    I'm sorry if this is the wrong forum. Kind of a complicated topic. Please move it mods if it needs to be!:D

    Okay, so I'm planning on getting Nexus 7 tablet. Still waiting on the press conference tomorrow....but....assuming I still get the Nexus 7, I was wondering if there's a way I can get universal texting? I have a Google Voice number along with my ATT number what is with an iPhone 4s.. But I kind of want the ability to receive texts on the nexus 7 and reply to them. But considering iMessage won't ever been on Android devices....any options?

    Can you set it up so the AT&T number forwards everything to the Google Voice number?

    Yeah, I haven't figured it out yet either.

    What does your comment have to do with the thread?:confused:

    It has everything to do with the iPhone. I like messaging from my iPhone, but in case I'm on a tablet (assuming there's no $299 iPad Mini) then I'm trying to figure what options I have.

    What's app is the only thing I can thing of that would run on all devices... Certainly not the solution you're looking for. Sorry
