    Never happened here....and I doubt the developer meant for this to happen.
    Have you contacted him and reported this?

    The handcent update from last week? It didn't happen to me either. The ads,....i don't blame him if he's getting some money for it. He gives us this app for free.

    I haven't done the update, but for future reference, SMS Backup and Restore is a great thing to use. I back up daily.

    ok after hearing a couple of people having success i just updated and I have not lost any convo. And the ads are only in the setting and I already have it customized so I am not concerned about the few times im in the settings and seeing ads.

    it's disappointing to see when users have issues and automatically blame the app/developer. most of the time there's some underlying issue that caused their problems.

    ...and i never go into the settings anyway. if the op didn't mention it i never woulda known. lol

    LOL, OMG! Ads in the Settings Menu!!!! My phone will not ever operate the same again! J/K. I never even look at the settings menu. No complaints from me. He keeps it free, can't complain about free.

    You didn't lose them because of Handcent, you lost them because of the Android OS. All of my texts randomly disappear every few weeks and it's frustrating. Thankfully SMS Backup is there for the rescue.

    Wish Google would find the cause, it's almost like the stupid blackberry memory leak.

    I've updated my Handcent and have had no probs whatsoever. I have even been in the settings menu changing my settings and customizing and still no problems. The adds are very small that the top of the page. You can overlook them easily. Sorry you are having troubles with Handcent. I love it and got rid of Chomp.
