Help WIth Android Messaging - Update in OP With ?


Update:

Got Handcent all set up and working perfectly. Only thing I am not crazy about is the notifications when a message comes through. Is there a way to get a notification on the Handcent icon displaying the number of unread texts you have waiting on you like on the iPhone?

Group messaging leaves something to be desired for sure, even if you get an app. It's my only complaint after switching from an iPhone to S3

What if I am included in a group text started by someone else and not everyone is in a group I've designated?

You get a message from one person that just contains a download option. You download the message and it then appears as a group message and shows everybody involved

You also have to click an individual download option every time a member in the group sends one. It's a major pain in the arse and needs to be addressed.

I use Verizon messages. You can use it even if you don't have Verizon. Also, once the new android update comes out(4.2 JB)
It has built in group mms, so just use vzw MSG until then

I'm curious as well. I've tried Handcent and Go Pro SMS with little luck

What version of Android are you running? I know 4.2.2 has it built in to the main messaging app on the CM10.1 builds I've tried

I have Handscent SMS. Change the settings to thread group messages and the option to "pre-download" before telling you the message is there. This will prevent you from having to download every group message (comes in as an mms, not sms). It definitely takes some adjustments, but you'll get used to it.

I tried the Go SMS Pro a few days ago because I heard great reviews. It was slow and kept shutting down so I deleted it and I am going to stick with the Handscent. I suggest others do the same if they are having slow reaction times from Go SMS.
