    Hey guys I'm new here, but I'm not new to phones. I've been using WebOS and the biggest question mark I had on my head with WP7 was the lack of differentiating colors in the Messaging app between sender/receiver. It does show the left and right thing, but if you look at

    you notice that it's different. Has the homebrew community had any point to try to change this or is it completely hardcoded in to the OS? I'm not very familiar with the availability to change things in WP7 so forgive my ignorance.

    I'm currently a webOS user and love this idea as well if it's possible.

    It looks nice in Mango with the text offset and the color change the messages stand out.

    Can you take any screenshots? I saw it in Joe Belfiore's Mango preview, but it was like .05 seconds and it was hard to tell.

    Does WP7 not have a screencap combo?

    I think something about this changed in the newest version of Mango. On my phone I had changed one of the color themes so I had a white background and black accent color. I could have sworn back in the first Mango preview that my texts would be black and responses would be in gray. So the OS appeared to lighten the color programmatically, which I thought was pretty neat.

    Now with the second beta both my texts and responses show up black, which makes me sad. I really liked the black/gray texts, it looked really nice. I wish I had a screenshot of it.
