    Handcent. So customizable. I'll never use anything else

    Best thing is to try them out yourself...your the only one that knows what's best for you. If you don't like them delete them. I use Handcent

    I've tried Go, Chomp, Stock, and Handcent, and I keep going back to Handcent. It's the best, hands down. But you should try them all, some fit better for others.

    Another handcent user here.

    I love that I can have a different tone, icon, and background per contact.

    I started with Handcent then got annoyed that sometimes the pop up would not be the current message but the prior text message so then went to chomp and after a few days realized I was not receiving or sending out several texts so then tried Go Sms worked for a few days then just would not send my messages, so like everyone else im back to Handcent..

    Handcent. Gosms might be better, if it had more features. When I tried out Gosms, none of my received messages showed up. Instantly forcing me to delete it.
