I want one phone number to use for talk and text, and I want to be able to send and receive texts on my iPhone or from my Mac without using a browser or a second phone number. Currently, Google Voice does this, but it looks like Google is merging Google Voice into Hangouts this spring, and 3rd party apps will no longer work. GAH!

What are my options?

The problem is that it's really cumbersome--I dial my Google Voice number from my iPhone, enter my PIN code, PAUSE, press 2 to place a call, PAUSE, enter the 13 digit phone number, PAUSE, and finally get through. Does anyone know a way to automate this? Is there a way to store frequently dialed numbers or otherwise get through the menus faster?
