    Just got my droid a week ago and damn. Great device. I was really going for the omnia 2 just because i like samsung and motorola had not put out anything that great in a while. So glad i came to my senses. My question is this. on my old voyager i could go to an old text and hit a button and it would read it to me. Is this possible on the droid? And if so how? I dont just want it to speak incoming texts i want to be able to sit there and pick a text from a month ago and get it read aloud. Any help would be appreciated. Also any newbie hints as well. Thanx

    I agree with Guchi, handcent is wonderful! I don't care for the stock sms app. Handcent is fast, customizable, and easy to use. I also like the gDialer widget. With it I added a speed dial on my front page for my families numbers. Have fun with your droid!

    first, welcome to the forums! this has (so far) been a place where people (mostly) respect each other and are (typically) very helpful.. granted, it's not perfect, but it's better than most ;)

    to address your question, +1 for Handcent. it is eight shades of awesome. also search for Swype on here. (you are welcome!)
