    Hey all.

    Wife got a Mesmerize, and we downloaded Handcent immediately.

    Unfortunately, she seems to be having issues with it. She'll be typing on the keyboard, but the text won't show up. She also get's mis-identified text notifications (it says "Bob", when it's actually a text from "Dave").

    Anyone else having similar issues?

    I used handcent faithfully till I got my mesmerize. I now use the stock app as it seems to work just as well. I have the same problem with the names but only in the notification bar. It will say it's from one person, but when I open the app it will say another. Mine will also sometimes just have the phone number even thoo the person sending the pic is in my contacts. I don't know y it does this. I rooted with Z4Root, and still have the same thing going on maybe 2.2 will fix this. sry I don't have any answers.

    I have been using HandCent for a couple of days to replace the stock sms app, since it was running so laggy on my phone and I have to report that it has been working well for me so far.

    I've had this issue when using the Samsung keyboard input, however not the Android keyboard. :confused:

    I've been using Handcent for several months now, no issues at all. I used to have the misidentified text issue in the status bar, when I was using the stock app and stock samsung keyboard.

    I would suggest reinstalling handcent, and also installing swiftkey keyboard and see if that clears it up.

    I haven't had the first problem with handcent or SMS in general since I began using it. I started using Swiftkey before Handcent.

    You may also want to try enabling pop up notification with handcent. That may help as well.

    Just a note, I did a factory reset a while ago and have not had any problem since.
    The issue may likely be related to some other application we've all had installed at some time or another.

    I started using Go SMS Pro and love it. It seems to work better for me than Handcent.
