    I currently use handcent for my sms/mms but i hear some people use chomp. Are there any benefits that chomp offers that handcent does not? (looking for the differences mostly)

    Just curious if anyone has tried both and had opinions on them.

    Thanks in advance

    I haven't tried Chomp yet. I had handcent but it was real laggy when typing a text that I uninstalled it.. I'll give chomp a try and see how it does..

    I have used both and chomp was ok, but I like handcent better. (Mainly customization)

    Never tried Chomp, but I installed Handcent once I got my Droid, and I love it, no issues here.

    Tried both, and both were laggy. Could be my Launcher2.1 or Swype or both so I'll wait till I get the real 2.1 and retry Handcent. Handcent has so much customization its nuts. Chomp seems to have the ability to send messages other than over your carrier (Verizon) though I have not used that feature.

    I have tried both and they are very similar. I think Handcent is better because it will auto split messages over 160 characters to non-Verizon phones. Not sure if they added this to Chomp since I uninstalled, but this feature is great.

    I use both Handcent and swype and have no lag issues.
    I just wish Handcent used the font I have set for a message entry (or maybe I am doing something wrong).

    No. Do a search in the forums and you should find it :)

    I have not used Chomp. Used Handcent and found it laggy so un installed....The default text provider is ok...I do like the look and feel, just not as snappy as I would like. :motdroidhoriz:
