HTC Incredible :: HTC Incredible / How Can I Tell My Text Is Delivered?
Aug 30, 2010
On my old phone (Samsung something) I used to be able to see my text message would have a green arrow when they were sent, and then they got a black check mark when they were delivered (as long as the recipient has Verizon).Is there a similar system on the Incredible? How can I tell?
so just to clarify, this isn't another one of those "Why doesn't my message show as delivered?" threads. I already know it CAN be done, I found that out accidentally. It worked once, but I don't know how to make it work again.What I did when it worked: I sent my sister a message and then quickly switched over to iheartradio. Her message wasn't sending and the station was stuck at connecting, so I power cycled the phone. Then the message sent and to the right of it there's a green circle with a check mark. If I touch that, it says "Report" and then the receiver's name and "Status: Received." So,does this only work when there's an error to begin with or what?!
When someone on the verizon network sends me a text longer then 160char's, they recieve a message that looks like the following: MEssage delivered to 5555551234 as plain text destination does not support enhanced messaging.and I recieve a message saying:the preceding msg modified, media objects were removed.Why do they recieve this does is this phone seriously not able to recieve longer texts than 160 or does it not automatically split it up?? How can I prevent this annoyance from occuring?
This is the only complaint i have since upgrading to 2.1 but its a pretty big one. I have tired default messenger and handcent and still get the "Not delivered" message althought it was delivered. Yes I did the *228 thing also. Any other app, or fix I could do?
How to be able to select text from a text message? Because I cannot figure it out. I want to be able to select certain things and copy and paste into navigation or another text/email. and long press which I thought would allow me to doesnt.
So I received a text message from someone not in my contact list. The sms came from someone that said ##########@vtext.com.I didn't know who it was and responded who are you. Now I realized who it is before they responded back and want to text that number again but have no idea how to find that text.Anyone have any idea how to view texts that are not attached to a contact or even review all texts for that matter?
I just got my Droid Incredible and I was wondering how you know that a text you sent was delivered. On my old phone there was a check mark next to the message if it was delivered to a Verizon customer.This was nice because then I would know if that person had their phone on.Is there anything like this on this phone?
When I first got my Incredible, the vibrate worked perfectly on texts and calls. But ever since I rooted and started swapping ROM's frequently, it no longer works for texts. I read about downloading Sound Manager and checking Vibrate settings but everything is right there too... The only ROM that vibrate works with is Virtuous, however I don't really like Sense so I'm currently on Ruby 1.1.1.
I must be an idiot but I cannot figure out how to select text that I have input.Say I type a paragraph and want to copy only part of it (this is still text I'm still inputting) . I long press to get the menu and choose 'select text', I get the cursor with the arrow but when I try anything, the entire paragraph gets selected. This is ONE thing the iPhone did great. Which leads to this question, is there an app that simulates the iPhone text selector (magnifying glass) ?
when I try to post a new topic, I received a email saying that I am treated as spam and my message is not able to delivered. And there is a link to dreamhost. I believe that is a spam email and if any one is able to see my post, can you please reply me so that I know my posts can be seen.
Can someone please tell me how to set my text messages so they all are in the same format?? I have handscent and then whatever the phone has. Some people's message appear in one format and some the other .Also--what is deal with Chomp vs. handscent vs. whatever else?? Too many choices coming from a non-android phone!
About the only thing I miss from my old WinOS phone is the arrow keys on the keyboard. I don't see that on my Dinc. So, how do you navigate inside a text field? If I want to correct a letter in the middle of a long piece of text, how do I get there? Currently I am using my big fat finger to try and place the cursor where I want but that is certainly not very accurate and usually takes several tries to get it where I want.Earlier today I was editing an email addr in contacts and the long text exceeded the text window. I couldn't figure out how to even see the beginning of the text.
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?
When I receive a text and try to reply I cannot enter into qwerty when I turn phone on side. I'm using Handcent, but not sure if i'm receiving on Handcent. It only happens when I first, initially, get the text notification.
I've searched but can't find anyone mention this: I go to contacts ("people") and long-hold menu to bring up the soft keyboard. Anything I type displays on a gray transparent pop up box that stays on top of contacts list, and I can't get rid of it until I reboot. This happens to my friend as well. Is this a feature? How do I get rid of the text box?
I seem to in almost all instances not be receiving text messages. This is definitely hit or miss. I've determined it's not service related as it's only happening to me, and it's not location related. It's not related to the services of the people texting me. It's definitely not every single time, but it's a lot. My messages seem to be going out without a problem. After extensive testing I seem to have narrowed down this problem somewhat. There seems to be a problem with the messaging app on my phone. I determined this by downloading Handcent SMS. The moment I did this, I started receiving text messages again consistently and without problem. Uninstalling the program put me int he same place I was before. Can anyone determine what the problem may be with this additional information. Perhaps I have done something ill-advised to my phone so here is as much information about it that I can think of:
Firmware Version - 2.1update1 Baseband Version - 1.00.03.04.06 Kernel Version - 2.6.29-cc1c2268 htc-kernel@and18-2#1 Build number - 1.22.605.0 CL161493 release eyes Software number - 1.22.605.0 Browser Version - WebKit 3.1 PRI Version 1.28_002 PRL Version 51920 ERI Version 5
I am running a 2.1 rooted phone with (as far as I know) the stock ROM that came with the Incredible (prior to 2.2). I purchased the phone with 2.1 and it did an OTA update to 2.2. However there were so many problems with the update that I decided to go back to 2.1. I did this and rooted which seems to prevent the OTA update even though I don't have a custom ROM. In addition to Rooting, I disabled (using the method of moving the files to a disabled folder) CityID Footprints FriendStream Peep Teeter
Aside from this and installing some apps, I haven't done anything that I can think of to the phone that may have caused this problem. There are only a few apps that I've installed that I didn't have before downgrading and rooting my phone. Wireless Tether VLC Stream & Convert Startup Auditor (Messages has NOT been disabled) IncrediLight
I do occasionally receive a text message but it seems more "miss" than hit. As far as I know, I was not having this problem before I went to 2.2 (and then downgraded back to 2.1). Since I'm back at 2.1, I don't see how it should be any different from before unless I did something. Seeing as how it doesn't look like anyone else has had this problem after rooting (as far as I've been able to see in the forum). I'm hoping I've missed something. I've tried *228 option 2 (and option 1). Nothing else seems affected, not call quality or email or any data services that I can tell. I'm of course perfectly willing to completely reset my phone but only want to do that if it will actually do some good.
A while back I was looking through either the stock messaging app or Handcent and saw an option to auto reply to text messages, and you could change the text to make it say whatever you needed it to say. Today I tried looking for that option again and didn't find anything. I searched on the forum but only found other apps that I would need to install in order to do this. Hopefully someone knows what option I am talking about or uses it. If not, I can always use Tasker to do this, but prefer to use the messaging apps.Edit: So I found the answer about 30 seconds after posting this. Only for missed calls.Text option when dismissing a call
I woke up this morning with my phone saying i have 2 texts. i then open up my messages and ALL of my messages are gone. my inbox is completely empty anyone have this issue before? anyway to get them back? ive already rebooted my phone
Is there a way to not have it vibrate with notification sound on incoming texts and have it vibrate when I turn phone to vibrate mode. I cant seem to figure this out, I want it to vibrate when I have vibrate mode on but I want sound only when I have it off of vibrate mode. I know you can go into settings each time but I want to avoid that.
My phone will not vibrate when I receive and SMS text message. I have checked and unchecked the vibrate box multiple times and nothing changes. It is not a big deal unless I have my phone on vibrate mode because I am in a meeting or something. During those times, I have no way of knowing if I received a message outside of pulling out my phone and checking it every few minutes. Anyone else having this problem or have any suggestions?
I have recently came across a problem with my text messaging on my HTC Incredible.. I was deleting a thread because it was too large. As it was deleting I received a text from that person and now my phone thinks there is a new message that I have not checked and it keeps popping up in my status bar. Anyone know how to get rid of this?
I want to know if anyone is experiencing the same issue and if they have any fixes. I lost all of my text messages three times since getting the phone last Wednesday. The first time, someone was trying to send me an MMS. It didn't go through, and caused a Force Close (for which you have no choice but to select OK). After the error, all my previous text messages were gone. I immediately installed SMS Backup and SMS Backup and Restore. I like that SMS Backup is almost instantaneous back-up (to your Google account), but you cannot restore the messages to the phone. SMS Backup and Restore will back up your messages to your SDcard and restore, but it only runs at a pre-selected time (unless you manually sync before the selected time). Twice after the first error, I've been in the middle of texting and received the Force Close due to "Message Download Failure"; and after both times I lost all messages again. I was able to restore the older messages, but not the ones sent and received after the backup schedule. The only thing I've done is used SWYPE instead of the stock keyboard. But this seems like a network error.
This morning around 8am central time I was prompted with a message saying a new update was available. So I downloaded it using my wireless network at home. I've been at work all day and my incredible has been laggy and I can only send txts using google voice. I usually use handcent but I uninstalled it bc it kept foreclosing after the update. Ive tried repeatedly to use the default message app but when I select it, the only thing that comes up is a blank white screen n then the forceclose message. I haven't received an incoming txt all day either.
I'm a huge txting kinda gal. And REALLY miss the little box notifying me that my friends have received, or read the text. Is there a setting for the Sense Basic txting to show that? I couldn't seem to find one? Or does anyone know a good app (BESIDES ChompSMS) that would do this?
Was wondering if there was a way to prevent text messages from certain people from populating the default messaging application for the Incredible. I realize that Handcent does this, but I am not the biggest fan of this on the Incredible, I really did enjoy it on the Droid though. On the topic of Handcent's blacklist, does this block text messages from people on the blacklist or does it just hide them?
