so this is a great phone. but theres two really annoying and upsetting issues.

1. when i get a notifcation, the screen doesnt wake up..really?
2.the sms themes they provide us. i love i can put my own background there, and individual ones too. but the bubbles SERIOUSLY are lacking, and are down right ridiculous. grey and beige? grey and teal? grey and purple? white and beige? oh, and the worst..a yellow sunshine bubble, and a pink sunshine bubble...and a pink piggy bubble, and a white chicken bubble.

i am 24 years old. i dont want to have anything to do with a bubble shaped like a pink pig or a white chicken.

are there any decent bloat-free apps out there that offer more customization, besides rooting?

Try Textra amazing app for sms replacement. Looks better than stock version also no bloat and easy to set up.

c'mon the chicken and pig are pretty funny

ugly as sin and made for like a 8 yr old, but funny nonetheless.


all the customizations in the lg skin app are made for teenage girls it seems.

I'm using Sliding SMS (CM Messaging). Looks good, is fully customisable and has pop up function as well.

I love the chicken and the pig, it's what I'm using now What I don't like about the stock one is you can't set individual notifications for different people. Does textra or sliding sms? Have been using go sms but want something less bloaty.

Yes you can. You just have to go into their contact profile the same way you would for a ringtone. I've lived with handcent or gosms or textra for about 4 years now and I'm enjoying the stock lg messaging app so far.
