jeffnz: I'm on 4.2.2 so not sure if there was an update but expect there was. Its ver 4.2 so the application manager tells me.
Probably multiple updates, I'll give it a shot tonight
don't have to remove the default sms client. you can just set go sms
pro to be default, either as a one time only or permanently until you
decide otherwise.i use a very much older version of go sms pro,
with the ability to backup SMS/MMS to local rather than cloud. i've
found the newer versions with too much adware and bloat features that
i've never used.
Thanks for the info. I didn't get SMS Pro because it looked too much like a cartoon, and free apps usually have some kind of drawback. I prefer to pay for good apps and not have advertising and such.
