    In the status bar or the app icon? If app icon, Handcent has a widget that shows the unread count.

    I'm using stock because I like how it's laid out...but is it sometimes really sluggish for anyone else? At times it's silky smooth, and other times it's just not.

    Not sluggish for me but I agree with you on its laid out nicely. I like the minimalistic look of it a lot.

    Yeah, I want the number of unread messages to pop up in the widget icon itself, not the the top status bar. I tried going to settings/notification settings/notification settings and checking "show unread count", but that didn't work for the widget icon for me, only the top part.

    Handcent has a counter too. I used Handcent since I got my OG Droid in 2009 and continues with the TB now. And, Swype doesn't work on the stock messenger on the TB.

    To activate the Handcent counter you put the widget on your desktop, open Handcent, go to Menu/Settings/Custom Style and check Show Zero Count.

    I just put Chomp on mine today, because I missed the popup window that you can reply in.

    Wow, I'm really in the minority here. No one else uses Chomp I guess.
