I have installed Handcent in order to make the default font in text messages larger. It also allows for lots more control of what the messages look like on my Droid. SMS messages to and from cell phone numbers work as they should BUT...
When I reply to a text message sent from someone's email to me (they use the firstname.lastname@example.org address) or when I send a new text message TO an email address from Handsent it sends it as an MMS (multimedia message) even though all it contains is text so it should be a SMS (simple text message of 160 characters or less).
There are 2 problems with this. Verizon charges more for MMS and Verizon attaches their signature at the bottom of MMS. The signature tells the recipient of the text message that it is a picture message from Verizon. This is confusing to the recipient since it is simply a SMS!
I've emailed Handcent about it but all they say is it is Verizon's fault. Talk to Verizon. Of course we all know that is a waste of time.
I wonder if there is a way around this problem I haven't thought of?
