    Does anyone else experience SERIOUS lag while recieving SMS? My phone will literally freeze for anywhere from 30 seconds to a minute while it processes an incoming SMS. The problem is terribly worse if I am recieving multiple messages simultaneously.

    I am currently using Handcent SMS(NEW) with the quick reply on.

    I'm not sure what quick reply is, is that the popup window? I use the popup window in handcent and I don't notice anything that severe. Sometimes the phone will pause for half a second if I'm doing something active with it, but that's it.

    *YES* My moment lags, freezes, blank screens, or generally freaks out when i get a sms message!!! I mean, i can be on the home screen and will know. I have SMS MSG Count app (widget?) installed, and Handcent. I've tried uninstalling one then the other, and I have issues no matter which is installed. I get only a 1 second lag if BOTH are unistalled, but if even one or the other or both installed, the phone takes up to a minute to finish "processing" the txt.

    I also have pandahome installed, if that helps explain why. You ain't alone.

    Using Pandahome, default SMS app, no lag.
  6. Did you remember to disable the stock sms application when you install and started to use handcent?

    ^^ How is that done numus? All I know how to do is disable the notifications, not the program itself. I wonder if that would speed up my Handcent experience.
  8. Well basically just go into the settings and disable Auto-Retrieve and disable Notifications

    Ah thanks - already done that. Thought you had meant there was a way to completely shut down the program - since I find it's always running.

    Hmm.. interesting. Perhaps it has to do with another app completely unrelated to SMS messaging? Maybe a ringtone app.. or some other customization? I do not experience any freezing on my moment. I do have about 86 app's installed, but many of them are tools etc. The only ringtone app I use is Zedge. I do use Handcent.

    Wow, well it looks as if I'm not alone but seems as the the majority of us are not having this issue. I have disabled the stock messaging app, did so from the beginning, but have always had this problem. (Have had my moment for about 2 months now)

    I know this is alot to ask, but would anyone that is not having this issue mind giving me a comprehensive list of the apps that they have installed? LOL, if I get no takers I'll just have to go through the tedious process of deleting apps then sending myself a SMS! LMAO!

    Thanks for all the help/replies!
