Hi folks,

I thought I posted this before but I can't seem to see it. Hopefully this one will go through...

Anyway, is anyone else unhappy with the messaging app in their WM6 phones? I have an HTC Touch Cruise and find it a little awkward to use without the stylus. It's not the HTC Keypad or Keyboard I am unhappy with - it's the actual messaging app. I find it awkward to search and add recipients without the stylus. Using the menu is also quite awkward.

Has anyone found a nice alternative? I have tried PocketCM but didn't like it at all. Any other suggestions?

Cheers,
Dany.

I'm amazed you havent come across Vito SMS-Chat!

Never have to use the stylus at all. Used in combination with Vito Fun Contacts, it's so easy to add new contacts etc. Finger scroll also.

D'oh! Forgot to mention that I have actually tried SMS-Chat and liked it. I kinda objected to being "locked-in" though, having to use Fun Contacts with it. If there are no other options then I may well have to cough up :o) I guess you get what you pay for and all that...
