I currently just use google hangout as my sms service, but I find it very annoying that every time I go to send a text I have to choose my contact and then scroll down to their phone number otherwise it will try to contact them via hangouts. A lot of times the contact doesn't have hangouts and I accidentally choose that method and realize and hour or so later when they haven't replied.

Is there anyway to have it default to contacting via SMS, otherwise I may have to install handcent or something.

There isn't a way to change the default method. I usually just press the + icon and find the persons name.

Try using This If you like Hangouts UI but that annoys you.

I will give that app a try. I installed handcent very cool, but seems really sluggish.

Yeah, evolve, handcent, all of them feel sluggish IMO. That other app is the closest app I can find to stock, although I prefer hangouts myself as of now
