the quick reply feature in irealsms is great, now i dont have to stop whatever i am doing to reply a text, all it needs now is a simple way to apply themes into it

Has anyone figured out how to fix the negative messages bubble that appears on the apple stock sms app after using iRealSMS as the default sms app?
Again, i'd definitely go back to iReal, but in case a firmware update breaks it and i have to go back to the stock app, i'd still like to have all my texts that i had with iReal...

Just for clarification, why use a 3rd party SMS?
My Default SMS app is always instant and runs without glitches. I Text more than I talk on my 3G and I use it all the time. I got Swirly for the MMS purposes but why switch your SMS? Landscape mode? What else?
Could you guys give me the reasons for this to better clarify which of these SMS's is the better app?

but aside from just that, these 3rd party apps add a ton more features. like deleting a single text msg, forward a text message, forwarding a friend's contact info straight from the sms app, draft folders, ability to move text messages around to different folders, etc etc etc

irealsms was working just fine for the first little while...now it doesnt work at all. i had to remove it. it doesnt work as the default sms app and the quick reply feature is non existant. it straight up doesnt work at all. i love the app and have paid for it but i think until i do a full restore i am SOL. nothing will beat the quick reply feature once i get it installed right though. i will use that like ALL the time. as a matter of fact thats what i bought the application for was that feature. i could care less about landscape and all that crap...i just want the quick reply feature!!!!The beatings will continue until morale improves.

I'm an irealsms user, and I love the app. I use my iPhone a lot for texting. The only thing I don't like is their 'support'.
I've written e-mails numerous times about the lack of WinterBoard support, and they can't take their time to answer 'We're working on it.' or 'We won't work on it, you're f*cked' or something..
Also, I'm pretty much disgusted about the fact that since 2.0.6 came by, whenever I receive a message in my lockscreen, I get "Text from: (XXX) XXX-XXX" instead of "Text from: John Doe". (Yes, the numbers I receive SMS from are already stored in my contacts.) There have been two updates since 2.0.6 (22.214.171.124 & 126.96.36.199) and every update, I've written an e-mail to them.
I wonder if those guys have blacklisted my e-mail account or if frankly, they don't give a damn.
The WinterBoard issue is weird, as 1.x and 2.0beta did work with WB themes, and the "Text from:" issue is something that I believe is very simple to fix. It's not like irealsms had these issues before, it just happened to break a few days ago.

quick reply FTW! it definitely has its flaws and limitations but that feature alone would convince me to jailbreak the iphone.
i have an issue replying while in landscape or using quick reply while in landscape mode. like a previous poster, i too have emailed "support" with no response so you've been forwarned, but...overall ireal is a great app!
put quick reply on the list of features to be added to the iphone by apple right below copy and paste!

the other day i closed (pushed close) the quickreply and i ended with a phantom 1 unread message :P
i deleted the sms database with finder to fix it (i could have deleted all the conversations, i know)
i have no problem with iRealSMS not matching numbers to contacts.

Hmm, I see you have 2.1. I'm thinking this is an issue with 2.2 users! :/

The only one I've tried is iRealSMS, so that's the only one I've ever used, overall I'm pretty happy with it.

I own both mySMS ($4.95) and iREALSMS 2.06 ($13.00)
first, its not 8 dollars.. its 8 euros.. which is 13 bucks.. and way too expensive for a SMS app. sorry...
mySMS hit it on the head with the 4.95 price tag. good job pavel.
now. Interface. mySMS blows iREALSMS out of the water on interface, layout, menus, features, you name it. mySMS is just better.
performance. iREALSMS wins this one. It starts up slower, but it sends instantly. and the quick reply function is amazing. thats the reason i use irealsms is quickreply.
if mySMS can fix the 25 second sending text message issues, and tone down some of the compatibility issues with other 3rd party apps then mySMS will be champ. but for now, i am using iREALSMS 2.0 becuase quickreply is the best feature period.

Im using iReal SMS.. version 2.0.1... I just noticed that when someone send you a phone number in 555-5555 format, it doesnt become a clickable phone number... the stock sms app will highlight it and it becomes a number you can tap to dial or tap to add to contact list. disapointment in that aspect.

I don't think the applications are slow but the firmware. Since I upgraded from 1.1.3 to 2.1 I noticed my phone running applications slower than 1.1.3 - If it was as easy as jailbraking and unlocking 2.1 I would happily go back to the 1.1.3 firmware

is iRealSMS really worth the $13? Im hesitant to buy cause Im scared they are going to update it again and charge to update. I cant imagine they would/ could charge much more though, cause $13 is REALLY pushing it. Not alot of app store apps are even that expensive
