    I've always used GO, but others have recommended Chomp, Textra, and Pansi. Does anyone have any experience with any of the above mentioned? I like GO, but I was looking for something a little lighter.

    I've used both Go and Chomps. I'm currently using Handcent. It's pretty close to Go but I think it might be lighter.

    I use Handcent. Been using it for years now. To me it hasn't let me down yet.

    Chomp, glowfly, or SMS popup.

    Was using Handcent, but switched to Textra. Cleaner looking, faster, more elegant. I first used Go, but it was always at the top of battery usage even though I don't text near as much as IM.

    Does Textra have ads?

    I just installed Textra. You were not kidding about it being light and simple. Here's hoping that translated to smooth operation. Thanks for the suggestion.

    How does Textra handle mms? Textra is made by same developers as Chomp which I just started using and like a lot.

    Recent Textra convert. Like much better than GO SMS (too cartoony, features I don't need or want). Simple, straight up and free...so far. Looked like the direction the Chomp developers were going so I skipped Chomp and went to this app. My favorite feature so far is assigning different text notification icon to different contacts.

    I like the stock HTC messenger. It does group mms, which is important to me. Seems to work just fine.

    One thing I forgot to mention is that the standard messaging app doesn't recognize custom labels from Google contacts. Go, Handcent and Textra do.

    Same here. Always bounced back between Go and Handcent but I'm digging the stock HTC app. Also like the group messaging feature, and I really like the color theme on the top right of the colors menu. (They don't have theme names.)

    Go is my backup and I still use it on occasion. Love their WP7 theme.

    I would absolutely love to just use the stock messaging app, but I am on Sprint, and for whatever reason when I send MMS the pictures are so small on the receiving end even when I have it set to the highest output setting. When I used Go and now use Chomp the pic quality is much better when sent. Also, when I send screen grabs on stock they come out blurry and distorted while on Go or Chomp they come out crisp and clean. Anyone else experience the same thing? I guess my questions and concerns are more targeted towards Sprint One users, but anyone please feel free to chime in.

    I wonder if that is a result of the CDMA network.

    I'm not sure as Verizon does not yet have the phone so I have nobody else to compare with.

    I've been using Handcent, pretty good app but I switched to Go SMS yesterday and I really like it, it has more themes and seems more customizable.

    I used ChompSMS and bumped up the limit and it seems to work great. Videos always aren't the best but my pictures are fine.

    do any of you know if any of the non-stock messaging apps support group messaging as well as the stock on does? i like the stock messaging application, but i would like a more customizable user interface.
