    I need a new text message app!

    This default one to say the least is ... garbage! I'm switching over from an iPhone and maybe thats why I'm used to a lot of things. I just want to know if there is a text messaging app someone can recommend for me. I mean most of my problems are with regard to mms anyways

    When I receive an mms with a caption I don't want it to go into this slideshow mode and giving me a time limit on how long I can look at a picture... seriously who thought that would be a cool feature. Then when I press pause to look the screen goes black and I can only read the caption.

    Let me download high resolution pictures and/or videos. For example when my friends with iPhones send me pictures they are fairly large files which I can't open because my phone decides its too large lets delete the picture. Same thing happens with videos

    Not compress my pictures when I send them. I usually take pictures of things but when they send to other people, they receive them they are often 'blurry' and small because it compresses them so much.

    Or am I just being unreasonable?

    I dont mean to seem rude...but PLEASE search for your answer. New questions deserve answers, and we can't see them if the same thing pops up over and over

    Yep, +1 on Handcent or GO SMS Pro. Can't go wrong with either one!

    Go SMS Pro is the best i've found - personal opinion

    If you need help, and I appear to be offline, shoot me a msg on Gtalk, or PM me and I'll respond as soon as I possibly can!!

    My vote is for GO sms pro. I have it and love it and you can even make it look exactly like the iPhone if you really like that look.

    Do you guys know if I can freeze the stock text message app after installing go sms?? I think I can, there's an option for that in go sms. But I'm not sure if its going to work right.

    As long as you're rooted you can freeze the stock app. Be sure to go to the settings in the messaging app and turn off notifications

    I wouldn't bother with freezing it. I haven't seen it running on the task manager, so I dont think it does. Just do what Droid said, turn off the notifications. Some home launchers let you hide apps that you dont use so you dont have to see them in the app drawer taking up space either.
