    The only reason I use Handcent is so I can lock a message so that when I empty or delete threads I wont lose the locked messages. I haven't been able to find how to do that with the stock app on my Droid2

    On the D1 I used Handcent for the appearance. The new Tbolt message app looks good IMO. I am not sure if its the same on other HTC phones but I def like the stock one on the Tbolt.

    Because I have to use the GV app for GV messaging.

    My wife found Handcent easier to use than stock.

    Go with what works for you.

    You can do that with the stock app as well. At least on the D2.

    I use Handcent because it lets me send messages to everyone in a group without using individual phone numbers. Is there a way to do that with the original text app?

    Nope, I don't think it does but I've never done that anyway so it's not important to me.

    I switched to Handcent because I wanted custom notification sounds for different people that texted me. Wife/kids/boss etc...

    Handcent got a little bloated and they started pushing their services a little too much so I switched to GoSMS. It has worked very well so far but it too is starting to pack on the weight. They did however just release their "Pro" version for free. dancedroid

    I use GO Sms too. The great thing about their new update is that you can choose different modes to run it in to get to speed you wish. It had gotten a little heavy. Great program tho

    Gflam, how do you get the pop up box in the default SMS app. I've been using ChompSMS because it has the pop up.
