    Can anyone suggest the best SMS app that will not slow my phone up or use too much battery? Thank you!

    What's wrong with the app that came pre-packaged with the phone? Works fine for me.

    Try Handcent. Works well for me and doesn't kill battery life or slow down the phone.

    When texting, the "focus" frequently jumps to the first line of the conversation, so if you have traded 40 or so texts, it is a PITA to scroll back down 2 or 3 times when trying to type out a msg. It seems to have gotten worse with the 2.3 upgrade. I reported this when I first got my Evo Shift and HTC claims it is a known Android messaging bug. Why they don't fix it is beyond me. I will be changing to Handcent or another messaging app soon.

    I use GoSMS, which is great and versatile.

    Some here.... but I delete my texts when there are too many. I hadn't even thought of a 3rd party app till I read this thread, thanks!

    The stock messenging app, doesnt support using the enter key to send messages.

    GoSMS, was the messenging app of choice for me, as it supports everything that I want from an app. It's also free and doesn't have any ads! :)
