    So, I searched through the forums to see if anyone had similar issues and found a few relating to this. I was having some issues receiving MMS through Handcent. They would come in fine with the stock Messaging app, but not show in Handcent. I uninstalled Handcent and re-installed and one of my MMS that hadn't come in properly looks like it worked this time, but has anyone else ever noticed this?

    I am having the same problem as well. It also will not auto-download them. I have to manually hit download and then when its done it just disappears.

    Yeah same thing here since the update last night. It seems they go around and round. They put out an update and the MMS won't work right, or it won't show what you are typing in when you turn phone to landscape mode. The put out an update and things work better. Then they put out a new update and the text not showing up or MMS don't work right again! I love the program if they could keep everything they fix working when they update.

    I have a problem with MMS in both Handcent and the default app. They come in as 30k messages and one downloaded display as a picture instead of a video.

    Removing Handcent, rebooting, and it work with the default messenger. I re-installed Handcent and it works intermitantly works. The default messenger works all of the time. I guess Handcent is ready for prime time. I really liked it, but give the problems I will uninstall it and see if I can find another app to replace it.

    I had one instance of this. Picture was sent to me (I use Handcent) and I had to manually select download, where as it used to automatically display the image. Well I clicked download and.... nothing.

    Had the same person resend me that image, hit download, and it worked. I'm not sure if the person who sent it accidentally canceled the file transfer or what. Haven't seen this issue since.

    I had the same issue a few days ago, the photos auto-downloaded but they were blank. I think there was an update in the last few days, when I went back and looked today, the photos were showing just fine. Weird, but I think they fixed it.

    Ran into this issue again :( Had to click 'download' manually in Handcent to receive an MMS. It never displayed. So I went into the stock messaging and it displayed the picture fine.
    Strike 1 for Handcent...
