http://forums.androidcentral.com – I miss a few things about my iphone, one is the easy clean messaging. With the SGH-i317, even if you "hide" the at&t messaging app, you still have msgs from both the stock 4.1.2 and the at&t, both of which are not only redundant, but both are very lackluster. I'd like to have ONE app to handle my SMS & MMS... I really like the whatsapp interface, , very quick, easy to send any attachments, but unfortunately it only works if the people in your contact list also have the app....bummer.... any other recommendations?? :p (HowTos)
