    I am trying to determine which is best. Any ideas are appreciated.

    Relatively new to the Droid world.

    Thanks!

    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.
