    Anyone have major lag issues w/ the native sense texting app? I have to tap back, several times to get out of the application. Any recommendations for replacement? Handcent? Others?

    I used Handsent until it started randomly deleting my texts, now I use GoSMS (along with their SMS backup) and love it about 4 days in.

    Go SMS and Handcent are popular alternatives. Personally, I like Handcent.

    changed the vibration setting and some others I'd not yet done for improving battery life and now the built in SMS is immediate when hitting back

    I have this issue as well, I have to keep using the back key to get out and sometime I will see a white screen before it will allow me to completely exit. Noob question...exactly what is Handcent and SMS?

    Handcent and Go SMS are alternative text messaging apps available from the Market. Both offer more customization than the stock text messaging app.

    Handcent is a 3rd party application that replaces the native SmS application. SMS=text messages

    When you use handcent, can you disable the stock app? I tried to but couldn't...and so whenever I got a text, I had to go into both programs and check the message to get rid of the notifications.

    All you have to do is disable notifications in the stock app. Open it up, then tap menu -> settings and uncheck "Received notification".

    I've been using GO SMS Pro since I got my Bolt. Very smooth - haven't noticed lag even when some of the threads reach 200+ messages.

    I've been using VZW's free messaging application which is pretty good I'd have to say. A lot better then the stock application.
