    Hello everyone

    I just got my Droid X today and i was planning on using a app to do most of my text messaging with.

    I was just wondering before i start downloading a bunch of random apps if anyone has any recommendations for which would be the best.


    Thanks

    -Kevin

    Besides the built-in app, most people use either Handcent or ChompSMS. Which is best is user preference. Try both.

    im not sure if thats a typo becuase its in the post and the title of the post (not trying to be a d*ck) but if you meant text, hancent sms is the best one i have come across. If you meant to say test message i have no idea.

    Theres not much other than handcent and chomp. I like handcent becuase you can change the led color for your text notification, not sure if you can do that with chomp

    Hmmm

    Well i guess the real question i have is:


    I only have 250 messages per month and i want to use a texting app to do most of my testing with so that i dont use up my limited amount of texts.

    Handcent and chomp will both use the texts from your plan. If you're looking for free texting I would suggest google voice.
