google.com/voice
settings
click "voicemail and text"
uncheck the box that says: Text Forwarding:  Forward text messages to my email:
thanx it finally worked but on a desktop and I signed in to my regular email account then went to GV and went straight to the account. really odd that I couldn't sign in by GV directly cause it didn't recognize my email....

Anyone know if there is a feature that I can forward my Google voice number to my cell and then shut it when I am not in the mood of phone calls?

You can do that from the gv website, but there is also an app if you have a smart phone.

I am not in front of a computer, but something like this...go to google.com/voice, click in settings, click on the tab that says phone, or forwarding.  From there you can add a phone.

Choose a different number or area code.

Is there a way to have my GV# come up on caller id when I call without first dialing my GV# and calling through there?

If you have an android phone, you can set the GV app to automatically redirect your outgoing calls thru your GV #. The pain is, your call log has funny numbers.
