I love Handcent SMS over the stock texting (originally I thought what could be wrong the texting is threaded and it looks fine, but you were all right and I realize that now).
My issue is that it can't play nicely with the time stamps. It either stamps texts with the wrong time (Wrong by hours minutes, days sometimes). It also will put them out of order chronologically if it messes up the timestamp. For example say I have two text threads from 5 pm and 6 pm. I get a new text at 7 pm, but it time stamps it with say 4 pm. The two read messages would ques up at the top with the NEW unread text showing up third in the list. Make sense?
Anyway ... is there anyway to fix this? I'm running the leaked Froyo rooted from P3Droid and still ODEX'd
