    I had google voice before (on the same number) but it messed up my sprint iMessage - I used to be able to send and receive SMS (e.g. android devices) and iMessage texts from my Macs and all iDevices. When i installed GV, I lost that ability so i uninstalled it. afterward, I was able to only able to send and receive iMessages on my Mac/iDevices and not SMS's (unless it was on my iPhone.)

    just wanted to know if I install GV now will that problem. reason being is I'm getting a LOT of spam because my number is listed on google maps for my business.

    secondly, id like to know if iMessage still supports SMS (to non-iPhones) or has that function been lost.

    You're going to have a separate GV number from your iPhone number?

    Messages can definitely send iMessage or SMS but I don't know the effect of a GV number. My GV number is separate.

    It's difficult to find reliable, up-to-date info on Google Voice issues.
