    First off Love my DINC. only prob i've run into so far was with Handcent. Last night, for the second time, I sent a text message and then i got an alert saying Handcent had to force close, so I did but when I went back into the app all my threads were gone :mad: not cool. Anyone else have this problem? Should i just use the stock messaging system?

    There has been updates for Handcent, make sure you use the latest version. I love the app and had no problems with it.

    also try a SMS backup app so you don't lose your convos. I'm using "SMS Backup" - free in market. It saves to your GMail account, and there is an option for auto backup. So far as I know, there haven't been any problems.

    After installing and uninstalling Handcent 3 times, I too decided to try out ChompSMS and I have had much better success. ChompSMS is awesome, however, I wish it would display the number of unread messages on the icon on my homescreen.

    Follow up! I contacted Handcent through Email and they responded quickly. They asked if I was using an Antivirus app, which I was, they said many people have had the same issue. Getting rid of the antivirus solves the problem. Now the question is do I need the Antivirus app????????? i really like Handcent.

    Wow the person just emailed me again saying the Antivirus may have been collecting personal info off my phone! they said they might put a warning up about it on the Handcent Start Up screen!!!!!! wow this could be a huge bug fix. No Antivirus app or Uninstaller app for me. My phone is running way better already.
