Using this on my DROID, Handcent SMS is a great alternative to the default android messanger. Look and feel let you tweak every aspect of the display and delivery of messages. "Split" feature is awesome, allowing you to type a message then automatically splits it into two messages if you type over the character count. Pop-up display instead of just the status bar notification is great for quickk resonses. Of course you can turn this off if you perfer. All in all, Handcent is a super fun messanger app!
