    Is it possible to use the stock Android messaging app on Droid X? Verizon replaced it with their own Text Messaging app that is quite a bit more limited than the stock one. Anyone know?

    EDIT: I guess Eclair would be acceptable too

    go to settings> language and keyboard and check android keyboard.

    Also maybe try swype or swiftkey. swype is pre-installed and swiftkey is in the market.

    Are you kidding me? Where in this topic do I mention the keyboard? I'm talking about the messaging app.

    Well that was kind of rude of me anyway, so my bad. But anyway, Droid X doesn't have the stock Android keyboard anyway. The only options on the device are Multi-Touch and Swype.

    I don't like Handcent; I just want the stock Android messaging app. If I were to grab the .apk would it work on the Droid X?

    Not really sure since I don't own a x, but maybe some of the great devs will jump on here and I know they will be able to help

    well, maybe it's cuz i grabbed one of pete's apk ports but i have the stock keyboard in my options.. still beside the point. The only thing I can think of is to get a dev to make a port of the standard app, like pull it from the droid or something. Pete has done it with some other droid apps so i'm sure it's possible. and to more properly answer your question (i re-read!) it seems that it would not, as is. some of the code would need to be tweaked, if I'm understanding correctly.

    If you look in the ROMs section look for the virgin-OEM-stock2.1 file. Open that and you can pull the .apk. I believe it is called IME.apk. I have no idea if it will work, but hey. And I'd get it my self, but I'm busy. It won't take much to get it from where I said.

    You'd be fine just pulling the messaging APK from 2.1, since there aren't many differences.
