    For some reason I am getting alerts for text messages and then when I try to read the message it is not there. Its like I never received it. I am using Handcent to manage my sms messages. I don't have it set to display a pop-up, which now I am thinking I should.

    Anyone else have this issue?

    it's not when you get a voicemail, is it? Mine will display a notification saying I've got a text message from "android" whenever I get a voicemail, but it doesn't show up in the message list

    No these are normal text messages. I get the notification in the pull down window but when I click on it it doesnt show up in Handcent.

    Here is some information I found on the issue I have been having.

    handcent.com • View topic - new messages disappear

    It doesn't appear to be an issue that is caused by Handcent, but some problem with HTC and Android. I might go back to the original messaging program or give chompsms a try to make sure.

    if you want to fix this, here's an excerpt from a post that shows how:

    Actually, it looks like the most recent update of Handcent fixed the issue, since I just tried it and I didn't get a message saying I had a voicemail (other than the notification from voicemail).

    Did you root your phone and remove the stock messaging app? This happened to me when I did that.
