Default No Handcent SMS???

Handcent SMS doesn't show up in the market with my Slider for some reason. Anyone else have this problem? Any solutions?

Go in via web interface, sign out of your google account. Find Handcent and try and download it. It will ask you to sign in. Once signed in it will either download or tell you it is in compatible with your device.

I used Handcent for a week, had nothing but problems with it. As soon as the popup came on the screen, things would lag dangerously.

I would recommend anything between SMS Popup and GO SMS. Just not this.

I've never had an issue with Handcent. It appeared by itself on the market - no issues.

Same here. Not to be a smart guy, but did you spell it correctly? Otherwise, if you spell it "Handcent" it's right there, ready to download to your Slider.

Yes I did spell it correctly - it didn't show before. All of the font packs and different languages showed, but not the program itself. Strange, but all is well now

Good to hear. See my post in this area about program issues. Maybe devs are just now trying to write code for this phone.. donno.

Handcent was not showing up in the market for almost two weeks. It was a well known problem documented by even the developers.

It finally came back to the market last week sometime.

Great to hear. Hopefully this gives a bit of hope with my Jet Car Stunts issue.
