    I finally replaced my Blaze with an S5. For the most part I like it, except for two things: the 'recent' button replacing 'settings'... and the white background in Messaging. I looked around and learned that you can get a third-party dialer that's black, but I couldn't find any solutions to the white background in Messaging, which I find both very bland and hard on the eyes. Is there some kind of hidden setting for this, or an app I can install to fix it?

    Welcome to the Forum @lithrawind. Check the S5 messaging settings and see if it has a setting for Dark. If not, you may want to try goSms or handcent which allows color changes.

    Welcome aboard! Glad you found one that works for you! I've been using GoSMS on & off for years and have been happy with this messaging app. Good luck and holler if there's anything else we can help you with.
