    Does anyone notice when they have alot of messages - when you make new text messages or just try to browse through old ones it lags alot? Or is it just me?

    Thanks all!

    Well it depends.

    I use ChompSMS and I have arround 500 messages.
    When I first browse through them it lags quite a bit.
    But when I browse through them a second or third time it lags alot less.

    Probably because it has to load it in the device's memory.

    I use Handcent, have over 800 messages and have no lag at all. Flies through the menu's and texts.

    I've downloaded Handcent to compare and I have to admit, it runs a lot smoother.

    Is it possible to run the normal messages along side of something like handcent. And is it a good idea to periodically delete my messages?

    Eh, I've a few thousand and it's not that bad. Choppy when I flick through down the contacts in chompSMS, but I dunno, I expect it to be. It's not a frustrating lag.

    Well I do have over 10k messages so I'm not sure if it's expected to be more laggy now. Especially when I've sent a message and wait for it to appear on screen then hit the back button it's loading for like 5-6 seconds.

    Yeah the stock HTC messaging app will lag when opening large threads. Handcent is much quicker navigating them, but I prefer the stock App. In the settings you can set a maximum message limit per thread. This is a good idea.
