    Glad to see Google has the users' back when it comes to bugs like this. Hopefully the fixes will be pushed to us soon. :)

    I don't think Google has a way to do this since the problem is not in an app, but the OS itself. The patch can be released via the Android Open Source Project, but it will be up to each manufacturer to pick it up and decide if they want to release a patch. That could take from weeks to months or never in some cases.

    In the case of the Nexus it will probably happen pretty fast. Other phones... who knows if ever.

    Sure hope I'm wrong.

    Well hopefully Google will put out the texting app on the Android Market just like what they've been doing with other built in apps (Gmail, Voice Search, Car Home, etc)

    Yeah i really hope they just throw the MMS.apk on the market. Heck, while they're at it, might as well overhaul the whole damned app...

    I'm not an expert on this, but I have talked with someone that is supposed to be in the know on this issue.

    The stock text messaging app does not actually send or receive the text messages. Just as Handcent doesn't. Both rely on a text messaging library of the OS itself. That's why using Handcent, or Chomp doesn't solve the problem.

    The issue is with with OS itself, and an app won't fix the problem. At least that's what I was told.

    If someone has more insight on this issue please chime in.

    That would make sense. However, that means that the update would have to be pushed by Moto and/or Verizon and THAT means either it'll wait till the Gingerbread update for you X'ers and D2'ers, or that you'll get an update fairly soon that will fix that problem and probably plug yet another rooting hole.
