    Another option is the Verizon Messenger which is free, too. It has a few customizations, but a nice feature it has is the ability to save/backup/restore text messages.

    tried GO didnt like it as much as handcent but its definitly a preference so try both. A thing to note is I see/hear more and more people getting nervous about GO apps with security.

    Also https://market.android.com/details?id=com.handcent.nextsms.skin.darkness this skin makes everything black and it looks great.
    Again preference I like my phone being mostly black menu/settings/blah blah. Also then go in and customize the look yourself I usually go with a just text look and black background.Best Text Messaging App??-example-handcent-sms.png something like this. Although i have changed to light blue now to go with my ICS theme MavROM v3

    Just use the mybackup app to backup your texts no matter what you use.

    Has anyone found one that you can set a quiet time for? I can't set my phone to silent, as I need to get calls at night, but SMS messages are annoying me. I've looked at several and none give me an option to shut notifications off between certain hours.

    I actually really, really like the stock Blur messaging app on the Droid 3. It's by far the best looking messaging app out there, and personally It has all the options I need (the only one I really use is delivery reports).

    I tried out an Incredible 2 for a few days and my god the HTC messaging app is just atrocious it's so ugly and for some reason the text-input field takes up like half the screen. Handcent takes too much time to customize and get it to your liking, and I've never tried GoSmS.


    Edit - I'll also throw in that for group messaging me and my friends use facebook messenger. It really, REALLY good. Cross platform support for iPhone, Blackberry and Android, the notifications are super-fast and its very battery efficient. If you and your friends have facebook accounts, there really is no reason to not use Facebook messenger for groupchat. It blows other stuff like Touch/Pingchat and Whatsapp out of the water. I've NEVER had a problem with it, and I've been using it since the day it came out.

    Big fan of Go SMS - the notifications, which I'm really picky about, are excellent for my purposes.

    Likewise a fan of Go SMS, however I find the time stamp always being off even after correcting for in advanced settings.
