    Best Text Messaging App

    What do you guys recommend as the best text app? I am not a fan of the stock, I have been using Handcent but lately (past 2 weeks) it will not download MMS messages. I emailed the devs two weeks ago and no response, so I am looking for a change :P What app does the community here recommend?

    Have a look at the post here Handcent refuses to download MMS - xda-developers it looks like Handcents most recent release is having issues.

    Thanks for the site. I tried clearing cache/data & uninstall/reinstall and the issue still exists. I also turned wifi off and tried do download the message and it still is not working.

    Which app do you use?

    I am currently using this after trying many other ones (such as Chomp, Hi SMS, as well as others) and this is the only one that has been able to receive MMS.

    Any idea what could cause this to be the case?

    Emailed the devs on Friday for Handcent and still no response (not a good turn around time for them)!
    Go SMS is the only app that I have been able to find that is able to receive MMS from iPhone users. Maybe it is the custom ROM that I have installed that is causing this twerk? Whether it is or it is not, I will continue to use this until I see the other apps are functional.

    I use the stock mms app. It's hard to say. It may be a compatibility issue with your Rom. What are you running?

    I have had issues receiving images with 4.3. I have to manually download the image to view it(long press, save image). It is possible it may be Rom related. When you say mms, are you talking text or image.

    Image. When I long press it in Handcent, Chomp or most other apps it will attempt to download and say downloading for a few seconds then it just goes back to saying Download. This happens with all apps with the exception of Go SMS.

    EDIT!$!@!#! Is it an issue with APN Settings?
