I am currently using Handcent. Is the the best third party sms app out that can also do mms?
Hi Their ,
It looks like Handcent can handle both SMS & MMS according to their Makret description
I use Handcent, and it does both. Though Im unclear what the OP was asking, which is one of the reasons I didnt respond to this thread earlier.
Likewise , So thought I would Respond now and see if that's what the OP meant
LOL. I was wondering what they the OP was saying as well. I read it twice because i was sure i misread something. But Handcent is very nice IMO. Handles MMS well.
I use handcent, but I have one big complaint.....
Not sure if this makes sense, but say I send a text and know it is going to be a conversation text (meaning back and forth dialogue) I can't just keep the text screen open, because it won't update when the person responds. Instead I have to either back out of it, or go to notifications and click on the "new text message."
If that makes sense, does anyone know a way to have the conversations update?
If you really need and use MMS a lot, Handcent is the best option I think. I personally prefer chompSMS, but I rarely use MMS myself.
Has anyone tried Speak SMS with Handcent on the Hero? It sounds like a great idea for us who are typing challenged.
yup, I've tried it a few times. It's not as effective as I'd like. It has a success rate (for my speaking pattern) of about 75%. It's still a neat feature though. Maybe with practice on your speech pattern, you can get better results. Not sure though.
Thanks. I should get the phone this afternoon. I'll give it a try.
The speech to text works so so for me. Pretty good for short basic stuff, much worse with multi-syllable words. Then, when my wife tried it it worked pretty darn well for her. I don't think our speech is all that different, but this feature does, I guess.
Separate names with a comma.
