    I am wanting to use a different sms app instead of the default one. I have read threads and noticed that some people complained about slow speeds and other issues, and I thought that may be due to the configuartion. I was wondering if anyone would be willing to give me their preference of the apps, and why they like it?

    Surf the web?
    I used both gosms ans handcent for a while but even though I disabled the notification option in the stock sms, it still poped up and would not go away on the lock screen until I open it in the stock sms, even AFTER I had opened in the other app. I found myself back to the stock sms bcuz of that but I LOVED how customizable goSMS was

    Im using GoSMS, it seems to work nice. Except for the stupid "1 message" on the lock screen, but you cant get rid of that with any of the SMS apps as far as I can tell.
