    Hello, I have a question about handcent sms application.
    Whenever I get sms via standard message program, my trackball lights up.
    However, when I'm using handcent sms notification, it would not light up.
    I have turned the trackball light on in the settings, but it does not work.
    Does anyone else have this problem?
    Thanks.

    yeah I have the same problem also. it used to work... pretty sure one of the updates has caused it not to or maybe since I completely disabled the default sms app.

    I just updated handcent, then i went into settings and changed the vibrate mode to long then changed it again. I then tested notification and the trackball lights up now. But when i get a real text, it doesnt :(

    Yea!
    It works now.
    I hope they have option of tracking ball light staying lit instead of blinking.

    on a magic?!

    another Think i've found is that writing is much slow than in the normal messages program. i'm on the next word with my fingers and on the message is it still in the previous one!
