    Everytime I try to recieve a picture message it has a download button. After I hit download, the name of the person who sent it changes to "Anonymous" and the picture doesnt show up. Anyone else with this problem??

    Yeah, same here pretty much. It looks like it is something wrong with the latest update to Handcent. Send them a message about it, so we can get it fixed faster.

    I've had issues with mms messages almost since day 1 of Handcent but I've just dealt with it. I've had a few of the issues mentioned in this thread, too..I don't want to abandon Handcent :(

    just a text message with a picture enclosed? i'm assuming that's what you guys are talking about. I receive them regularly with Handcent with no problem.

    WOW! based on what everyone is saying about the troubles with MMS and handscent, I almost deleted it, until I thought about sending myself a picture, and I have to report I have zero problems sending and receiving MMS.

    again, i've had zero problem receiving and sending MMS. both still pictures and slide shows.

    Pennstate... i know it sounds redundant but did you try the 'long press' on the picture? Also... it might not be ideal but there's an app called "Save MMS" that might be a work around for you.

    I just got Handcent an hour ago because I've seen it around and thought it would make a good replacement for the default messaging.

    Anyway I was also unable to get an MMS from someone (who is in my contacts) with Handcent. It confused it at first because I hadn't read this thread but I also went into the default messaging app and got the picture then went back to Handcent and saw it. Even though I don't get many I think this could be a problem for me as well.

    I do have the latest Market Place version as well (2.9.21). Guess it's not really fixed! I don't really want to have to do work-arounds in order to get the app to work.

    Every Day

    I use this app every day. It's my default SMS and MMS app. I never haven't gotten a picture. I see them as they come in. Sometimes it's off a second while it renders or downloads the pic but it always works. For those that are having difficulty are you running something like home++ or another app that may be interfering with it in some way?

    I've got Home++ running as well as Handcent and I'm still able to receive and send MMS with no issues.

    Martin, a long press brings up view slideshow, message details and some other things that dont relate to viewing the message. When i hit view slideshow it plays like it should be showing something but the screen is black. I do not have Home++ or anything of that sort running but ill try uninstalling it and giving it another try. Thanks for the help everyone.

    So now is the part where I put my foot in my mouth... As soon as I posted that reply my phone beeped and I knew I had a sms or mms. I walked over and looked and the notification bar showed the contact name properly this time and the image name. When I opened up the message the picture was there!

    It could be some weird thing where if you are in a thread already it might have trouble showing the picture? I'm not sure.

    Ok new update. I uninstalled it and re-installed it. At first the widget wasnt there and when it did show up it said problem downloading the widget. I fixed the widget problem and went into handcent. All of my pictures were there so my guess is that I might have had a glitch when first intalling it??? Everyone else with the problem try deleting it and putting it back on your phone.
