    Default Stock messages app

    Does anyone prefer the stock messaging app? Typically on my droids I download handcent but it has started to fee a bit bloated. I know much of the reason for owning an android is customization. But there is something to be said for simplicity. So I'm giving the stock app a try. I cannot however use the stock keyboard. It's auto correct isn't nearly as good as SwiftKey.

    I like the stock messenger way better but it annoys me that i only have htc backgrounds and bad colors to choose from.

    For years I've only used GO SMS but with this phone I use the stock messaging app also. But I agree with Mitch, it would be nice to use my own background or at least a better selection.

    You can use your own. When you go to change it you can choose HTC background or gallery

    From what I've seen on the forums, it's literally a hit or miss thing. Some people can select any background (myself included) and some people can only select HTC backgrounds. Literally have no idea why but there was a thread with a bunch of conversation over it!

    On topic though, yes, I LOVE the stock messaging app, no problems, and then white/vibrant green combo with the white background is the best looking option I could think of! I wish you could just pick a custom color for each bubble though with something like a color picker, or at least a little more of selection, but I'm very satisfied! Plus you can change how many lines are previewed in the text from the list of contacts in the app, and the notifications will show you the entire message in the notification screen so I'm happy!

    This, pretty much. It's clean, works well, and I like it. But the customization is pretty poor.

    Used Go SMS on my other phones. Just use the stock messenger now, and the only thing I don't like. You have to hit space after your last word or it's left out of the text messenge.

    Really? The last word is cropped if you don't enter a space after it? I've never had that problem! That would be enough for me to not use it!

    Most apps that are not compatible with the DNA will work fine once side loaded. Have u tried that?

    Sometimes when I go to a message from the notification it puts me halfway through the conversation and I have to scroll all the way down to see the last message. Does this happen to anyone else?

    I've used handcent on every droid but I find that its getting too cluttered and cumbersome. The only thing I really miss in the stock app is being able to assign individual people their own text tone.

    Has anyone had issues attaching jpg's using the stock messaging app? For some reason it's giving me the "unsupported picture format" prompt.

    I love Handcent for its features, like blocking, but the stock app has voice messages for visual voicemail.
