Sprint's 6.5 forces you to use "HTC messaging" over "WM messaging". Is there a fix?

The new Sprint OEM 6.5 ROM forces you to use the "HTC messaging" text messages now when responding to a incoming text or when you hit "SEND MESSAGE" from within a address book contact.

I absolutely hate the "HTC messaging" style of text messages for 4 reasons:

#1 You cannot use "My Text" to insert pre-written text messages
#2 The soft button shows "BACK" where it shows "SEND" on the "WM messaging" style
#3 You cannot add names to the "TO FIELD"
#4 The "HTC messaging" never saves to draft or allows cut and paste.
(This is a MAJOR pain in the ass when everything you typed gets deleted when you hit the soft button "BACK" because your conditioned to hit the same soft button for "SEND" in the "WM messaging" style.


How can we make the "WM messaging" the default text format or even the only format for texting with the new stock Sprint 6.5 ROM ?????

Thank you.


The below is what I mean by "WM messaging" where you will see "SEND" and "MENU" at the bottom underneath the threaded texts.
The "MENU" below will allow you to insert "MY TEXTS".
Also, when composing new text messages in "WM Messaging" you can add multiple recipients by just typing out their names and all unsaved texts are automatically saved in "DRAFTS".
WM Messaging is MUCH BETTER than HTC Messaging.



The top left 2 (of 6) screens in the pic below show the "HTC messaging" screen. There is "BACK" and "MENU" at the bottom, BUT the "MENU" does NOT bring up "MY Texts"

Sounds like you are trying to get the classic Outlook/Inbox style SMS instead of the threaded SMS. I don't have a Touch Pro 2, but I would assume you would be able to do the same things that were done before with 6.1. There is a registry key that you can add or just install these programs to make the change for you:

I'm running a custom 6.5 rom for the Touch Pro and it works on it. Hopefully it'll work on yours too. Good luck!

I like the threaded view.
The one that allows you to use "My Texts", add recipients, has the "SEND" button in the right place, and saves to drafts.

I think he means he wants to use WM Messaging and not HTC Messaging. WM Messaging is better which is why he wants to use it.
