    Handcent was awesome. Did past couple updates and now it opens incedibly slow. When it finally opens it force closes. Is anyone else having this problem?

    Love handcent over stock messaging app.
    Maybe someone has an older version of the apk that used to run fine.

    Any insight would be awesome.

    I just noticed there is an update that is supposed to "speed up" Handcent. Installing now.

    look on this forum for "handcent custom" (might be "handcent themed" ) and install that. it cuts out a lot of the BS that you dont need and its pretty zippy.
