    IS anyone else having issues with Handcent? It is not showing the unread message count on the home screen (and yes the option is checked in settings)

    ok, need to bump this, sorry.

    this is getting annoying to the point that I;m really thinking to going back to the stock messaging app. can someone give me a tip here? what is happening?

    I even uninstalled the the previous version and installed the latest 3.0

    still not showing the unread count. anyone?

    Try downloading "smsunread" . It works with Handcent.

    Just because it has that option doesn't mean that why people use it

    that's not what i was getting at.
    i, personally, don't want it to resemble the iPhone's mssg app.
    one of the reasons i joined Android is because i wanted something fresh and new.

    That's your choosing. The OP asked a question about why an app isn't working right. Not whether or not people like the way it looked. If you don't like it then don't use it.

    Long press on the home screen and add it as a widget instead of long pressing it in the app drawer.

    My counter is working just fine.. zero for no msgs and I had a total of 4 today that were unread (ESPN SMS sports alerts)..

    Maybe removing/reinstalling the widget?

    ok, I'm r.e.t.a.r.d.e.d. Just figured it out. I was adding the "app" to the home screen not the "widget". just added the widget and it works fine. phew

    This worked, installing the widget instead of app!

    Thanks!

    I'm actually having an issue with sms pop-up and its driving me absolutely Insane!!!!!!! When I get a message, I press close and it marks the message as read so the notification in the status bar disappears but the unread count on the icon on the home screen doesn't disappear!!!!!!

    Has anyone had this problem and is there a way to fix it??

    When you have the Notification popup enabled, it will automatically count that message as read (unless you miss a popup for some reason. ie, out of service area, handset turned off, multiple messages at once, etc).

    You can disable the popup by going into your Handcent App, Click the Menu button, Select Settings, Select Notification settings, remove the check from the Enable popup checkbox.

    However, doing so will mean that you will no longer get the automatic popup on inbound messages.
