    Re: Background

    I have been using handscent exclusively and up until recently it worked just fine. What I am wondering about is if this could have something to do with my device previously being rooted.

    I rooted on 2.0,
    unrooted
    Installed the 2.1 rom from Google (no vzw update)

    other than that everything else is normal . . . at least i think

    Could be but I doubt it. When i decided to start all over i went back to 2.0.1 then did the OTA and then rooted 2.1. For me this problem has been on going fom the beginning no matter what Rom I use. Like I said before don't know if it's because of root, haven't been unrooted long enough to find out.

    One thing that I noticed I forgot to mention in this thread. My problem seems to be directly related to google voice usage. In fact my coworker who has a completely different android phone seems to be having the same problem. If I turn off voice mail forwarding I am able to receive pictures.

    As far as I know I am able to send pics, but not counting on that either at this moment.

    Do you have details on how you rolled back and then rooted?

    So it appears that with voice mail forwarding to google voice enabled I can send messages to Verizon customers, but I cannot receive them or send to anyone outside of Verizon . . . if I find other GV + Verizon users that have this same problem I'm going to start to think that this is a ploy to get us to pay for their visual voicemail service.

    If you go to settings on google voice there is a link to set up forwarding. For Verizon you dial *71[GOOGLE VOICE NUMBER], to turn off forwarding you dial *73

    So I talked to Verizon they did all they could, looked into the switch, even disconnected my service and reconnected, still only receiving mms randomly.

    So it looks like I will be getting a replacement phone. Because I bought it on Ebay brand new I had to look into my Paypal account and find a receipt saying it was brand new, never opened, and fax the info along. I hope what I faxed is sufficient.

    So if/when I get my "new" phone I'll have to unroot and send the old one back.

    Hopefully this droid dosen't have any issues.
