    Hello all, I just joined the forum and have been an Ally user for about 4 months. I have no problems with the phone itself but every time I get an update I ask myself 'What did they ruin this time?'. Well, this time was no different. I can't stand the lighter background color that shows the threads for people you are texting/have texted. I also do not like the light blue color for incoming texts.

    Does anyone know if it is possible to change these?

    One good thing that does seem different is the time it takes to charge and stay charged. It seemed to charge very fast and still have full battery 2 hours later. Was this changed with the update?

    Thank you.

    Try a text messaging App like Handcent or ChompSMS.

    Yes, the update should have improved battery life.

    The problem with handcent (haven't tried the other one) is then there are 2 programs running for text messages. So I will get double the alerts, double the responses and so on. It won't let me disable the origional and use only handscent.

    I use Handcent and just went into the original messaging app settings and turned notifications off. I do not receive double notifications.

    i also use handcent and turn of the stock notifications off, but if you notice that on the lock screen it says how many new texts(emails also) that you have. This only goes away when you open the stock messaging app and not just handcent. Ill probably just ignore it for now but it is annoying.
