Default Handcent the best text app ? How to show unread ?

Just picked up my EVO this week, and loving it. I am not new to Android had the Nexus-One for a few months, but T-Mobile was killing me with crappy call service, and delayed voice mails. Also had the iPhone3G couple years ago, but mainly ATT's raping of monthly service was the biggest rip off in the industry, and I think with 2.1 Android is finally on par with Apple, and with 2.2 Froyo surpasses it. Have to admit seeing the early Android devices with 1.5 was pretty rough and felt like a beta test phone to me. But they have come a long way since early 2009. Can't even imagine the Android devices in Summer of next year, running 3.0 OS.

Anyways, I text my clients and Family a good amount, and find the default text app on Android to be too basic, and almost hard to read the conversation. I am not a big Apple fan, but admit their text method is very easy to see and follow. So Handcent seems the best to me. My main question is, can I set an option to show me missed or not read texts ? I know on the default text app it shows that, or even the app "Unread SMS count", but it doesn't work for Handcent I believe right ?

Any help would be appreciated, thank you.

Sorry I'm not sure about that in which your looking for, but I can tell you this bit of info about Handsent if you like to send (mms) pics and video Handsent can not do this, also it will not allow your pre installed messenger to be able to send them either. But hey if your just lookin for one that makes sms's look good then it's great to have I had to delete it after I read some post about that happening to others, they may have updated it since last month though.

Thanks for reply. I was just wondering if there was an option in Handcent to allow it to show how many unread texts there are, but show it on the app icon. Like if 2 people text me but I didn't read them yet, it would have a little #2 above the Handcent icon.

In response to the question. I have never seen a way to show the number of missed texts. However, when you are on the main Handscent screen, there is a colored vertical line to the left of each contact that has unread messages. It also moves the most recent texts messages to the top of the list. The colored vertical line happens to be green in my app but that may be due to my settings. I send/receive over 5k texts/month and I have no problem staying updated on the latest texts.
