Thanks for the update. I might give that app a look. Handcent never even responded to my email.
I've been using Go SMS Pro for the past few days and I like it well enough so far. I still like Handcent a little better, probably because it's what I've been using for so long, but Go SMS Pro is still a huge improvement over the stock app.
So now I've been using Go SMS Pro for a week and a half or so and I've noticed over the past couple of days I'm not getting message notifications all the time. I've decided to ditch Go SMS for the stock messaging app again. I guess I'll just stick with it until Handcent gets their act back together.
Hmm, I've been using it for about as long without any problems so far. Still would probably favor Handcent, but this unresolved issue along with their lack of response to inquiries about fixing it has left me with a bad taste in my mouth. Will probably stay with Go SMS Pro unless I start running into issues as well. Good luck.
