    I was wondering if there is an app or setting to make the text messenging page fancier. The factory setting is kinda drab looking.

    Unfortunately, no. There are other apps that use themes like Handcent. However, the stock messaging app is stuck the way it is.

    Personally I like GoSMS as a replacement for the default text messenger. You can change everything about how your conversations look, to how your conversation list looks. It's pretty great. Oh yeah and it's totally free. :)

    Here's how I have mine set up:

    My gripe with GoSMS is that, for texts sent to multiple people via MMS, sometimes you couldn't tell who a reply was from. I uninstalled it and went back to the stock app.

    Ok don't flame on me, but I really like Verizon messenger. It let's me select background colors and bubble background but is about as simple as stock. And it's the best one I've come across for sending mms. Photos attach in the blink of an eye and never fail to send.

    I wish all apps on Android were as customizable as Handcent...you can literally make it look like whatever you want.

    + 3 for Handcent. Lots of themes available and easy to customize.

    I refuse to use any Verizon apps purely out of spite. The fact that verizon wont let me uninstall them is obnoxious and unecessary.
