    I recently updated to Chevy's SS v5.6. Since I wiped my phone for the install, I had to get all my apps back from the market. Chevy's ROM came with the new market (new to me anyway). I could not find Handcent at all. I found a few language packs, but not the app itself. I downgraded to the previous market, found Handcent, and hit DOWNLOAD. I got the message "Download of Handcent SMS declined.

    "The download of 'Handcent SMS' was declined because it was removed from the Android Market."

    I really don't think I can live with stock MMS. Anyone know why Handcent was removed?

    Thanks for any info.

    No, but your not the only to experience this - my advice would be to contact the developer :)

    Download the APK from the Handcent website. You have to do it from your phone.

    Use go SMS pro until they bring it back its just as good. Better in my opinion actually. But ya stock SMS blows.

    Go SMS Pro is actually prettyy sweet..ill always miss Handcent, but I think that was the straw that broke the camels back. Go SMS Pro has more feature too.
