    I can't get used to the texting app that comes on the Epic 4g. It uses thread format which I can't adjust to. I would like to have normal text messages where I can reply to one or start a new one. Can anyone help? Is there a diff app I could use?

    Hmm there are other apps like Handcent and Chomp but they also use the thread format. I'm not sure of any that don't.

    There is no way to get rid of the threaded format.

    threaded txting is one of my FAVORITE android features... i wouldnt want a phone without it now. sorry you dont care for it.

    i also wont use im apps that have the chat bubbles instead of the regular threaded im enviornment so i understand why you would want to stick with something you like and are used to no matter how archaic lol

    Handscent app do this

    Tap and hold the bubble that the original text has been displayed in. A pop up will appear that give you the option to copy the content of text int next message.

    Be warned, doing that also contributes to the 160 character limit for your texts.

    My last 6 phones have had had threaded, and I couldn't imagine a phone without it now. It makes it easy to follow the flow of a conversation, as I always seem to forget whats been going on in a conversation.

    If you want non-threaded texting, go back to a dumbphone. Pretty much all smartphone OSes (Symbian doesn't count since most phones that run it are barely smart) do it now, and going back to unthreaded sounds like heading off to live in a cave and wear animal skins to me.

    Long press on the message you wish to copy, dialog box appears, click copy message text.
    Long press where it says "Type to compose" and press paste.

    Job done.
