I just got my doird x for Christmas. I have been looking for a few weeks on here about the handcent app because my wife and I like the "smileys" (pictures not symbols). I notices as soon as I downloaded the hadncent app my droid got slower. Is there a way to fix this? Also hwo do I make handcent the default SMS? I have unchecked all the marks for the standard SMS app that comes on the dx but when I go into the handcent app I have nto found a way to make this my default SMS app. Can anyone shed some light on this for me.
If rooting is the only way to go to increase the speed, I'm not sure I am comfortable doing that yet since i have not had a chance to read and research the root process.
Any help would be appriciated.
