Exclamation Can't send SMS using any third party app

I keep trying to use a third party SMS app, because I'm hardly a fan of the stock! It seems, though, that I can't send a message from a third party app - I've tried both ChompSMS and GoSMSPro, but both will fail upon attempt. Almost instantly too. I have the logcat from Chomp here if anyone's interested. I've been poking at it a little, but can only stare for so long when I don't know what I'm looking for really.

I searched briefly and didn't find much anywhere on this matter, perhaps I'm doing something wrong?

Thanks for any assistance

**EDIT** I sort of figured it out... They don't handle the +1<Phone number> That was tacked on the front for the country code. Not sure why that is or if there's any remedy without deleting all the +1s

**EDIT2** Handcent FTW, handles this all correctly, somehow better than others? Not sure what they could've done to screw it up for me specifically, never heard of this issue elsewhere and my old Droid Eris worked fine with all of these applications, besides being slow!
