    Thanks for getting back so quickly. I receive text messages but cannot send them. It has worked a couple of times. Should i contact Verizon or is this an Android issue? This site is great, I appreciate your help.

    Well first, I assume your using the stock texting app. If so, let me suggest you download handcent from the market and try that. If you still are having a problem, let us know.

    Handcent isn't on the market right now because of some kind of snafu with Google. You can still get it from handcent's website.

    This post is Incredible 2!

    I don't know what the issue is with Google and handcent but I went to the handcent site on my computer and my antivirus threw a flag claiming a Trojan was stopped. Thought maybe handcent got hacked.
