    The reason i'm using Handcent over ChompSMS is the MMS ability, amongst a few other things. Everytime someone sends me something, i click "download" it goes gray..and then nothing happens. Am i missing a step hre?

    I'm on 2.9.21...

    No option to update, it just automatically asks me normally.

    I have the same problem, I tried chomp instead but could not figure how to send pix and vid messages. If handcent wont download it then I will open them in the standard mess app.

    Its funny tho. Once you open it in the stock app, it will be dowloaded next time you go to the message in handcent

    I have found all the correct settings for Android to send and receive MMS.

    On the Android settings itself:
    Note: It doesn't matter if Wifi is on or off...the next steps will work,

    On the Stock Messaging App:
    1. Select Delete old messages
    2. Unselect everything elses

    On the Handcent App:
    1. Go to settings, then Application Settings - Default Messaging App-Select Disable
    2. In the Send Message settings - Select Auto Convert to MMS and Auto Resize and Auto Convert
    3. Go to Receive Message settings - Uncheck auto receive, roaming auto retrieve and most important, UNCHECK Advance Download, check Auto Download,

    It took me some trials and error but these enabled me to be able to send and receive MMS messages.

    Thanks for the tip. I'll give it a shot. Been having some Handcent issues lately with MMS, and notifications too.
