Review: HTC Thunderbolt
Sense and Android together offer a wide range of messaging options on the Thunderbolt, with all the basics covered and then some.
There are several different avenues to get your email. First, there is the HTC-made email program, which was designed to support Exchange email accounts. It offers a nice user interface for sorting through messages. The Thunderbolt works with pretty much any POP3/IMAP4 email account you could throw at it with this generic email app. Then there's the native Gmail client, which continues to be one of the best mobile email experiences available.
There are two SMS apps on the Thunderbolt. One is the native Android SMS app, the other is the HTC-made Sense SMS app. The main difference is that the HTC app offers a widget that lets you page through your messages from the home screen.

Google Talk is the only native IM app on board. Want more? Go fishing in the Android Market.
There are a number of ways to connect to social networks with the Thunderbolt. First, there's HTC's FriendStream. The FriendStream app reaches into your Facebook and Twitter accounts and pulls down status updates in a stream that you can look at quickly. You can also use HTC's Peep application for Twitter, though I prefer the official Twitter application. The native Facebook app is also better than FriendStream for more fully interacting with your account.
