    I get a poor signal at home (did on my Nokia), so half the time when I send a text, there won't be a signal to send it. I always then go and put my phone in a place where there is a signal and leave it..
    With my Nokias, the phone would send it fairly quickly (usually within 10-15 minutes).

    The message is still sat in Handcent with the whirling round icon next to it. If I copy the message, and resend it, whilst there's a signal, away it goes. I can't find any way to force the send when I want, and I left the resend in a signal area for 1hr 15 mins and it still hadn't sent..

    Someone else has raised it on the handcent forum, has anyone else experienced this here, and have you gone back to the normal app, or Chomp or something else to fix it?

    This is a pain for what seems to be an otherwise great app!

    I have the same problem. Handcent simply doesn't resend. Another problem I noticed is when you choose an SMS to delete, it will delete another SMS. Very frequently I selected the correct SMS but the wrong one was deleted.

    I've downloaded Chomp - this seems to cope with no signal better.

    Yeh. I get that problem with handcent. It doesnt fail to send allowing you to resend - it just gets stuck trying to send.

    Might can it and go back to chompsms.

    I have the same issue with poor reception in the house... I Got so fed up with Handcent... Tested Chomp out and it sent out the messages as soon as the phone picked up a signal...

    Now I'm a happy ghost :D

    I found handsent was doing this more and more and I have a good signal! Sometimes the message showed still sending when it had already sent and then when I would then try to resend people got multiples of them. I've switched to Go
