    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?

    Maybe try reinstalling Handcent.

    if you still have problems, try out chompSMS.

    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.

    LOL. no. I have no idea why I had it. I think when I first got my phone and D/L'd a bunch of apps and it was one of them. My DInc is actually running way better now what I dont have it installed any more!!!!!! Sorry, im new to this Droid thing, what can i say?

    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.
