    It's pretty straightforward. You can respond in portrait, landscape w/no keyboard) or landscape w/ keyboard.

    If you get the Handcent SMS/MMS app thats a whole other story. If you are into texting then this is a must have app.

    There are too many options and customizations to list but it is phenominal.

    When I say fully customizable it's FULLY customizable. At least 40 options to change to your liking and it works as your "native" SMS/MMS app

    Txting is displayed more like an instant message by defautl, with all txt's between you and each contact arranged into a 'conversation' window.

    It's very nice, IMO.

    I can't help with providing a video or pics of texting procedures, but it shouldn't be a concern. The Handcent SMS app will be your savior when you get the phone :)

    I like hancent a lot too... but I also liked the stock Messaging app...

    one thing I cant figure out about Handcent is, when I get notifications for SMS, in the top toolbar it will notify me, if i long-push then move down to expand the notification window, the "time" is off by many hours....but then as soon as I click the message, the time is correct. Very odd.

    One thing I preferred on 'Messaging' was the ability to read part of the SMS just recieved in the top toolbar.... Handcent doesn't seem to do that?

    i really like the SMS popup app. It shows a window when you get a message and you can Close, reply, and 1 more option (forgot). Plus if you just hit Close, the notification in the top bar goes away (if you have that option checked in the settings)

    Since I haven't received any text messages in the past few moments I cannot attest either way dealing with my question....

    In Handcent when the notification sound is triggered by a text message and the pop up window appears, even when the phone is locked... what option should I press in order to stop the notification sound? Sometimes I do it and sometimes I am forced to open the actual application.
