|Google Voice SMS and Tasker Profile Activation||V-Player||9/26/10 11:40 AM|
I have a profile where if someone sends me a text message it will
activate a profile unfortunately I use google voice for texting so I
was wondering is there a way to do this without using texting from my
carrier and google voice instead.

google voice, so I have
no idea how the texting integrates. But when I get round to looking at
GV I'll see
if I can get the SMSs working (it's on the todo list as mentioned).

Let me simplify my question, I want to make %SMSRF with google voice
as well as the carrier's texting.

You can't. At least not until Pent adds support for Google Voice's
text messaging capability to Tasker.

I have the same problem.
We hope Pent will put this in the todo-list.

Next version Tasker will support variable replacements in plugin
the Steelgirder dev will make the needed changes on his side soon,
it's pretty simple.

Definitely need this.
I was hoping Steelgirderdev's plug-in would let me use %SMSRF to auto-
reply to people texting me on my Verizon number to ask them to switch
to my GV number (as I am not paying for a texting plan) (and reply
using the outgoing GV SMS)
A month later...hopefully something soon. In the meantime, I guess
I'll spend the 20 cents/message to reply via Verizon SMS in Tasker.
We also need some way to pull info from the incoming GV SMS, but I
guess that's also on Steelgirderdev's side of things.

If so, then I may have something soon on that side.

Unfortunately I don't see GV SMS in the android text message
app...only in the GV app.
I could configure my GV account (online) to forward to the standard
messaging app...but that negates a major point of using GV for SMS.
I want to avoid paying Verizon the 20 cents/msg or paying for a flat-
rate message plan when GV SMS is free.

> Unfortunately I don't see GV SMS in the android text messageOh, someone else told me they saw the messages in their messaging app.
They must've been forwarding.
Well in that case I don't think it's possible unforturnately, without
polling the GV account
online. I couldn't find anything on how the Google Voice app stores
