    Upgrade to 5.0.2 and locked GO SMS. I am having an issue where I can view my outgoing messages but any incoming messages are not displayed. Using iphone theme.

    with PEv5 i haven't had anything but bad news with GOsms...some messages don't show up sometimes they do, sometimes i can't send any, its just been a mess with that. For me it was either keep PEv5 or go to 4.2..chose 4.2 for stability.

    thats my $.02

    I haven't had any problems using Handcent SMS on PEv5.0.2.

    I have seen GoSMS come up in quite a few places as being a problem app. It may be due to it not being fully compatible with GB yet. Perhaps it wouldnt hurt to try handcent as droidlady suggested, I was using it and it worked fine. I now use an app called SMS Popup because I realized that the main reason I used to use Handcent was the popup alone. It is not quite as customizeable but I have been using it without any issues at all.

    I've been having a few random issues with GOSMS as well. Sometimes, when someone texts me, I can read the message partially on the notification bar. When I drag it down and select the message, it disappears like it never came through. Even when I go into the stock messaging app. And I am still on version 5. However, this happened on my wife's phone also which is still running 4.2.

    EDIT: And sometimes I get 2 messages back to back.

    I've had a similar experience - see text come in notification, can read it in the go sms popup - but when I go to the app there is no text there.

    Solution is to make sure you have the popup enabled and always read them never close it and think you can read it later in the app - or try a different SMS app.

    I suspect it is an issue with go sms but it is hard to say for sure - I'm trying out handcent now to see if I have similar issues or not.

    (This is all with sms app in memory btw)


    edit**

    Installed handcent sms and the old texts that didn't show up in go sms are visible there. Looks like I will be back to using handcent for a bit :p

    I got an update for GOSMS today. Hopefully it gets rid of the problems.
