I have the Razr HD and was wondering in the stock messaging app in the conversation screen it shows the contact photo along with the message, is there anyway to remove the photo from the conversation list so you only see the text and not the photo, it just makes the screen a little busy and would prefer the option to remove it.
I can't seem to find any setting to change the display option so contact photos are not shown during messages.
Thanks but thats not what I mean, I don't want to individually remove photos from certain contacts, which I think is what your suggesting, I wanted to know if there is a way that any texts I get from anyone no longer shows the photo or empty photo box, like the iPhone for example, just want it to show text bubbles and nothing else.
I am thinking there is really no customizing this app though. I am not really wanting to use another 3rd party sms app so if I can customise the stock one in anyway it would be good.

Ah, I see. No, can't be done with stock. But Handcent can emulate iPhone and other custom formats. Its free and has additional features that are superior, such as a pop-up incoming text box that overrides your lock screen.
After loving the stock app on my SG3, I could not adjust to the app on my RMHD. I, too prefer not to have contact pics next to each message - how silly!
I used to use Handcent, but found it too bloated, same with GoSMS. Then I discovered Chomp, and was able to get just the look I want. Pics in the conversation list, but simple bubble style in the individual conversations.
I have installed chompsms, I like it but I cant work out how to have the chomp shortcut on the lockscreen rather than the stock icon. I have read you need to disable the stock app but I cant do that, all I have done is stop notifications but would like chomp on the lockscreen.

I tried Chomp but found two issues, first I have a custome ringtone for SMS but when I went to chose the notification sound it would only give me the option to use the same notification I chose for default.
I moved the notification to another folder but still no luck.
Secondly I don't know how to set it up so the stock app doesn't function, as I don't want dual notofications.
I can't help you with the first question, but as to double notifications, disable notifications from inside the stock app.
The Motorola DROID RAZR HD comes with one of the thinnest profiles among Android devices, just like its predecessor. The upgraded RAZR features the same size, but Moto has managed to increase the display size to 4.7 inches by extending the screen f... Read More
