I have of course set up a password so nobody can do anything on my phone, but there are occasions when I'd like to let someone (OK my wife!) use it to make a call without worrying about private texts coming through while she has it.
1. Customization - people here often theme the phone, so we get to make the color scheme and theme of the program match our themes
2. Extra options - GO SMS for example can show inbox/sent/draft/outbox/favorites folders among others.
3. Pop ups. Default messages app usually dont have pop ups when you get messages.
4. Inbuilt blacklisting.
There are more of course but these are the ones people notice first.
