As far as I know, I own no stock in Google or Sprint.
OK, here's a preview of what you get when someone from Sprint sends a text message "OK" to a certain Google Voice number.
I have went back and requested the Sprint customer to write to another Google Voice account and the conversation went as intended, without Text to Landline. Then I tried again using the other, original GV number, and the problem persisted. I made the Sprint customer delete me as a contact on her phone and add me again. No avail. I even tried disabling Gizmo 5 and it had no effect. This has been happening since last evening. I wonder if Google or Sprint will answer my calls... on Twitter.
