Configurable SMS app?

    I've had my HTC Desire for a month or so now and I must say the SMS app is almost surreally useless.

    I don't want to view txts in threads! I just want them to appear in an Inbox / Outbox arrangement like my old and increasingly-missed Motorola V9, with the most recent txts at the top. I had a look at Handcent but that still seems to go with this thread-based thing, but this time with funky speech bubbles. Gee whizz.

    It would be good to be able to send to multiple recipients, currently only possible when you start a new thread; that means you have to look up everybody's number again. Where is the list of most txt-ed contacts?

    Finally, full predictive txt would be nice, my old flip knew me worryingly well, so if I typed "I'm" it would automatically offer " in the Rat and Parrot see you at about 8:30" which made life a lot easier.

    I thought the whole point of smartphones was that everything was configurable, but the menu options are few and almost exclusively to do with cosmetic changes. Has anyone found such an app for Android?

    Any thoughts gratefully received,
