    So I know most of our OG Droids are almost at their last stand, but with that in mind, I was wondering what texting/sms app you are using/and or recommend. Im rooted and OC'd and no matter what messaging app I use it still is super slow and seems to force close all the time on me. Ive tried Handcent, Go SMS Pro, and chompSMS with no luck at all.

    So what are you guys using?

    Hi,

    I tried several SMS Apps - of course Handcent, Go SMS ... were some of them. However none of them was what I was searching for.

    For one month I have been using mysms SMS App now, and I can tell it's quite different from the others. Most important to me, this app is really fast - especially compared to Handcent. Furthermore, texting to other users is free. So I added some of my friends and was able to decrease my costs quite a bit!

    One other cool thing... mysms is also available as web app and this is what I was really missing in all other apps. Messages and contacts are synchronized from my Galaxy and available on the web. The best find is about this is that I can send operator SMS from the webinterface. I always hated typing in my texts on the smartphone keyboard, so this is perfect for me.

    I use Google Voice. If you're a Google Voice user I'd recommend it. If not, it won't be germane to you.

    Sounds like an issue with your Droid then. If you revert the OC'ing do you still have problems?

    GV does this as well. Messages are actually stored in the GV account. The GV app on the device just syncs with your GV account.

    Thanks for the information guys.

    And I haven't tried without the OC because it makes the whatever rom I am on too slow overall.

    But with google voice, can you text regular phone numbers, or just other google voice users?

    Yes, with Google Voice you can text regular phone numbers. I think they have to be in the US though, not too sure...
