Default Best SMS/MMS Messaging App

Coming from the LG Voyager, I really hate the stock Droid X messaging app. Are there any better messaging apps out there? This is my first smartphone/Android device so I'm new to the market.

Thanks

I like Handcent (Handcent SMS for Android).
It is quite nice.
Another alternative that I like is ChompSMS though Handcent is for sure my favourite.

I have tried both chomp and handcent and both of them lose my messages. Is there an update or something that will prevent this?

Lol I know im hella late but now I think GO sms pro is one of the best, atleast for me it is. Its way more customizable then handcent or chomp, I had both of those and I like GO sms pro better then all of them. If I remember correctly I think the app is by the GO dev team look it up if you like. ^_^

I went from Handcent to Chomp to GO, and like them in that order (Go being best)... since then I reverted back to stock to save app space (and since I only send about 1 text a week).

I'm using chompSMS... And so far I'm enjoying it! But given a chance I can root my phone and be able to use Handcent, I'll give it a try...

Another vote for 'Go' here. At least when I was looking for a texting app one of my criteria was a folder view which GO has. Not looked since so others may have it now but at the time that was its selling point to me.

Default Group Texting w Handcent

Hi, All;

I am new to this forum.

Don't know if this is where I should post my question.

Instead of adding individual contacts, one by one, to a message, I would like to create groups, similiar to email distribution lists.

Is this possible w Handcent?

If so, how can I learn to do it?

Thanks,

MobiKeith

I used Handcent for almost 2 years with my original Droid but have recently discovered GoSMS and I really like the look and the customization available. It's my new favorite.

What type of phone do you have? I use Handcent as well, but I created my groups in the stock contacts app.

I don't understand everyone's obsession with handscent. It's slow, ugly and buggy AND has ads. GO sms ftw!
