I have tried chompsms and I have also tried handcent. But after my experience with both I think I am going back to the stock messaging app. Chompsms reminds me too much of the iPhone and handcent is just plain too much. Plus it seems these programs simply run on top of the messaging app already with the device. As I was considering all this, I had a thought. Is there a way to use the stock sms messaging program with Google voice and also use it along with the HTC messaging widget? I seriously wish there was a way to do this. I use Google voice for much of my texting simply because I don't have to worry about going over on texts. I think the HTC message widget is the bomb.
