As you know, Handcent SMS is *THE* most popular messaging suite on the Android Market. Even better, Handcent is and always will be free! No doubtedly, many of you are already Handcent users. Because Handcent SMS is free and offers a wide array of extensive features that allow you to circumvent the limitations of your wireless carriers at the expense of the Handcent team, the Handcent team relies on a small advertisement banner as well as donations to offset these costs and support future developments. To offset costs of their bandwidth-hogging features, Handcent offers a few premium services through low-cost donation and subscription options for those particular additional features.
