    You'll get varied answers on that. I have used Handcent almost since day one and I got my phone in November of 2010. You just need to remember to turn notifications off on the stock one.

    I think you meant 2009? :)

    Same here, I've been using Handcent since November 2009 myself.

    Handcent was the second application I installed after facebook. Love it for its customization. Definately try it.

    Handcent is a great replacement. Would be better if it would do Gtalk.

    Handcent has a nicer UI and more functionality than the native application. Plus it is easier to open and get straight to your text messages.

    I would also say handcent is great, tho you may find picture messaging to be a pain. I have always had issues sending pic messages, I know its a common issue. I rarely send pic messages, but still go back to stock because you will have a lot less "not sent" notifications.

    That would be my one complaint. I almost always send pictures from the stock text messaging app but lately I have started using handcent again with better results.

    Handcent certainly has some annoying things... like if you have it pop up automatically and you go to do a quick swype reply but what just a little too long it will disappear in the middle of trying to swype a reply.

    You also can't look up stored email addresses with it, which is annoying.
