    I received my 2.1 OTA DL last night and all has worked well, the only problem I have found thus far is saving pictures from Handcent SMS to my SD card. It won't let me copy them over for some reason. Anyone know why that is?

    Yeah I had that problem too, whenever I get a picture I want to save I just go into the stock messaging program and save it from there. Probably the easiest way to work around it

    I had that problem before I flashed v3 and I still have that problem with Handcent. Someone recommended an app called "save mms". I have been using it since. No problems... works like a charm. Good luck in whatever you decide to do.

    Try going into Handcent settings. Go to Send SMS Settings, then go to Maximum MMS Size and check the 1M setting.

    I know this helped when "sending" pictures and attachments, but not sure if it will help on receiving.

    I changed it, but it still says downloading. I think your right, Its a setting for sending, not receiving.

    can you view it through your stock message app?

    Try going into settings in handcent. Scroll down until you reach the sms receiving section. There, you will see the mms receiving section. Go in there and try selecting auto-retrieval. Only a suggestion...might help. Good luck.

    No, I could not.

    I called Verizon Tech Support as a last ditch effort. I have found that this site tends to be more helpful then Verizon ... but to my surprise, they said this is happening with a lot of the devices and were able to help.

    For anyone else having the same or similar issues ...

    1. Soft Reset (Pull battery with the devise on)
    2. Dial *22899 and press send. It may take a fw moments, but it will eventually tell you a bunch of tests were successful
    3. Dial #832 and press send. It will tell you it was successful

    BAM ... MMS works.

    Thanks to everyone who responded.

    I've had this issue since day 1 with my Eris (have had since October). I just tell my friends to e-mail pictures now, since it seems like I have to receive two messages in a row in order to be able to download one. I would love to get this fixed.

    With the soft reset, what gets reset on your phone? Does it return it to factory settings or just fix this issue? It would be great if the issue would be fixed without losing everything I have so far.

    Also, I just got the 2.1 update, and have been having issues with the icons showing up next to the person's name in Handcent (and occasionally in People). Only a few people show up--even fewer today then when I updated on Monday. Anyone else have this issue?
