    Just wondering what sms message app everyone is using? I switched from the default one to handcent and I quite like it but I want to know if there are any better ones out there.

    That was only a problem with the pre-release firmware that reviewers had. It was fixed to my knowledge on all shipped consumer-level X10s.

    With that said, I'm using Handcent SMS, and loving it. Far more options than the default SMS app.

    Try SMS Popup if you've disabled Timescape widget. Lets you access and reply to SMS on the home screen, provides quick reply, preset messages and many other options. Really enjoying this app.

    If anyone hasn't already tried the HTC keyboard I would strongly recommend it....I gave into temptation last night and it is sooo mcuh better that the pre-installed ones. Faster, more responsive, more functionality.....brilliant! instructions look complicated but it takes no more than 5 minutes to do...its very easy!

    I think it looks pretty much like Better Keyboard, only I like black skin with white letters on Better keyboard so the phone does not blow my eyes at night when I type something in dark. Or maybe this is even better/more precise than Better Keyboard ?

    Finally got round to installing the HTC Board and agree its alot better, Should of done it earlier.

    I now have the SE Keyboard / Jap Keyboard / Android Keyboard / HTC Keyboard / Swype /.

    lol think i will stick with the htc one and just use swype for showing off to people ;) :D

    I downloaded and installed the htc keyboard but when i load the keyboard it seems to be a SMALLER version..... meaning. The keybord itself is about HALF THE SIZE it should be... any suggestions as to what i did wrong???

    I've tried both and I think the HTC is well... better than better keyboard. I also tried smartkeyboard pro which is good too, it doesn't remember custom spelling like HTC and no smiley button but i'd say that's better than better keyboard too.
