    I just upgraded from a Droid 1 to a Droid incredible and I am loving it thus far. I have created this thread to see how you all feel about the stock messenger vs. Handcent. For me, stock works a little smoother than Handcent. I'm curious to see how you all feel about it.

    Stock Messaging app from HTC is superior to handscent

    I prefer ChompSMS, but I did use Handcent for awhile.

    Anything was better than stock imo

    I use stock text and Gmail with SMS notifier and e-mail notifier, both by mapeapps and free on the market, for both. Works great for me.

    Correct me if I'm wrong... only Handcent has the ability to customize reminder tones. That was very important to me.

    I LOVE Handcent. It is fun to be able to send ecards, custom messages, custom greetings (colorful and cool). Also, you can customize the notification to the individual. dancedroid
