    When trying to send picture mail on handcent, once i click to send, it just keeps the screen with the little spinning "loading icon" and never actually sends the image. Anyone have any tips to make it work?

    What do you have your MMS message size set to? Maybe the image is too big, and Handcent is not resizing it like it should?? Just a thought...

    same here, probably just a bug in handcent, I'm gonna try sending pics through the stock messaging app instead now that I see I'm not the only one with problems.

    I just started having this problem last night.

    I'm also using Handcent on Ic3rom (2.1).

    I thought it always did this? Also, i sent a picture message about 5 minutes ago and didn't have any problems, although now that i've thought about it i've never had any problems with it. I also don't use wifi for my phone even though i have a wifi network in my house. Go figure,

    Perhaps I didn't explain it right. The first page where it lists all the different conversations, here it always showed the contact's pictures. On the page with actual conversation, it now shows that contact's picture.

    Yea... It's always done that on mine, but i've only had my phone for 2-3 weeks and i've had handcent ever since i got it so maybe when i got it i got the updated version to begin with? It's an option in the conversation settings menu to display the pictures...
