    Default Handcent SMS

    Having issues with texts not going out or coming in while using hand cent, I need a more reliable SMS app.
    I miss my friend Matt McQuinn he touched so many lives, and in the end gave his life to protect someone that he loved. I am proud to have known him, and of the choices he made when it mattered. You were a true hero.

    +1 for GOsms. Awesome SMS replacement service with even cooler themes. For me, it works reliably and efficiently.

    I would be asking yourself why are you having the problem to begin with. Are you rooted? Are you running a custom ROM? If so which 1? If not maybe it is time for an FDR

    Handcent did an update and messed things up for everyone. That was the app I was using at the time. I've been using go sms...haven't had a problem since.

    I use handcent after the updates and I don't have any issues with it working. Could be network, Verizon has had issues with text messages going thru on android, iPhone or regular phone.

    Android is a tune up sports car with custom interior, sound system, and IOS is a stock model benz

    I use Android, because unlike IOS, i keep my apps in app drawers, and not infinitely cluttered homescreens

    Was using Handcent for years.
    My phone lately slowly went into a crawl.
    Started removing apps to see what the app was that was causing it and arrived at the Handcent one. I miss it.
    Tried GO sms a few years back before Handcent. May try it again.

    I'm running Handcent on a rooted DROID RAZR MAXX flashed with Flick 5. I haven't had any problems with it. I used GO SMS (and Launcher) for a long time, but after noting app sizes I dumped all Go apps. GO apps work fine as well and I know there is a lot of space for apps on these phones, but I like to trim fat where I can. Handcent does everything I used in GO SMS at less than half the storage footprint (3.07M vs 6.32M). I found I had to load the stock messaging app to download MMS from my iPhone using pals when using GO, but Handcent has downloaded everything as it should.

    Both are great choices IMO and most apps burp on occasion. I find clearing cache, davlik, and a reboot fix most issues. Uninstall and reinstalling the app from the Play store fixes most other problems.
