    Has anyone checked to see if today's updated fixed the issue?

    It said in the update notes on the website it fixes an issue with delivery fail...

    Looking to see that it works again before I redownload...

    I just downloaded it and have been running it for about 40 minutes. Seems to be working correctly!

    The ads are only on the settings page. Not really that big of a deal in my opinion.

    ADS ON A SETTINGS PAGE!! Why would I want that on one of the best free programs out threr? LOL

    But really, I have not up dated in some time and I have ads on the setting page, So that is still the same? I would hate to see an ad as I text a friend

    {Send Text}

    (POP UP)

    LOL How funny would that be....

    It works fine on my gf's 2.1 Eris on Cricket. Of course, she hates how slow it is, and went back to the stock Messages app.

    I don't know what everyone's troubles have been. I'd use it, without worry.

    Been running HandcentSMS on 2.1 for about 16 hours now and it works perfectly.

    The only thing I don't like about Handcent is the freakin text entry box is always that ugly tan color and as far as I know, you can't customize that.

    For what it's worth....I downloaded Handcent again a few hours ago and have sent and received plenty of texts without any issue.

    Looks like it's good to go with 2.1 now.

    Same here, I downloaded it last night and have had only one "failure to send" issue, which probably had to do with the fact I was in a bad area. So far, so good.

    I can also confirm the message failure error is gone... upgraded a few hours ago and sent quite a few texts since then!

    Right on... I have gotten somewhat used to chomp but will be jumping back to handcent now because chomp does not stay popped up in front of the lock screen for me to reply. Have to unlock to reply. Miss not having to unlock. The ads on the settings is the furthest thing from a problem for me. This is one of the, if not the, best damn txt apps out there and its FREE guys...come on! Thanks for the fix handcent! :)

    Same here, Handcent works fine now in 2.1. ChompSMS was okay as a substitute, but I still like the popup way better in Handcent.

    Get over yourself with the ads people. You expect these devs to keep working for free with no payback at all? I don't mind the ads if they're unobtrusive and it means the app will continue to get better.

    Quick question, is anyone else not able to find ChompSMS in the marketplace after doing the 2.1 upgrade?

    Edit: Never mind what I'm about to write. It's actually a bug with Swype I think.

    I just found a bizarre bug with Handcent: When I try to program the word "haha", Handcent locks up when I get to the second "h". Weird! Anyone else? I experimented with programming other words that begin with "ha", even words that don't exist and it works fine.

    What's wrong with the word haha Handcent developers!?

    After the update yesterday, and an early upgrade to 2.1, Handcent made my phone on permawake so it wouldnt sleep. I still made it 12 hours with the phone awake 100% of the time, maybe 2.1 helps the battery life? I had to uninstall and switch to chomp, which is too bad because I really enjoyed Handcent.
