Receiving SMS from 406 or 972 numbers
We know that many guys are receiving sms online with Google Voice, and you can of coure check your messages online in your Google Voice interface. When you send sms online through your Google Voice, the SMS seems to be sent from your Google Voice number. However, when someone sends a SMS to your Google Vocie number and you have set it to forwared to your mobile number, the sended number will not show your Google Voice number or his Google Voice number. The number will show from 1-406-xxx-xxxx or 1-972-xxx-xxxx).
In fact, there has been a great of discussion about the GV 406 or 972 number. If you see 406 number in your contact. but you do not seem to send message to this number. So how to take most from the 406 number?
Here is some of my ideas to take full use of 406 number
1. Add the 406 numbers in contacts
2. Put the 406 aliases in the contacts – automatically
3. Add the 3rd CallerID option of letting us receive the call with the 406 number shown
4. Give us the ability to assign a 406 number to a contact (so they don’t have to call us the first time to create the alias)
