    Hi

    I recently purchased my new Desire and although I love it, i've noticed two annoying faults!

    1. When i send text messages to some contacts, the phone decides to send them not as an sms but as an email or sometime even an mms!

    2. My voicemail notifications are being received under one of my Facebook contacts instead of just plain Vodafone! Very weird as my contacts list isnt set to display Facebook contacts even though its an option!

    Is anyone else having the same problem and been able to fix this? Im sure its just the settings that need to be changed but ive had a play and just cant seem to stop it happening!

    for #1, can you please write down the process you use to send an sms. I can't believe its sending an email instead of an sms so it might be a user error :p

    Are you using Handcent?
    I seem to recall there was an option in the settings that automatically converts longer messages into MMS. It can be turned off.
