    Now that sprint has fixed the battery issue with the messaging app I had a question. Is there any reason to use handcent or chompsms for performance? I have used the native messaging app and both handcent and chompsms. TBH I am not really interested in changing the fonts or background images or any of those types of customizations. In this case the stock app works fine. But if either of the 2 apps from the market actually perform better then that would be a reason for me to use them.

    The main reason I use handcent is that it will automatically compress pictures for MMS where as the stock app will just tell you they are too large.

    I also prefer Handcents default user interface to the stock messaging app.

    My GSM Hero automatically shrinks photos for MMS with the stock messaging app. I'm surprised to learn that it doesn't do that for the CDMA version.
