app.
