Voicemail SMS Messaging question

Post by AzJazz » Wed May 26, 2010 11:21 am

I have configured my ooma to send an SMS message when a voicemail arrives.

My question is this: Can I have the SMS message go to my Google Voice number? I didn't see it in the provider drop-down list. It sure would be nice, since I'm on a limited SMS plan, and GV SMS is free ...

To go around the problem, one could use SMS through email; example phonenumber@txt.att.net or @mms.att.net
But I see that GV doesn't support SMS through email yet.
