    When did you download it.
    I had issues to but my issues were regarding text messages not being sent right away.
    They sent an update and it was all fixed.

    Try uninstalling it and re-installing it. Maybe that will help.

    Did as you suggested and seems to have fixed itself. It was doing it when i would try to delete a thread that was over 2000 threads long. i dont think it can handle that apparently. Also do you know if there is a way to make it so that im not also getting messages in my original box? cause then i have to go in there and delete as well.

    Handcent is pretty heavy on the Eris, I would really recomend getting rid of it and just using the stock messaging app.
    not a pretty or customizable, but it gets the job done and doesnt weigh heavy on the phone.

    I wanted it becasue of the mass msg ability. Stock doesnt do what i want. unless there is a hack

    I don't know if it's only a handcent problem or message problem with phone in general but I have experienced and seen other people talk about the problem deleting threads with large amount of texts. usually if I try to delete one with any more than 100 handcent freezes and I have to kill it and restart. Maybe you just have to be super patient and wait for it to erase and respond? I don't have that kind of patience.

    I have experienced the same problem of trying to delete large threads, so at the end of the day I delete everything to avoid the trouble in the future.
