    I use handcent and I absolutely love it. It is so customizable. I would never have any reason to try anything else

    I've been using handcent for the longest time, I just make sure to keep the pop up message feature off, I personally don't like it. Its nice to have the choice though.

    But I really like the standard sms app on squidleys rom so im just using that over handcent at the moment.

    I use chompsms. I like it better than handsent. You can always download one to check it out. If you don't like it, just uninstall and try another.

    Turning off standard txt message app

    I am going to try handcent first and thanks for everyones answer. I may install and uninstall each and try them.

    QUESTION: how do I turn off the standard messaging app so that I don't get double messages, or whatever?

    Thanks!

    I actually like the UI of the stock app, and use SMS popup for the extra options.

    Switched from Handcent to GO. Really like the simplicity of GO.

    I have used Go, Chomp, and Handcent. They all have features that I like. I use Handcent, it has the most things that I like.

    I like the way Go has the contact number displayed under their name when I am composing a message to them.

    I like the pop up window that Chomp uses. Chomp would not clear from my notification bar after I read the pop up message.

    i just prefer Handcent overall at this point.

    I am a big fan of ChompSMS. I might have to give Go a whirl and see what it's about. I haven't heard of it til now.

    What clinches it for me is individual notification settings for contacts. So handcent gets my vote.

    On a keyboard phone chomp don't work rite. If u have the phone closed vertical using quick reply then turn or open the keyboard the message disappears and u have to click reply again to make it work. Very irritating. I have tried all 3. Handsent has my vote and use for a long time to come

    Handcent is my keeper for now... the customisability of my contacts is what i was looking for and it does that in spades(this is a feature that I missed from my BBerry Strorm 9530).. Wish the color LED setting worked though????

    Also, I downloaded the emoji plug in by my GF's girlfriend's iPhone won't receive them and my X won't receive hers.

    Any idea what is happening here????

    The LED color option is under notification settings. You can change the Flash frequency as well. Have you tried the emoji feature with another droid? It could have something to do with her iphone.
