    What would you like in an alternative? The native messaging is awesome.

    There are other "chat" apps but not messaging.

    I use Outsider and WhatsApp. IM+ is pretty cool since you can use many different types of messenger services, like FB and Yahoo.

    Default is the best. Windows Phone doesn't need alternative messaging app.

    I just received a HTC Trophy and need to copy my text messages but was told that I needed to get a third party messaging app. Any suggestions of a good app, ideally to copy from old phone to new one or even to copy from phone to computer? I need to keep my old text messages!
