Strange behavior of default messaging app...

    I am having some problems with the default messaging app. Everything was fine until I downloaded Handcent. After playing around with Handcent, I decided to remove it. After I did, when I tried to send a picture with the default client, it would appear to send properly, but the person I was sending too would get a notification that the attached media was 'too large' or something similar, and not be able to view the picture...

    Finally, I reinstalled Handcent and could send pictures from it just fine. I noticed that Handcent asks to resize pictures when sending where the default app does not. I could not find any settings for 'resize' in the default app.

    I figured I just had a bug with the default client, and continued to use Handcent with no problems. I would periodically check the default client, with the same results...

    Finally, after several days of using nothing BUT Handcent, I decided to give the default app another try, and now I find that it is working again with no problems, and in fact, the pictures I send with it that are apparently NOT resized look better on the phones I send them to than the ones I send with Handcent....

    Has anyone else had a problem like this, or know what could be going on?

    I've never heard of any problems like this. Although from my experience and from listening to others i found 2.0 is full of odd bugs like this. 12/11 is the update so hopefully all these silly glitches will be cleaned up.

    On my previous flip phone i was never able to send my 1024x768 resolution photos to about 50% of people who had older phones than I did due to size. I believe handcent compresses the photo, or something calls droid to compress it before sending. Maybe theres an option to check that says 'shrink/compress photos before sending' or soemthing? I highly doubt handcent is related to that issue.

    Me on the other hand, about 50% of the time using default or handcent, I have to force close because the damn virtual keyboard crashes.

    The handcent appears to be really good...I dont like the default messaging on the droid. Surprisingly you could do much with...is there any way to remove it?
