Stock messaging app - need help
Ok so I've had the stock messaging app for months now. I like that while in a text I can put the phone up to my ear and it will automatically call the contact. I also like how when I get a text a notification comes on the lock screen showing how many texts I received. The only thing I am not pleased with is that 1. NO EMOJIS and 2. When I get a long text it comes in separately and NEVER IN ORDER. I am running stock GS3 on Sprint. I checked the option in settings to have long messages come in as a single message but it doesn't work.
So I went to Handcent. I love the emojis and the UI of the messaging app BUT, now I can't put my phone up to my ear to quickly call someone and now I do not get any number display on the handcent icon to show how many texts I got nor does it show the numbers of texts on the lock screen.
Anyone know some setting I can choose? I picked the pop up option on Handcent but it's just a text pop up. Not like the stock messaging app. I hate that I get one thing but loose another feature. Anyone know if Android will ever just get the damn emojis on the stock messaging app? If they had them I would never use Handcent. I feel it's draining my batter faster because now I am running two messaging apps. I know I can disable the stock mes app but then Handcent doesn't work. I can even set Handcent to default but then I don't receive messages!
Any input or tips would be helpful. I don't want to root/flash. I like being stock. FYI. Thanks in advance.
ALSO! I MADE A DUPLICATE OF THIS AND NO WHERE CAN I FIND HOW TO DELETE IT. SORRY, SOMEONE PLEASE ADVISE. I LOOKED EVERYWHERE IN EDIT POST AND COULDNT FIND A DELETE BUTTON.
