    I don't need handcent anymore. IMHO this stock application with the Droid works absolutely great. Voice recognition works good. Presentation of the texts looks nice.

    I really like it a lot, but I am on a 250 max tech message plan so I use GV more for texting. I just think this is a huge improvement over the D1 app.

    i'm not a fan of the D2's messenger...

    - you can't click on a person's avatar from within a conversation to bring up the what-to-do bubble (call, email, etc). you have to hit menu - call, if you want to call them.
    - you can't use enter (return) to send, you HAVE to click the send button. which is a huge problem for me. it takes me an extra second or two before i realize that i've created a new line in the message and it hasn't sent out.
    - i also hate the non-standard icon. the green speak bubble with the smiley face was a dead clue that i had/have a text message.

    i miss Android's messenger. it was built for speed, not beauty.

    The D2's stock SMS doesn't turn the screen on when you receive a text, and it doesn't allow you to set a different tone/ setting per contact.

    I am on the fan train for this one, as well. Voice composition of text messages works nearly flawlessly, and I don't mind hitting a button to bring up the options for the contact. Definitely a lot better than what I had on my Omnia or my Blackberry.

    Strange, I can click the person's name within a conversation and it brings me to their Contact Info page where I can call, email, etc...

    I agree. That is one thing I don't like about it

    name does, but the avy doesn't, which is what i'm used to hitting. if you hit the avy in the conversation list, it will bring up the standard bubble. it should be doing that in a text conversation too.
