    Handscent is driving me CRAZY!

    I have written this before, I like all the features that Handscent has to offer, but I hate having all my text messages from one person all combined into one. I don't know if I making myself clear, so I am going to walk everyone through my frustration.

    I send a text message to Paul in regards to a certain issue. Fantastic, no problems.

    Later in the day I want to send Paul an another text message, but with a different issue. Now, if I didn't delete the first text message with Paul earlier in the day, my second message with something completely different , gets combined into my first message. Why can't it just be isolated messages, and not this on going and best described as, a chat line effect. Is there an option to have it that messages are all individualized?

    i'd stick to email if i were you. i dont' think it would erase on his end even if you could. actually maybe his doesn't show as "chat"

    your issue is not unique to handcent. even the standard sms application on the droid does it this way. it's called threaded messaging and pretty much every new smartphone and every messaging application handles sms messages like this.

    why is having all your messages with one contact grouped in one view a problem? it makes it easy to see all the messages you've exchanged with that person.

    there are sms backup applications that allow you to pull your messages of f the phone and slice and dice them however you want...if that's what you're trying to do.

    BzB, excuse for sounding stupid, but I am completely new to all this, so when for example, I send my friend Barbara text messages through out the day, she is getting that message I sent her, and not 33 messages I have sent her earlier? Gee! I hope not, she will never talk to me again.

    no she is not getting the 33 previous sms's seperately: )

    If her SMS is threaded (like the Droid) it's handled the same. If not she is just getting the most current from you.

    ^ exactly. the person on the receiving end only gets the most current message you sent. the messaging application (in this case handcent) just keeps an ongoing history of messages that were exchanged, but it does not resend all the messages that are shown in the view.

    heh, there should be an option to disable threaded tho, some people just dont like it.. i had my manager ask me to disable it on her bb and couldnt...

    Almost all newer pda/smartphones have this type of messaging. BB's, winmo's w/ 6.1, and now androids. Personally I like the threaded style, most of the folks who dont like it seem to be coming from your standard type phone.

    message threading/history is how most if not all phones work these days. if you don't like it, delete the messages when you're through with them.

    but as other people have pointed out, it's just a history. you're not bringing up an old conversation. you're not resending the conversation. the conversation picks up from your most recent message.

    I cannot imagine NOT having threaded messaging. It is a nightmare to go back and find specific messages when the messages aren't grouped by contact. I had to endure non-threaded texting with my old phone. Nightmare.
