    I've been a long time Handcent user on my S3, but thinking about switching it up and trying new app for new phone. Before you ask why, why not? After reading a few threads and articles I'm choosing between Textra and EvolveSMS. Any opinions on these or other strong recommendations? Thanks!
    I have used EvolveSMS for quite some time when I was on my S3 with CM11 on Sprint. I switched over to a Note 4 (stock non-rooted) to T-Mobile but unfortunately I haven't found a solution that fixes my SMS problems. I heard a while back about a messaging app based on the CM 10.2 messaging app called 8SMS. I tried it and it works, so that's what I use now.

    Was loving Textra for the past year, until with a recent update they changed contact photos from squares to circles. Grrrrr. I hate the circles every other app is using. I like squares So I switched to ChompSMS (same dev, lots more options, but no cool "favorites" contacts like Textra).

    Question to the former BlackBerry (CrackBerry) members - wasn't there a ChompSMS (or Chomp-alike) for BlackBerry way back when?

    Evolve SMS is my favorite. Made from the same guy that created Talon.

    I use textra. However, for some reason I'm not getting SMS or MMS with it while connected to wifi.

    Did you actually get the activation code to work? It's not working for me.

    I know I'll sound crazy but I use Verizon Messages+. Works well and I get messages on my phone/computer/tablet. So I can use it no matter what device I'm on. I can pick tones for each conversation within the thread. Just my two cents!

    I have been using Verizon's Message+ too ... I do like it but sometimes I experience some lag. The message does not get sent for a few minutes at times and a few times it fails altogether.

    Before Message+, I used Hangouts. On Hangouts, I used to experience a significant lag in incoming messages. Sometimes, I would not receive incoming messages for more than 30 minutes or even hours.

    I think I am going to give Textra a shot.
