    Ok, so I've been searching the forums and trying everything I possibly can to figure this out. But, I can't find anything that helps.

    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.

    Another bit of info, I have already tried rebooting and uninstalling and reinstalling.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    If you have Antivirus app on your phone get rid of it. Handcent and Antivirus DO NOT work well together. once I got rid of AV Handcent is running great, faster even, and even though I can't confirm, my battery seems to have longer life now too.

    I do have Lookout installed, maybe I'll get rid of that and see if that makes any difference. Thanks.
