Had my desire for about 4 months now, tres happy with it, one of the first apps i downloaded to use instead of the stock was Handcent for SMS.Today I take it out to send a text and the conversation screen is blank!Can't find texts anywhere - including if I go into the traditional 'messaging'.And then to top it off, I send a text to my sister and it goes to my wife!? Despite the conversation window showing the correct name and profile photo.Anyone else had any issues with Handcent? Reading other posts, I now know that its also a battery drainer, so I'll be uninstalling it, but I'd like me messages back first!
Most of the people I keep in touch with live hours away, and while phone calls definitely have their place most of the time I just like the convenience of texting.The problem is that Android phones seem to have a difficult time deleting more than a couple hundred or so texts at a time.I experienced this with my Hero actually ended up getting rid of it after a few months because each time I tried to delete more than 100 texts or so it would freeze, reboot, and then RESEND random old texts to people.A dozen at a time.People were starting to think I was losing my mind, and I ended up getting rid of the phone.(sort of a funny problem now that I look back on it)At least the Evo hasn't sent random texts to people yet.It just throws a temper tantrum and completely refuses to delete large threads.
Currently I have over 2700 texts in one thread and as a result the messages app is seriously slow. But when I try to delete them the messages app crashes/freezes and even after killing the task it does not sort itself so I am forced to reboot.How the hell do I delete these!? Is there another way or do I need to wait for the next software update that I care about? The lag is the least of the issues, I believe this is also causing SMS Popup to crash (now uninstalled) but I really love this app.
Got my X10 this morning and I can't for the life of me find out how to delete individual texts instead of the whole thread. How can I save the important ones whilst clearing out the dead wood? I've been trawling through here all day so.
I have had the 'low memory' notification on my phone for a while, plus Handcent has been extremely laggy lately... so I decided to delete some of my SMS as I have never deleted them and Im sure I have thousands... I have tried to delete the threads in handcent, force delete in handcent, and delete in the stock messages app.. and every single time the phone winds up hanging and eventually the program will FC.
When I get a reply to a text I sent / replied to, the popup for Handcent shows the first message in the string of texts. I would prefer that it showed the most recent text (the incoming text). Is there any way to change this?
For whatever reason, some of my contacts don't notify me when they send texts. The pop-up box shows up, but no notification at the status bar and no sound. It only happens for a few of my contacts and others work.
This is a multi question post kinda =). If I kill Handcent with task killer and put my phone in sleep mode with a single press of the power key I will not get any texts until I wake my phone up and then they all roll in. If I don't kill the task I seem to get texts while the phone is idle and asleep. Also I set the default text app the hancent now when ever I send a text it only opens handcent which is good, but if I receive a text it opens handcent the default app and google voice.
Any ideas on how to sort this out ? I did a forum search but did not find any thing that solved my issues.
Having some trouble getting handcent configured right. I want it to only show the notification in the top status bar and the dock. I do not want the popup window. Can someone tell me which settings to use? I have tried everything and cannot get it right.
Can anyone verify this? Myself and several other EVO owners have reported that they aren't showing up on both rooted and non-rooted phones. I downloaded both of them last week when I got my EVO, but I had to factory reset for root, and now I can't find them. Could someone test it out?
Just downloaded Handcent and the settings that I want on it are not saving. For example I want vibrate only when phone is in vibrate mode. That is not working at all. I also disabled notifications in the notification bar and I'm still getting them. Don't know if being on a custom rom (omj) would affect any of this. Pretty annoying though and was wanting to know if anyone else is having this sort of problem. I also rebooted the phone and no dice still.
Is there a way to backup the Handcent settings? Took me a couple hours to completely customize Handcent the way I wanted it and now if I upgrade to Froyo I'll lose all the settings. Titanium Backup doesn't backup anything but the application.
After the OTA I have discovered (to my frustration) that the email I have been deleting from my Eris is being permanently deleted from my Yahoo Plus account. I have searched here and all over trying to see if there is new settings or what but can't find anything to include the "don't delete from server" setting for the account.
With my other yahoo accounts (free) I didn't have the option to keep them on the server and accepted that as it was a struggle to get the free accounts up early on.
Keep the emails I delete from my phone on the server?
The problem that happens is tuat google thinks I am Spanish and therefor makes google.com display in Spanish. I tried changing and deleting the cache in the browser, tried changing the local settings, nothing wants to work? Right now I have set my homepage to the English version using the url codes, but that is only a temp fix.
My week old phone seems to randomly select contacts and deletes them from my phone. I have to then log onto the website and go into the synchronisation page and rummage around in the contacts trash to restore them and then re-sync..
I have the Google Sync selected within the Data Synchornisation settings but I have auto synchronisation turned off.
Do I need to change my sync settings or is there a problem?
I just recently downloaded the handcent SMS and when I go into settings then custom style it will stay in it for a few seconds then I get a black screen and then it goes back to settings. I can't customize anything, and it does the same when i'm reading my messagse.
My Hero show new messages in the notification bar but occasionally when I open a text from the notification area it opens a blank page and deletes it from the messages list. Anyone else experienced anything similar?
I recently synced my Facebook contact to my phone so that I could have their Facebook pic as the pic on my phone. I do not want to have all my Facebook contacts in my Phone. I tried deleting them from my phone but it says that I have to delete them from Facebook in order to do so.
Given a listview that shows checkboxes next to a list of people, I want to be able to get the names (in Strings for example) of the people who are checked. I have set my listview mode to allow for multiple checks.
Will get the positions but I can't figure out how to iterate over the listview to get the names. Also Eclipse tells me that getCheckItemIds is not a valid method for ListView.
I have a ListView that just contains a CheckedTextView. I have a very simple CursorAdapter that populates CheckedTextViews. When I click on an item, I can see that I am responding to the correct row, store the value in my model and the CheckedText gets checked. However, when I scroll down and then back up again, while I see that the model contains the correct value (in #bindView), calling #setChecked on the CheckedTextView has no effect. Ie All items are unchecked. Code...
I am using a ListView in which only one item can be checked at a time.
This is my custom list_row.xml :
I populate the list in onCreate() using a normal array adapter :
When the list is displayed, I want to have, say the 5th item, in the list as Checked. How can I go about doing this? I know CheckedTextView has a function called setChecked(), but how can I get my 5th item from the list to apply this function on it?
I have list of checkboxes in list binded by Custom simpleCurserAdapter. in my Custom simpleCurserAdapter ive override the newview and binview with my modifications. ive managed somehow to do multichoice.. wierd thing after i delete any item from my list , the first item's checkbox is being checked all of a sudden.. how does that happen? how can i solve it?
code: my curser SimpleCursorAdapter class:
I couldnt find another way of doing this, but this is how i set listeners to my checkboxses
Now this is code part from the ListActivity class which desbribes the button which deleting the checked Box items
