    You have to send the text from within the Google Voice app, not the phone's messaging app. I assume when you clicked on her number the phone routed you the native messaging app.

    Perhaps, but those "sheep" will likely find their future-proofed phones are missing critical bands, like my first LTE phone, a Pantec Burst, that only had bands 4 and 17. I didn't get much "future...

    Red Pocket is real cell service. TextNow is essentially a less sketchy version of FreedomPop. :)

    TextNow uses a cellular data connection when no WiFi is available to place calls over VoIP, just like Google Voice works; TextNow uses its own app ("TextNow") to make calls and texts over any data...

    The bigger issue for the OP is that he will not be using actual cellular calls/text, but plans to use the TextNow app/service that uses VoIP over WiFi and/or cellular (Sprint MVNO) data.

    No, I don't have a problem with the amount of free data, particularly because T-Mo is offering a good deal for families that run out or need more: 100GB/month for $12.

    It has a cost of "up to" $10.7 billion, over the 10-year life of the program.

    As far as being "selfish" for not supporting the program, that's not my call to make. But I am curious if anyone here...

    Yes, Google Voice requires WiFi or cellular data, but so does Dingtone. It's just like Google Voice, TextNow*, TextFree, Text me, Text+, or any other "free calls and texts" app.

    What I meant by a "real" expiration data was that one set of codes they gave us a few weeks ago actually expired at the end of week even if unused, as explained in the promo terms and conditions.
