    This. Or, another option is to have the SMS widget on one of your homescreens. From there, you can simply tap the pencil and it opens right up to composing a message.

    Pick a blank homescreen. Long press, select "widget" and then select "messages." You then have your choice of 3 different widget styles.

    i think i got it but it just makes one of the home screen to show the messages. i thought i can place a pencil or something on the main screen so i can go straight into compose. too used to my other old phones where i just move the joystick and it goes straight into sms compose screen.
