    I just installed Handcent on my Droid and am having two problems. I checked the settings and can't figure out why these things aren't working properly.

    1. The pictures from my contact list do not show up next to the texts. Every one of my contacts has a silhouette and question mark in place of the picture - which shows up fine in the default messaging app.

    2. When a new text comes in, the new text notification pops up on the taskbar. I do not receive a handcent notification icon, and if I open the text with Handcent, the default message notification does not disappear.

    Any ideas?

    I uninstalled mine. It was a bigger pain than good.

    1. Handcent doesn't recognize contact pictures pulled from Facebook for some reason, only pics that you add yourself.

    2. You need to go into the notifications settings in the default messaging app and turn them off, then go into notifications in handcent and turn them on.
