    Running latest version of BB, use handcent for txts, ran script 2 remove stock mms app, regular txts send & receive fine but I can't send or receive pic msgs. If I attach a pic 2 a Txt it will show it trying to send msg but the busy spinning wheel icon stays next to the thread & never sends. Hav tried installing & installing both the stock & handcent app with same result. Any ideas would be helpful, thanks

    You need the stock mms to send and receive pic messages, handcent works WITH sthe stock mms app. I never understood why devs make it an option to remove.

    So run the re-install stock mms script &just don't use it? I assume I will un-check the "auto retrieve" option in stock app. Oddly enough on previous BB versions I removed stock mms & didn't have a prob using handcent mms 2 send pics. Thanx 4 the reply. Any other ideas?

    Just push mms app to system/app,set permission rw-r-r, reboot

    I've never removed it, so I don't know

    I tried removing the stock MMS way back on one of the BB versions for 2.0.1 (before it was even a script option -- I removed it using Root Explorer) and wasn't able to receive pics. It was never a problem to send, but removing the stock messaging app eliminated the ability to receive. I've been telling folks ever since not to remove the stock MMS app. I also asked MrBlippy (the dev of the BB Toolkit) to add the warning in script helper for mms that "Using 'mms -rm' (hence removing MMS.apk) will result in the loss of the capability to receive MMS messages, even in third-party applications."

    it shocks me that people still do this...and if you're using bugless beast .4 it is literally written as a warning in the script you have to run to remove it.

    isn't it even on the handcent market page?
