    OP: why don't you send a message to the developer? He may not have access to a Droid X.

    after a couple months handcent slows the phone down. Had it on my droid and it happened to that one, i'm gonna stay away from the app for a little bit.

    You might try uninstalling and then re-installing it to avoid the slow down issues.

    Why would it slow things down? Do you save a ton of texts or something? I don't see why it would slow down otherwise. Care to elaborate?

    One thing is that I have found is that Droid X has lots of built-in functionality that other prior devices didn't have. I found handcsnt really didn't do anything to improve SMS functionality built-in.

    I will say that both had issues with lag pulling in pictures from contacts. I have 1000 contacts so I realize this is my problem more than a devce problem.

    I've used handcent on my MyTouch (last year), Nexus one and now my Droid X.
    I haven't noticed any slowing caused by it.

    Thanks. I've never used it but was looking forward to using it after the update. That was the first I've heard about it slowing the phone down too.

    I can think of one huge one.. at least for me.

    Canned messages/templates

    i.e.

    Call me.
    I'll be there in _____
    I'm running late.
    Be right there.
    On may way.
    etc etc... I believe you can add your own custom ones as well.

    It is but it still doesnt fix the LED problem. The problem being LED customization doesnt work.

    When I add my contact picture for myself, it comes out all distorted and blurry no matter what size I use. This is a little irritating.

    Go into handcent then hit menu- settings- send message settings- shortcut key to send. Then you cand change it to use enter if you want.
