    I've never (3 weeks) been able to send or receive MMS messages ever since installing Handcent. I really like the messaging app so I'd rather try to fix it than ditch it.

    Anyone else having issues?

    can you still send messages using the stock messaging?

    i can't think of any setting off-hand that would disable handcent from being able to send messages.....

    Have you tried the uninstall then reinstall method. I find it fixes many problems like yours.

    Sorry should have included it in OP

    I am running Chevyno1 SS 4.9 1ghz ULV kernel. I have deleted the stock messaging app. Does that app handle MMS messages thus causing the problem. I only have Handcent installed.

    I think Handcent still uses the stock messaging app, so uninstalling it caused the problem. I'm sure you could find the apk somewhere if you didnt back it up

    I'm currently on UD 2.4 myself and like it a lot. Never used any chevy roms, so I can't compare the 2 though. I hear that UD 2.5 should be coming out any day now. Enjoy

    How is your battery life and which kernel are you running?

    I am guessing SLV means super low voltage right? I am used to it saying ULV, just want to make sure.

    Thanks!

    I have this same problem, and because handcent is so popular, so many ppl think it's related to handcent.

    I do NOT have handcent, have only ever used the stock msging app.
    Yes, Im rooted,
    Yes, Im using buglessbeast .6.1

    my MMS was working fine until abt 3 days ago. I havent changed anything, havent switched roms or even added removed any apps. i tried a test MMS in&out today and I finally managed to rcv one but still stuck on "sending" for outgoing. ive had my outgoing mms in limbo on "sending" for the past 3 days

    someone's who's figured this out, pls report back.
    one person back from 2009 said they called verizon and vzw wrongfully limited someone's data/msg allowances and they fixed it.
    But Im on a family unlimited data & msging, and the rest of my family is fine.

    will try and report back if I figure this out.

    Try changing your battery manager to performance mode.

    Solved: Problem receiving MMS on Handcent (verizon motorola droid 2)

    I just spent a long time troubleshooting a problem receiving MMS messages after installing Handcent (verizon motorola droid 2). MMS messages weren't coming through either on Handcent, or on the stock text messaging app.

    I found that I needed to enable settings in two different places.

    1 - the auto-retrieve setting in the main android setting

    2 - the auto-retrieve (and roaming auto-retrieve) settings in the Handset app itself. It seems that the Handcent settings override the main android setting (and, affected receiving mms messages in the stock app ???) so these need to be tweaked. For some reason the defaults were off.

    Get to the handcent settings from the main handcent listing view, menu, settings.

    Anyway, this worked for me.

    HTH.

    Didn't read the entire thread but I had the exact same problem with my handcent after deleting the stock messaging app. Once I reinstalled the stock app, the MMS issue was resolved. For me it had nothing to do with settings or the like; merely the presence of the stock messaging app.

    Handcent piggybacks off of the stock mms. Deleting the stock mms will definitely mess up your messaging! If you don't want to receive notifications from stock mms or even use it, then uncheck it in your settings. Put it on auto retrieve,check auto delete,check roaming. Handcent will automatically take over from there. When you send a message a options box will pop up asking you to set either mms stock or handcent as default choose handcent as default,there your done. Send and receive from your handcent shouldn't be anymore problems. Hope it helps.

    I am currently having the same problem. Where do you find the auto-retrieve in the main android setting?

    Killa_beatz,pull up app drawer,scroll to messaging, pull it up then hit menu key,hit settings (uncheck notification this will keep it from notifying you twice,in the statusbar) scroll to auto retrieve check that and also check auto retrieve in roaming, check auto delete as well.

    I'm late to the game, but none of the advice so far has fixed mine

    Hello -

    I realize I'm 7 months late here. But I've probably been experiencing this for at least that long - I've just lived with it and apologized to people who sent stuff I couldn't receive.

    As with others, I have no trouble sending and receiving text. But I cannot send or receive multimedia messages.
    • I called Verizon. They had me test send/receive of a photo in the stock app. It worked.
    • I tried the same thing in Handcent. It didn't work.
    • Verizon checked account settings for me and all my family members. Everything was copacetic. I am the only person out of 3 on the plan who has this problem.
    • Verizon rightly concluded that this was outside their domain.
    • I followed the advice here to enable autoretrieve and roaming autoretrieve both in Handcent and in the stock app. They were both already enabled.
    I saw advice here that suggested checking the battery manager to make sure it is in performance mode. I'm not sure I understand that. I don't have a battery manager per se that I'm aware of. I do use Android Assistant which does a lot of things including allowing me to tweak certain battery drains. But I am pretty sure this problem existed before I got that app. It also reports on my battery. Currently it says my battery voltage is 3871 mV. Not sure if that is good or bad.

    LG Ally (NOT rooted) with Android 2.2.2 and Handcent 3.9.9.9

    So what should I do now? I have considered a Handcent uninstall/reinstall, but will I lose all my stored messages? And would it be likely to help anyway?

    Thanks for your assistance,

    ~N

    Same here. Thought it was fixed on the last handcent update but I guess not.

    I figured it out at least for me - I had wifi on but cell data off. Once I turned it on they sent and received just fine.
