    Based on your above description, I think you're referring to the contacts issue. When trying to enter a contact's name in an MMS/text, the intended contacts name won't pull up? This update is supposed make the droid recognize 10 digit #s so we wouldn't have that issue. I really hope its fixed, or I'm taking it back for a 3rd time

    sent MMS perfectly before and after the OS update...

    when creating a message ... after choosing the contact .. hit the menu key to attach a picture,
    capture piciture,
    video,
    capture video,
    or amr (voiceNOTE)
    or slide show (more than one picture) does truncate pics .. but needs major improvement .. so as to maximize msg space limit and picture size. you're screwed if trying to send a slide show with three pics using the 5mp setting ..(won't let you ... unless you send each pic individually.)

    I just do standard attaching file. A lot of people had problem with MMS before of not being able to send. Is there a way to fix this? Is it one of the biggest issue for Droid :S

    What is this an iPhone? MMS has worked from Day one as far as I know and never had an issue (well, other than people wanting to be able to browse for contacts, but that is a design issue and not a bug). Chomp SMS doesn't handle MMS, but that is an issue with that particular app (and part of the reason I use Handcent instead).

    Maybe the OP is referring to MMS over Google Voice.

    Mine has never work since I bought it and I am sure others have as well. Some Droid works since they are out from the box some don't. It is kinda weird. Anyway, I would like to know if when you attached the file and send does the clock disappear? Mine stay there forever like it is frozen and never sent.

    I am using Handcent, so I never see a "clock" I get the usual wait "pulse" for about 3 seconds on a typical 5 MP picture and that is it

    I noticed Handcent wouldn't download the MMS on its own or even if I hit the "download" button in the msg. I would have to open the standard messaging app, which would then display the MMS automatically, and then go back into Handcent to also see it there.

    They just updated it last night and I haven't had a chance to see if it corrected that. It was also doing it with emails that people fwd to my phone #.

    OK I got the update today and was still not able to send picture messages. I called Verizon customer service and the tech had me do a "Factory data reset" and this cured my problem. Now I have only had my phone for a bit less than a week so I had not amassed many apps,files,etc. You will need to backup your data if you want it saved. I did not do this and lost the few free apps I had. All my contacts remained intact. Be sure to figure out how to properly backup your phone before doing this you WILL lose everything but it cured my picture messaging issue.


    P.S. he told me if it did not work he was authorizing a replacement for me that it was an issue with the phone itself.
