    I apologize for posting this but I've been looking for an answer to this question for a while. I posted this in someone elses thread but I figured this deserved it's own post since it's pretty much a deal breaker for me. Hopefully someone has the answer for me. Thanks in advance! :)

    "I've been looking for a reliable messaging app since I got my incredible, but I always stuck with the stock sms. The reason being is one HUGE glitch scared me away from handcent...the glitch where it would randomly send a text message to the wrong person from your contact list and pretty much pick a random contact to send the sms to. I can't really have that happen since I use my phone as my work phone and personal phone. It would be a VERY bad situation if a text message I was sending my girlfriend was randomly sent to someone from work or a customer.

    I've seen people posting about this glitch earlier this year but I've never seen anyone confirm whether it not the glitch has been fixed or still exists? It's not something I want to risk. I guess my reason for posting this is I am very curious to find out if that glitch has been fixed.

    I would LOVE to use handcent or chomp but I would like some confirmation as to whether or not that glitch is no more. Can anyone confirm this? Please? "

    ;)

    This is the first time I've heard of this bug. I've been using it since the 16th of July and never had this issue. After Googling the problem it seems the problem people we having is Handcent randomly resending messages to the same people, not to others. Couldn't find anything else on it or whether it was fixed, sorry.

    I have been using Handcent for several months (10 I think), and have never had such problems. And to tell the truth, I have never heard about it. Handcent is a great software, Developer is very responsive.

    That is odd. Never had that problem with Handcent and I have been using it for almost a year now.
