Android :: How To Fix Handcent Not Sending Mms?

Sep 7, 2010

I searched for this but didn't come up with any answers. So I use Handcent, and it's awesome, but when it comes to taking a photo and then sending it via text, it won't send. It'll say the file size is too big and then I get the little red x to resend, but the same thing happens. When I open the stock text message app, take a photo, and send it the app resizes it automatically. What's the issue? How do I get Handcent to resize the photo automatically? I'm on a Droid2 if that makes a difference.


HTC EVO 4G :: MMS Sending (Handcent)

Jun 17, 2010

I have had no problems sending mms on the EVO until tonight. I sent two picture MMS today no problem. However, tonight I am unable to get anything out. I've tried turning my wifi off, but i can't send either way. I just get the cycling circular "working" icon to the left of the message and nothing happens. It should be noted that the stock Messaging app still sends fine.

HTC EVO 4G :: Sending MMS Messages Via Handcent?

Jun 10, 2010

Anyone having problems sending MMS messages via handcent? This worked fine on my HERO, but doesn't work on my Evo. I can send MMS messages via the stock messaging app, but handcent just spins and never sends the message. Normal SMS messages work fine.

Android :: Handcent Not Sending Pics

Nov 21, 2009

Anybody have any thoughts why handcent will not send out a pic? I tried with the pre-installed messaging app and it went through fine. Is there any setting I may be missing with handcent.I checked the settings option and found nothing. It tells me it is resizing and everything, and it has worked in the past. I'd really prefer to use handcent, but will switch to the other if need be I guess.

Samsung Captivate :: Handcent Sending 2 Mms / How To Fix?

Sep 27, 2010

I'm going to post this here first as this may be Galaxy S specific. I have handcent installed and love it. It's been working great. However tonight when I went to test out sending a picture to my girlfriends phone she received two copies of it. It shows up on my screen as me sending one, but on hers as if i did it twice in a row. What I suspect is that Handcent is sending one and the default messaging app is sending the other. When I open up either of them they both show the thread and show 1 picture sent. I've looked through all the menus in both apps and can't figure out what the problem is.

HTC Desire :: Handcent Not Sending Text Messages To Multiple Contacts

Jul 9, 2010

I've been using Handcent since I've had my Desire, but since the last few updates it seems to have developed a fault when sending the same sms message to multiple contacts. If I send a message to say 3 people, it either force closes, or comes up with the error message not sent. If it comes up with the latter, the messages are queued & sent 1 after the other. I was able to do this no problem before, so has anyone else experienced this in Handcent?

Android :: Handcent - Retrying Sending Text Messages In Poor Signal Area

Feb 12, 2010

I get a poor signal at home (did on my Nokia), so half the time when I send a text, there won't be a signal to send it. I always then go and put my phone in a place where there is a signal and leave it..
With my Nokias, the phone would send it fairly quickly (usually within 10-15 minutes).

The message is still sat in Handcent with the whirling round icon next to it. If I copy the message, and resend it, whilst there's a signal, away it goes. I can't find any way to force the send when I want, and I left the resend in a signal area for 1hr 15 mins and it still hadn't sent..

HTC Desire :: Sending Text - Can't Figure Out If Sending A Message Via Facebook Or To Mobile Number

Jun 24, 2010

I have a friend who is added to my Desire's contact list.

1. He is on my Facebook contact. (His facebook pic appears in my Desire contact list)
2. He is my Gmail contact as well.
3. He is added as a 'Phone Contact' as well.

I sent him a text few days ago but don't remember if it was using facebook or my phone (network provider sms) but now when I go in to 'Messages' and send him a message, I just can't figure out if I am sending him a message via Facebook or to his mobile number.

Motorola Droid :: Had Handcent / Switched To ChompSMS / Back To Handcent

Jan 22, 2010

when the stock Messaging app wasn't cutting it, I installed Handcent.But it started flaking out on me, so I dumped it and went to the more-reliable chompSMS.I liked it a lot.But to be completely honest, I missed some of the features of Handcent. But reliability is Job 1, so I kept chompSMS for a few weeks.Then I heard that Handcent received a major update a few days ago, so I replaced chompSMS with Handcent. So far so good. I got all the features back, and I haven't had one single issue in days of texting. So if you're like me and you left Handcent for chompSMS, you may want to give the new version a spin.

I downloaded a widget called APN OnOff to try to have a widget that turns off 3G when Im not using it, like the Mobile Toggle in Sense. But ever since I turned off APN I cant send MMS messages. So I want to know if the MMS is related to APN and if I can turn APN back on, because the APN OnOff toggle doesnt work.Oh im currently using Chomp, and its not Chomps fault because I cant send MMSs through Chomp or the default Messages app.

HTC EVO 4G :: Evo Not Sending Or Receiving Mms

Nov 17, 2010

so I'm a new evo owner, had the phone for about 2 weeks.Love it, it's the best.Onto the problem.When I first got my phone I was sending and recieving pics no problem.A few days later I was not able to send a pic. I thought it might be too big, but knew that the evo should reduce the size and send it.After doing some reading online, I found many people suggested downloading handcent.I did this, but still can't send or receive mms. My phone is not rooted, don't know what that would do anyway.I know there are some hardcore evo users reading these threads and I see many people have had the same problem I have, but I have not found an answer to this yet.It's not a huge deal if I can't see the picture my buddy send me of his ass, but with this phone I should be able to see it if I want to.

HTC EVO 4G :: Sending SMS Or MMS To EMAIL?

Aug 17, 2010

I often find myself wanted to text a message...either text or perhaps a picture attachment through the Messaging not only a mobile number but to an EMAIL ADDRESS as well. I have a couple friends who prefer getting pictures on their computer instead of their phone so I might address the MMS to a few mobile phone number and then want to enter an EMAIL ADDRESS in my text message. On my old a matter of fact ALL my previous phones (Palm Centro, Couple Samsungs, Sanyo, etc...both smartphones and not-so-smart phones) I was able to type in, e.g., my name "Scott" and popup would show not only my mobile number but my EMAIL ADDRESS to select to use as an address in my SMS or MMS message.

HOWEVER, my my EVO, if I type in a contact name that has an associated email address ONLY THE MOBILE NUMBER comes up as a possible address for my text message. If I want to send to an email address (which you CAN do...text to email works fine...and vice versa) I have to M-A-N-U-A-L-L-Y type the whooooooole email address each and every time. I do NOT think there is a "setting" to change this but IS there a setting or some sort of workaround trick so that when I type a contact name with an email address the EMAIL OPTION is available in a text message "To" field??

HTC EVO 4G :: Sending 8MP Photos - Too Big?

Jun 3, 2010

on my Palm treo I send alot of pics to friends of various phones and carriers. They're no where near 8 megapixels though. My concern is, if I'm taking pics with the back camera, will the pics be too big to send to them? I'm guessing they'll be around 4 megabytes (plus or minus, depending on compression.) Won't that be kind of big for standard picturemail? Or does each carrier auto-resize the pics depending on the phone it's being sent to?

Android :: Handcent SMS Bug?

Aug 21, 2009

I've just downloaded the app to the HTC Hero. It works well, the only issue I have is that when it notifies me of a message it shows the number I have on the screen and when I go in and read the message then delete and close the program, it still shows the same number when it shouldn't have any number since I deleted my messages. Is this a problem with the Hero or some type of bug in the program?

Android :: Handcent SMS App

Jun 17, 2010

First let me say that the Handcent SMS application is a much better messaging app than the stock app that comes with the EVO. However, the app is a battery hog and was draining my battery at a rate of almost 8 % per hour. Reason I know this is because prior to installing this app, my battery life was great. After installing the app, battery drain was really bad. Decided to uninstall the app yesterday and back to about 2% drain per hour which is what I had prior to installing the app. So for those of you with poor battery life, pay attention to what apps you may have recently installed as some of them are not optimized for battery consumption.

Android :: What Else Besides Handcent?

Jun 14, 2010

I picked up my Droid on 6/5 and downloaded the latest Handcent that evening.Handcent is what the stock Messaging app should have been.However, I've noticed some problems with Handcent, and I'm very interested in another app.For one, it will intermittently split the messages when it shouldn't.In other words, it will take a message that is under 160 characters and send it out in two or three different messages. Not good.Two, I opened up the thread between my wife and I.I went to Batch mode so I could select which messages in the thread to be deleted. After selecting most of them, I then hit Delete selected. Every single message on the phone was deleted. I even went into the stock Messaging app and sure enough, they were all gone. Terrible.So,what else is out there besides Handcent? I'm completely fine with having to pay for the app, as long as it isn't buggy and it has the features of Handcent.

My question is how do I set handcent as my default sms receiver and get rid of the original from my homescreen? I have a shortcut on my homescreen which still shows that i have messages even though I've read them in handcent, and I don't know how to get rid of the original app from there.

HTC EVO 4G :: How To Download 'Handcent SMS'

Jun 7, 2010

Handcent SMS is arguably the best messaging app out there.But for the past few days it's been missing from Market. says it's because the Market isn't running right.
So after a few page visits, I found out that you can still download it without using market, and install it in some very easy steps.

1. Go to Market and download 'tattachapkinstaller'

2. Go to this link from your phone: and it will prompt you to download 'Handcent'. Click "Save".

3. Once it's downloaded, click on it and it will ask you to install it. Install it using the software you downloaded above (tatattchapkinstaller)

Here's a link for the skeptics. Handcent sms HomePage --sms plus software for android.And now I don't work for Handcent. I was just thrilled when I found out how to install it. I used to have it on my Verizon Droid.

Android :: Sending Lots Of SMS

Mar 23, 2010

I am working on an app that allows sending lots of text messages. I have two questions:-
1) If I send too many messages together (around 80), only about 10 actually go and the rest fail in the first try. Do networks limit how many sms can we send per second or something? Will pausing after every sms help in this case?
2) I believe Android shows a dialog box if we send more than 100 sms in an hour. I am sending SMS from a separate thread. Can Android block that thread if there are too many SMS being sent?

HTC EVO 4G :: MMS Not Sending Or Receiving And Buttons Always On

Jun 14, 2010

How can two EVO�s purchased at the same time have the most random problems?My girlfriend and I bought our EVO�s at the same time/place and both have completely different random problems.

#1) When we first got our phones we tested out a bunch of stuff including texting photos to each other. She got the ones I sent, but I didn�t receive hers. I thought it was something wrong with my phone, but after a bunch of testing, it looks like it�s hers. What makes it annoyingly weird is that I can receive texts with photos from her UNLESS she sends it in this manner: from the photo she chooses share, then the screen comes up to enter who to send it to. If she enters my name by hitting the search magnifying glass in the upper right and then chooses my name, I will not get the text. Every other way she sends it, I will receive the text. Makes zero sense as I can send her a photo text any which way from my phone and she gets it.

#2) My EVO has the 4 navigation buttons dimly lit all the time unless it�s plugged into the charger. Her phone does not. Not a huge deal, but I am concerned it is draining the battery just that much more unnecessarily.

HTC Hero :: O2 - Sending MMS Larger Than 4kb

Mar 30, 2010

Recently found settings that allow me to send MMS on O2 from an Unlocked (Orange) Hero.

Only problem is that no matter what I try I can never send/receive images bigger that 4kb. I understand that it's something to do with O2 not recognising the phone, therefore reducing the file size.

I presume a lot of people would have the same issue but has anybody got a work around for this? Something that tricks their servers into thinking that it's another phone perhaps?

I thought using Handscent might work as you can set the size but unfortunately the setting seems to be superseded by O2 when sending/receiving.

Android :: Sending Mail With K9

Oct 3, 2010

I have an HTC Magic running the stock Roger's 2.1 rom, using K9 mail with MobileMe. I find if I compose an email from scratch, no problems. But if I reply to a message it won't send... it just sits in the Outbox. If I manually force it to send from the Outbox it will usually go... but not always. Has anyone come across anything like this before? Seems pretty weird that a 'fresh' email will send, but not a reply (the only different seemingly being that K9 is filling in the To field itself). I guess in the meantime I could give another email app such as MailDroid a spin, but I'm rather fond of K9.
