Great - lotz of optionsGreat app!! 4 stars because I cannot upgrade service or back up texts. Also current texts do not pop up. It only shows the previous texts. I do love all of the customization options!
No more mails?Love the customization options. Why can I not send to email addresses and vice/versa? Would like to be able to forward received mms to emails and other way around. Email addresses should also pop up on drop down list when entering a contacts name when composing a message. The stock app does it, this better (in my opinion) app should too. DROID Bionic on Ice Cream Sandwich.
PleaseGet rid of notification for message not sent...just keep trying to send until sent. And the pop-up can be very annoying when in a gaming app or Netflix. Please fix so that pop up does not disturb apps such as those.
