    I have read about customizing signatures for different contacts...I am able to figure out how to add a custom signature...but is there a way to add a different one for different contacts? Thanks.

    When you're in the chat window of an individual contact, just tap the icon at the top-right of that window. You will have three options ... to customize notification, bubble, and signature settings just for that contact. Pretty cool stuff. I love Handcent!

    Does anyone have the .apk file for Handcent 2.9.30?! I thought I had it backed up but I had 2.9.29. I updated Handcent today to 2.9.31 and it is running horribly! Plus this one has adds. If anyone has the .apk file for 2.9.30 please PM me! Thanks!

    I'm not sure if this is your problem, but I was having issues where an incoming text would come and show up in the pop-up screen. I would close the pop-up screen, but later on, when i went to Handcent to check the message, that text was gone. It was also gone in the default messenger app. I think this occurred about 3-4 times.

    I read in another forum that someone contacted the dev, and the dev recommended doing the following:

    Settings->Retrieve Message Setting->Self-Check, check the box that says Self-Check at the bottom.

    I don't know if that fixes it, but I haven't had any issues in the last few days.

    I just got a Droid ERIS yesterday and downloaded Handcent...ads are only in the settings but it makes it SO slow. How I fixed it was....I went into Spare Parts and changed all animation speeds to FAST. Now it goes smooth :)

    I have been using the Messaging program that came with my Rogers Magic and just installed Handcent SMS. One thing I can't figure out is how I access all the mobile numbers of contacts I have in the stock messaging program? I only have 5 contacts in my list in Handcent. I have heard that it might tie in to how you have the contacts set in GMail and whether they are set as mobile but some of the contacts I usually message aren't even in my GMail, they were just cell numbers of friends that I had contacted.
