    no using a third party you usually get more features.

    Handcent was mega-glitchy on mine. Got double notifications all the time even when disabling everything on the stock app. Vibes sometimes worked, sometimes not. Few other oddities here and there, just enough to make it not worth it. Others seem to have better luck tho.

    The only thing I like about the stock SMS is I can get a full page widget on my screen with all my messages. With Handcent, I have to open an application. Unless I am missing something?
