In Google Voice, I can search for a phone number and see all the calls and text messages with that phone number.

How can I limit the search to just text messages? I tried using adding in:text similarly to email search mechanisms but I got nothing in the results.

In the search box add in:sms to limit the results to just text messages:

> 2125551212 in:sms

The above will search for all text messages with the phone number (212) 555-1212.

You can also add other Gmail like search terms, such as date limiters, e.g., before:2016-08-01 after:2016-06-15.
