I recently got the Mo+ GV iPhone app to replace talkatone and it's a thousand times better. The problem is is that when I'm logged in (It connects to GTalk/voice) my gmail status is changed to an annoying ad. something like "I'm using Mo+ get it now at blah blah", and I know a lot of other apps do this too. Is there a way to disable this from happening? (Its not in the app settings)

There is no way to disable Google Talk status changes by third party apps, so stop using Mo+ GV and start using Google's Google Voice app with something like Sipgate (see this article). If an app doesn't let you stop its shameless self-promotion, stop using it.

Or, you know, pay for it. You want apps for free the dev's gotta pay the bills somehow. –  Al E. Dec 16 '12 at 6:23
