when I was using my Omnia, I noticed that when sending text messages it was the smartest phone I'd ever used. On Verizon, if you write a text message longer than 160 characters, it won't send any more than that to a non-Verizon subscriber. The Omnia inherently split excessively long text messages into separate messages, instead of what normal phones do, by sending the whole thing and hoping the server splits it for you.
The Droid acts like a dumbphone with both the stock SMS app as well as Handcent. I want it to split messages when they are longer than 160 characters, because I have a lot of friends that aren't Verizon members - or worse yet that it doesn't send the whole thing, Google Voice users. Is there a text messaging app that doesn't have this issue of sending long text messages to non-verizon subscribers?
New user. New Droid X in hand. I have a text+talk plan with VZW, and none of the SMS messages I composed actually sent (I'd attach a screen shot, but ShootMe only seems to be designated for rooted devices). Is there something I'm missing, else I will call VZW. To recap, I went to my contacts, found the name, and next to their number I hit the message icon. I composed, hit send, and nothing. Now I see Xes next to the messages. Two of the recipients are also VZW customers.
I just got my x a few days ago and have never had a smartphone (i'm coming from the Dare)...i was trying to send a picture in a text message today, and it sent it horizontal... i took the picture vertically...and when i attached it to my text message it sent it sideways. so i rotated the picture 90 degrees and sent it, and it was still sideways.... anyone know how to fix this? i take most of my pics vertically...and i don't want them posting to facebook or sent to my fam sideways!
I need to send an image file on my sdcard using email in my application. Note that I don't want user to get option to use messaging or other ways to send the file. My current code, as shown below, gives option of both email and messaging whereas I want the user to get only emailing option.
It looks like you can send an app with the new version of Bump. This seems to include paid apps. Which completely circumvents the Android Market, of course. 1.) How is this possible? I thought access to apps themselves was off limits to API developers. 2.) If this is the case, why is Google not remote uninstalling Bump, and instead promoting it in the Android Market? (I haven't tried actually sending the paid app, so maybe it fails at that point - can anyone confirm? I hope to be proven wrong here) (I saw this using a Nexus One)
I am unable to send or receive/download MMS messages on my droid with neither Handcent nor factory installed messaging program. When i try to send/ download MMS, it just hangs (little icon keeps going in circles like it's working but never finishes, nor are the messages sent). It's not reception. It's not impatience ( it's been hanging for days sometimes).
I used to snap a pic on my Samsung Sway, was given the option to send in a message, then it resized and off it went. How do I snap a pic and send in a message on my incredible? I have the manual downloaded and printed all 206 pages and still don't understand the resizing.
Having some issues around the picture messaging: Android 2.1 Nordic x10i, just sayings "message cannot download" - I can send but I cannot receive. Rogers Wireless. Any ideas? I flashed my x10a to an x10i and manually entered in all the settings for Rogers:
Name: Rogers MMS APN: media.com Username: media Password: mda01 Server: 172.25.0.107 MMSC :http://mms.gprs.rogers.com MMS Proxy: 10.128.1.69 MMS Port: 80 MCC: 302 MNC: 72 (If that doesn't work try 720, its already filled in, leave it at what it is) APN Type: mms
How to fix the MMS issue with MIUI V5 on the HTC One XL(AT&T version). I noticed that the One S has a fix, however I can't figure out what they are saying about replacing the framework files and what not. If your not familiar with the issue, trying to send/receive MMS causes the messaging app to force close.
Got a T-mobile pulse with unlimited txt's and data.
When i type a txt message, as soon as i hit 4 txt,s in length a message flags us saying 'converting message to mms'. Which it promptly does. If i send the message it does indeed send it as an mms. Anything under 4 in length is sent as a txt message
I spoke to T-mobile and they said update software to fix it. Which i did. And it did not fix it.
Phoned them back and they did not have a clue.
Not being able to send long text messages without being charged mms service rate.
I recently bought a HTC Hero with sprint. i took a picture and tried to send it via text message..i receive error of " Message size limit reached...sorry, you cannot attach this your message" Also, i cannot view a picture message sent to me. i tried also saving it to my 4gb card but cannot find where to view the files in my sd card...
Im looking to get a Droid X or 2 but I have recently been hitting over 500 texts per month.
I just read about the new Google Voice and how it is able to send and receive text messages. I dont seem to understand how it works can someone explain this to me?
As far as I know, when you install GV you signup and then get a #, from there I give that # to everyone to text me (not my cell phone #) and GV just stays on in the back ground all the time waiting for texts?
And, does this use the data connection to do all of this or use the phone miniutes?
How can I cause my app to add a button to another app, the text messaging app for instance? I want to add a button and then listen for when it is pressed, at which point code from my app would execute. In the notepad exercise 1 tutorial from the dev guide, there's a link that says "add a button to an existing application!" but this just links to the common development tasks. I've searched this but haven't found anything helpful.
My HTC Desire was running well but I've developed a really irritating issue which seems to have started since the Froyo update (O2). Quite often when I send text/sms messages I get the Unable To Send error warning in the top left of the main screen. At first I was hitting the Resend option all the time but it keeps coming back and I noticed that if I check my text messages All Messages box then the message has actually been sent, yet the Unable to Send message persists until I use the Clear option. Has anyone else noticed the same thing?
I'm gonna be buying the Samsung Galaxy S in a couple of hours and I wanted to ask y'all: 1.) Is there a built in GMail app or do I have to download something new? 2.) Is the default text messaging good or do I need to download something better? 3.) What is a good browser for this phone? Are there any cool tricks which you guys would like to share? I went through the stickies and looked at how I can protect myself from Malware, etc. I think I know the basics. I apologize if I sound silly, this is my first Android phone and the reason why I am getting it is because of the awesome reviews. I'm also shifting from being a devout Nokia user to something totally different so I am kinda anxious, you know?
I've decided to do a search for some other possible apps to replace the stock text messaging system. So far I've downloaded chompSMS, Handcent SMS, and SMS (which seems to be an enhanced version of the stock one) Curious on which ones you guys are running and the benefits of some over the others? I do like the apps over the stock one since you can reply to the text immediately after unlocking the phone and don't have to click an actual icon.
Just got my Eris. So far it really kicks a$$. But I do miss Windows Live since I'm a hotmail user (no switch to gmail comments please).My desktop gmail through the web is set up to "Send As" my hotmail account, but if I send a new email via my phone, it sends it from my gmail username.I did a search and it was inconclusive. Does anyone know of a configuration to send new mail with the phones native email as a "Send As?"If not, does K-9 only poll gmail or is it a live sync?
when you click on the Text Messaging icon that your text messages lag as they appear in the display (for example, I see phone numbers first associated with each message, and then I have to wait a few seconds before names slowly pop up in place of each number)?
so my droid incredible began to slow down && i had to figure out what was making my phone so slow.. come to find out.. it was Handcent SMS -- the text messaging app i had been using ever since i bought the phone.. i updated it the last time it notified me of an update && then it stopped working... always force closing.. so i had to use chomp SMS instead.. but i hate chomp -- handcent is ten times better.. i tried reinstalling handcent on my phone but i couldnt even find it in the android market so i was assumed the maker removed it from the store.. do any of you know of any other text messaging apps that are really good for the droid incredible? or do you know of any way that i could possibly put handcent SMS back on my phone?
