    GO SMS vs Handcent?

    I'm looking to see who has which one of these two SMS/MMS messaging apps. I currently have the GO installed and for the most part I like it more than the stock texting app but I've come across something that is driving me nuts!

    Any time someone sends me a pic and they include text in the same message I get a little "play" arrow over the pic and when I tap on it, it goes to this grey full screen with the pic really tiny at the top and the text below it and no matter what I try to do I cannot enlarge the pic. I've tried long pressing the message bubble, I've tried tapping the pic when it opens up into that full screen, I've tried long pressing the pic in that grey screen, I've tried tapping the four square menu button while in the grey screen, none of those things come up with any options to do anything different with the pic.

    When I open up the stock messaging app, I don't even see the pic in the message bubble, just a little play arrow. So I tap it and it gives me a slide show where the pic is the first slide (bigger than the pic I see in GO) and the text is the second slide and I can't pause the slide show. So I don't like that any better.

    So, I want to try Handcent but I want to hear from those of you out there who have used both and why you went with one over the other and if anyone else out there has come across this in GO and if there's a set up I'm missing.

    Thanks all.

    I have used both and tend to like and use handcent. Go is ok but handcent feels more complete.

    I can't say I've tried GO, but I've used handcent for over a year now, on two devices, and I find it does everything I need an SMS/MMS app to do for me.

    I've used both and to me it seems like go is a better looking app, more options to change style but not much more over handcent. Handcent does seem to work better imo everything seems to work easier and smoother
