So I was in the middle of typing a text message and wasn't able to finish it. When I closed out I got a message saying, "sent to drafts" Now for the life of me I can't seem to locate where that saved draft went on my samsung fascinate? Any ideas on where this mystery draft is at? Thus far the phone has been very, very intuitive except for this.
Blackberry user for the last 6 years. Just left the Storm & received my DInc today! A friend of mine sent me a mms with a sound file attached that I want to use when receiving text messages. I clicked the message & saved the file but cant seem to locate it anywhere. Anyone know how I can locate this file & set it as my default text sound?
I have a Rogers Magic unlocked. I am in China using China Unicom GPRS. It works very well. However I want to be able to save incoming sms messages in the phone. Perhaps even in folders such as "drafts". My old cheap Nokia could do this. When I now get an incoming message I can only delete it or leave it in the "inbox".
i am new to this phone and all its features, i am very pleased with all aspects except for the way text messages are received, i dont appear to have any traceability on weather they are received or sent messages and also i dont appear to have a date ie it reads "yesterday" or "12.35" , i was advised that if i downloaded sms backup this would be resolved please advise.is this app free and how do i get it to work once i have downloaded it?
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?
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 just downloaded the 2.2 update and none of my text messages are coming though. I tried Chomp, Handcent and the native app and it keeps freezing and force closing at the screen. It doesn't even show my contacts in the messaging app.
I do not yet have the incredible but am considering it. I have never had a phone like this, I have had my env2 for two years. I never liked using the keyboard when you open it, I am so much faster doing it on the front screen with itap on the numbers. Does the droid have a setting like this where you can change it from a keyboard to a number pad and text that way? Help would be appreciated, I am a big texter and it will be a big factor.
Anybody else have/had this problem. My phone doesn't care where I am. I could be standing outside, driving, in my apartment (where I've gotten it to locate me plenty of times), ANYWHERE..."Unable to locate"
My husband and I have moments. We both text quite a bit and for some reason, on his phone when you start typing a name in the "to" field of the text message, it does not give the option of choosing from matching contacts. But mine does. Is there a setting that I need to change? Anyone having the same issue?
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.
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)?
When I select a person's name on my text messaging list, it opens to a different person. I accident sent a text to the wrong person because of this, oops. It's been happening since I got my phone for the most part, but it didn't start to bother me until now because it seems to be happening more frequently. Anyone fixes for this?
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've had my Eris for a good while now and just started to have some problems. The other night, I tried to flash a new rom and can't move my trackball in the Amon Recovery menu. I have read that on here and there are some other issues involving that.
Secondly, I was just using my phone today and noticed that when at my home screen, my phone would just slide to the left 2 screens. The trackball would move by itself. When I'm in my browser the trackball moves by itself also. It just scrolls down to the next link.
When I type my cursor jumps all over the place. If I leave the cursor sit for a couple seconds the cursor jumps to the left to the beginning of the message.
I am rooted usng Froyo 34 and updated on Android 2.2
I've been using BrowserTexting, paid for the premium and it's been awesome. While my phone is charging somewhere in my room, I can use my laptop to reply back to whatever text I receive.
Thing is, I'm using Viber to text friends overseas. I was wondering if there are any apps or any way to integrate all text messaging to the default android SMS messenger so I can use BrowserTexting? I know Viber text messages use the data plan, but it would be awesome if I could also use BrowserTexting to text through my Viber app. Or at least is there a way for me to also use my PC to text through Viber?
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?
How important texting is now a days and mine got messed up I nwas sending my friend a youtube link througth a text anf then my phone says rthe application messaging (process com.android.mms) has stopped unexpectadly please try again. I tried everything I even pulled out the battery for 5 minutes and the same thing keeps happening.
I am a Sprint Hero owner looking forward to buy the Epic 4G.
I've seen a lot of videos of the Captivate and Vibrant and when they show the Messaging app it shows the bubble (kind of IPhone look) and I was wondering if you can change the look to the regular android look?
Maybe by pressing "Menu" you can change it or something.
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.
