    Well.. I've used both. I have been using GO a majority of the time because I liked the lay out better. But I've had A LOT of force closes and bugs with it lately I wish that weren't the case, because I love the app. Though, I have experienced the same issue with MMS. So I always just ask the sender to re-send with out the message and it works fine. But, I know that's not really ideal nor convenient. I'm not sure if Handcent is capable of receiving MMS with message text and still giving you the option to view it correctly. Maybe try e-mailing the GO dev team because they seem so awesome, and ask them about why it does that and request a fix. Just an idea if Handcent gives the same issue.

    I installed Handcent to test it out .... but I forgot to disable GO .... boy, was that a mess with both programs trying to respond at the same time....I'd be typing and another msg would come in and boot me out of typing mode. The person I was texting with recommending Whatsapp .... anyone know anything about it? (she's an Apple-fan-boy, though)

    I need a new text message app!

    Just posted about this on that thread. As a note to that, on the long press menu, you have the option to "Copy attached to SD Card," which will save the picture for you, and you can see the full size version of it that way.

    Unfortunately Ryoken, for the specific situation I described (pic and text in same convo bubble) you are wrong. I know when the long press works and believe me when i tell you, it DOES NOT work in that instance.

    Guess I should've been more clear, this is in Handcent (my post on the other thread I linked does say it's in Handcent as well).

    Yeah...I replied, then followed the link and read that. Consequently, I downloaded Handcent, long pressed as you suggested and of course it worked as you said and gave me a BUNCH of options. One of those options that stood out (besides the ability to download to SD) was the ability to forward, which GO didn't have regardless. As a result I uninstalled everything that had to do with GO SMS.

    So that's it for me, Handcent wins IMHO.

    Sorry I don't have the patients to send a long e-mail to the GO dev team explaining their short comings Monsta, I just want a program to work and Handcent does what I want it to.

    Thanks for the input y'all.

    Fine with me, man. Was just a thought. I'm in love with the customization of GO.. But I'm getting so many bugs and forcecloses... I don't know how much longer I'll keep it.

    Spend a little more time looking over Handcent. I've only spent a few minutes glancing over some of the options to customize and I've already found that Handcent has nearly all of the same features as GO has in terms of customizing.
