    Hi,

    I use fishtext to send SMS (as it is REALLY cheap), but fishtext doesn't provide a Android native app.

    I have just bought my N1 and it will arrive next week.

    I came across WebSMS (websmsdroid - Project Hosting on Google Code) and it integrates to fishtext (According to some reviews I read).

    I would like to replace the stock sms app with WebSMS, is that possible? I don't want to be using the stock SMS app by accident and end up paying loads for SMSs I send. (I send about 1K SMS monthly).

    Can anyone help?

    Cheers

    Try going into the stock SMS app, then Settings. Disable notifications, disable auto-retrieve, disable everything. Download and install the app you prefer, and next time you want to send an SMS there should be a pop-up to let you choose which app you want as the default.
