    Beating a dead horse... but ???

    I recently came back to Verizon after being with them for years. Actually left my family there when my wife and I went to att for the iphone. LOVED the ipone and think it may well be one of the best inventions in last decade! However att absolutely SUCKS! came back to verizon and got the blackberry. After the iphone, the bb really sucks. Droid came out and I was stoked.
    Here is the problem... I coach several basketball teams and I used text messaging quite a bit. The problem that i have is that the stock messenger doesn't do group texting without manually inputing each number. GROUP TEXTING is huge for me. I've tried:
    Text Easy - doesn't get the job done.
    Handcent - slow and locks up after a day or so (not responding messeage appears)
    Chomp - seemed to work, but doesn't support group from my gmail account and there is no way to create a group on the phone.

    Additionally, when I use Chomp for single text, the contact list is showing everyone 2 and 3 times.

    PLEASE... someone help me. I'm going to have to trade the phone out and go with a simple phone if I can't get this group messaging straight.

    PLEASE HELP.

    How long have you had handcent on your droid? I know there have been a couple of updates in the past week, I had noticed that in one of the updates, handcent stopped working correctly, so i removed it and added it back, and everything was good after that.

    There have been a few issues with contacts and facebook and google. An annoyance to say the least.
    Resistance is futile.

    i have a droid and handcent works fine for me - no crashes or lockups.

    however, i am annoyed that both messaging and handcent comes up when i receive texts even though i have the handcent as the default messenger app.

    Disable notifications on the default messenger app.

    You mean they notify you? or both programs open up?

    I've just downloaded Handcent again. When I choose a contact, it pulls up 3 or 4 of each contact..... 3 mobile, 3 home, 3 work....

    What is going on here. When I pull up the contact list, it only show:

    Call Work
    Call Home
    Call Mobile

    What gives? Why am I pulling multiple duplicate listings when I pull up a Chomp contact?

    Help..... PLEASE. It's driving me crazy!

    Ok the brief reason why this is happening is, at least the reason it happened for me, was because i reset my phone 2-3 times (mostly stupid crap i did) but when i went back into facebook i allowed it to redownload my contacts. While this SHOULD NOT add another entry into my contacts, it did. So I had to go into my google account and click on the contacts, and manually delete the 2-3 extra entries for each person.

    Go in to the default messenger's settings and turn off notifications so you don't realize.

    how bout "group contact creator", there are a bunch of group contact things that integrate right into your phonebook, just search the word "group" in the marketplace

    yes, both notifies me and both opens up. but as LordKastle mentioned, i disabled the messaging notification. all i need is someone to text me to see if this is now resolved.

    thanks!
