HTC Droid Eris :: Handcent Sms And Htc Message Widget

Dec 17, 2009

I use handscent for text messaging, like it a lot. I also like(ed) the htc message widget (gives you a stack of your most recent texts on your home screen). The only problem is that i can not figure out a way to have the widget take me into handcent (rather then the htc native messaging app) when i hit either the list or compose butttons at the bottom of the widget. Anyone have any ideas or will the widget just always connect with the htc app?

HTC Droid Eris :: Handcent Vs Message

Apr 10, 2010

I have been using Handcent for just under a month. I like it very much. I have a question though. Since I no longer use ATK and been observing using System Panel; I notice that both are still running ACTIVE. Handscent has more CPU time then Message. More then half my txts come up as a quick text over the lock screen.Is that pulling from Handcent or Message?

HTC Droid Eris :: Handcent SMS Message Not Delivered

Mar 25, 2010

I've tried searching up the forums and found that some people had this bug and it was fixed by doing the *228 option 2. I tried that and when I use Handcent it still says the message is not delivered and sometimes it just flat out sends a blank message.The text is going to an email not an actual phone number but I'd like to keep handcent because I really like the pop up and the GUI. Would anyone have any other tips or tricks to help me get rid of this annoying error?Well i guess I forgot to mention some things.I updated my phone to 2.1 last night with the "new" leak I guess you call it.I tried restarting my phone, uninstalling and reinstalling handcent.

HTC Droid Eris :: 2.1 And Handcent Undelivered Message

May 17, 2010

So I updated (finally!!) to 2.1 OTA on Saturday morning. Ever since then, my Handcent app has been acting strangely. Seems at least half of the txts I send generate an "Undelivered message" error, and there's that lil red 'x' next to the msg in the convo. Thing is, I've checked with friends, and the texts are in fact being sent just fine. Anyone else having this problem? I tried uninstalling and reinstalling Handcent, to no avail. It's really annoying to have to delete the "undelivered messages" every time. Plus then I have no record on my phone of that sent txt.

HTC Droid Eris :: Handcent Or Phone - Receive Message Sound Very Low?

May 23, 2010

Usually my phone is on silent, and last night, I turned the ringtone volume up. So, I set my notification sound when I receive a message. Whenever I receive a message though, the sound is VERY faint and almost silent. The media volume is all the way up... Is this a phone or Handcent problem?

HTC Droid Eris :: Text Message History Clearing - Stock And Handcent

Jul 19, 2010

I use Handcent as my SMS program. I try to delete all threads (I have test history) and it doesn't take effect. All threads are still there after it asks me. I have cleared data and cache's on both the stock and Handcent apps in my app manager. When trying to delete all threads with my stock program, my phone typically freezes up and forces close. Anyone have similiar experiences, have answers? I even uninstalled Handcent thinking that would clear everything, re-installed and everything was still there.

HTC Incredible : Handcent - Whenever Send A Message It Says Message Failed - Retry Cancel

May 19, 2010

My problem is this, I downloaded Handcent and really like it, however, I can't send messages from home. I have marginal service here (around -98 avg.) but I do get 3G. Whenever I send a message it says Message Failed - Retry, Cancel? I've even had this problem in places with great coverage for both 3G and cell service. The stock messaging app works just fine. So what I've been doing is receiving messages with Handcent and then sending them using the stock app.

So, does anyone have any ideas of what I can do? Are there any settings that can be changed? Does handcent use 3G to send messages?

I'm now trying Chomp to see if that's any better. And, just an FYI, I'm having trouble with text messages, not MMS. I haven't tried sending any pics or videos yet, I've just been sending SMS.

Motorola Droid :: Handcent Sms Picture Message

Aug 20, 2010

I recently started having an issue when I try to save a picture from a picture message on handcent. I cannot see the picture in my gallery only until I reboot the phone. With the regular droid messaging program, the pictures appear right away. I am not sure if this is an issue since I am now running 2.2 on my droid. Anybody else having the same issue.

HTC Droid Eris :: 2.1 - Receiving Message Saying Message Not Downloaded

May 13, 2010

I was wondering if 2.1 still had the following bugs/problems that myself, and a lot of people seem to encounter with 1.5, or if it's phone specific not OS specific.

1. Problems receiving picture messages. Specifically receiving a message saying "Message not downloaded. Retransmission scheduled for XX:XX", even if you click "Download" button multiple times.

2. When receiving a text message longer than 160 characters, you get a message saying "The preceding messages modified. Media objects removed." and the sender gets a message saying that you do not support enhanced messaging service, even though you DO actually receive the entire message. I know the Incredible doesn't have this problem, but the Eris does.

HTC Droid Eris :: Handcent Hype

Jun 16, 2010

when i first got my eris (in Jan.) i installed this because everyone on here was saying how amazing it is! So i installed it. It didn't work properly and kept force closing. So i installed chomp. Chomp is amazing and i freakin love it. I still see people talking about hancent so i decided to give it another try last night. My g/f sent me a picture message 3 times and i didnt get a single one of those messages with handcent. it would randomly erase texts as soon as i replied to them. I quickly uninstalled it and ran back to chomp.

HTC Droid Eris :: Handcent SMS Themed

Apr 8, 2010

I have skinned Handcent SMS and changed a few things. Ask if you have any questions. Just install it like a normal application. Any suggestions are welcome.

Update 6/9/10:
-Optimized all png's so app runs faster and is more lightweight.

Update 6/5/10:
-Updated to Handcent version 3.0.4.

Updates 5/03/2010:
-Changed all text entry boxes to stock Android.
-Changed top bar to white.
-Changed all top bar icons to stock Android look.
-Changed send button to grey and made it square rather than rectangle.

Update 4/21/10:
-Changed all attachment icons to stock Android 2.0+ icons. (Screenshots)
-Changed settings icon to stock Android settings icon. (In conversation list, press menu, the settings button is changed now.)
-Changed 2 of the notification icons. One is the stock android black smiley icon, and one is the android 1.5 or 1.6 notification icon. Just scroll through the notification icons to find them.

Update 4/18/10:
-Updated to Handcent SMS version 2.9.36

Update 4/12/10:
-Resized icons so they don't look distorted on the dock of HelixLauncher.
-Recolored the send message button to go with the rest of the color scheme.

Update 4/10/10:
-Changed the "To:" text entry box for Handcent quick reply to white.

Update 4/9/10:
-Changed widget bubble color to black so the greens don't clash.
-Changed pop-up text entry box to white with orange border rather than the ugly tan color.

Updates 4/8/10:
-Updated Handcent version to 2.9.35
-Changed Handcent bubbles to chompSMS bubbles. (Both are default silver bubbles now, but in settings you can change the color back to green or whatever colors you like for the bubbles). Thanks to n1ghtwish for helping me figure this out!
-Recolored the top bar of iPhone theme to go better with new bubbles. The top bar is now more white rather than a blueish tint.

-Changed unknown contact icon to an android robot, similar to the Nexus One.
-Changed Handcent icon to the stock android icon (little green smiley face).
-Recolored the text entry box to a white rectangle and added an orange border around to look similar to stock android phones.


Download: HandcentCustom.apk

IMO, it looks better if you go into Handcent, options, bubble settings, and scroll all the way to the bottom and uncheck start lines of editor box so that it will only be 1 line rather than 2 to start out with. (That's also how it is in the screenshot).

By the way, you must uninstall Handcent and any font packs before installing this modded version. Props to sneaky_zekey over at for helping me figure all this out.

HTC Droid Eris :: Why To Use Handcent And Not ChompSMS?

May 25, 2010

I used to be a Handcent user and recently switched to ChompSMS. I couldn't be happier with my decision.

It's much faster, much prettier, and has all the features I need or want.

I just don't understand why Handcent seems to be the more popular SMS app.
