    i use Handcent. Changing LED doesn't seem to work. Also, it seems kinda slow on the X compared to other apps

    I've installed and used it a bit, but I honestly don't see any real differences between it and the stock Droid X texting.

    My X is on the way, but I have used Handcent on my Eris since day 1 so it will immediately be going on the X.

    Custom LED works fine for me. Or are you talking about the setting where you actually use the sliders to make the color? A friend of mine has that setting but I've never seen it.

    Its not free texting the only thing that does that is google voice i think but supposedly they changed that so its not as easy to get free texting and calling

    I used it for awhile on my eris but went back to stock. Stock just seems to be more snappy. So I just stuck with the stock SMS app on the X

    I am using handcent only because I don't like the bubble message (which I can't figure out how to change on the stock version) and I like the different color LED (that I can't figure out on stock either).

    My StepDaughter is getting her X tomorrow. She is a huge TXTer and wants to know if there is an app, where she can do a voice command, and it will 'dictate' the TXT msgs for her to send?

    Thanks! And I can't wait to get MY Dx!

    Well, glad I picked the right thread then! I've seen VoiceText and didn't know how that compared...any one have pros/cons 'twixt the two?

    i never used voice text so i dont have any real experience with that on handcent it is very easy and usually picks the right word you say. I only used it once or twice but its simple and works well

    I can get a background to look good you just need to get a big enough picture. I mean they all will be distorted somewhat since they are being stretched to fit the screen
