I want to buy a good sms app which is fast & works without any issues. I have been Nokia user & I like old inbox / drafts / outbox kind of interface. Delivery reports also will be nice [is there any setting for delivery reports in iPhone ?]

and I also read iRealsms is very slow. I am creating this thread because I couldn't find much info on newer versions of these softwares.

Please suggest me one good SMS app :)

I haven't had any issues with iReal. I did at one time, if I got a number of texts at one time it would lock up and restart my phone. But I found it was a conflict with something else. Since then, I have not had any issues with it. I love it and it themes out much easier that Bite SMS. I have tried them both. I have not tried TAlert, but only because had already purchased 2 SMS replacements and did not want a 3rd.

I do recommend IRealSMS. Just because of the Bluetooth feature.

BiteSMS works great, I've never used iReal so I can't compare the two. BiteSMS is super simple :)

To me and to say I have only used BiteSMS I have to say it worked great. The others looked pretty cool but BiteSMS has worked great and had good luck out of it.

Just my 2 cents ;-)

I tested BiteSMS, but I prefer iRealSMS. I've been using iReal for about a year and a half and it works great.

bitesms has been good to me in the past but right now im just using the default ios5 notifications, someone needs to make it so that you can tap the text notification like on mobilenotifier and have the instant quick reply instead of it opening that app

I own iRealSMS and haven't had it installed since buying Tlert.....now on IOS 5, and using iRealSMS again, I'm very impressed on how well integrated into Notifications..:)
