    The I opened up the widget and its the exact same thing as the shortcut, just an icon.


    I have seen screens where there are text conversations with the cell phone background/icons in behind the convo. I there a way to have the convos be its own screen on the droid?

    How is this screen achieved with this app:

    It is a widget, and not just an icon, in that it displays the number of new messages on the icon. There is a pop-up feature built into Handcent that will display an onscreen pop-up when a new message is received. This may be what you are looking for. I have never used it, but you can activate it thru the Handcent settings.

    Aluminum21, the picture in the first post is found by using a conversation style of anything other then "Android" and by turning on your bubble settings. As for your second post, I've forgotten how to do that but I was able to do it with the original messaging app as well I believe.

    The Handcent widget will display how many unread messages you have in a little green circle over the icon. The Handcent icon, although it looks exactly the same will not display how many unread messages you have.

    Pure Messenger Widget might be what you're looking for Aluminum.

    Missed call might be able to help as well. I just know that I was able to do it with either messaging app and after I uninstalled missed call (handcent lets you customize your notification and sms and mms was the only reason I had missed call) I couldn't make conversation widgets anymore.

    As far as I know it let's you select multiple messages at a time.

    Edit: missed call does nothing with what you are trying to do.

    I wanna know how to do this too. One of my friends asked me how to do it because he saw it on someone else's droid. I told him to try the pop up window in handcent and he said that wasn't it and i never knew what he was talking about until now. How do we do this?

    First question
    A: Open the default messaging app, press the menu button, press settings, scroll down and uncheck notifications.

    Second Question
    A: I believe it is just for GDE.

    To achieve this screen:
    From your handcent screen hit menu>settings>conversation style> check IPhone
    return to regular screen and hit menu>settings>bubble settings>use picture then select your picture you want. This should do it. You can go back into bubble setting and select your font colors and your bubble colors as well.

    i've tried that, but it looks like from the pix above, they made the pix faded. i can do that by selecting a pix, but i think the pix above has a pix and faded. no?

    A similar look can be achieved through handcent.

    This would be choosing adroid in converstation style. You would have to go into bubble settings after this and select transparency to zero on both the sent and received background colors. Then go in to bubble setting and select a picture you want as your background.

    Let me know if you need more information.

    BTW, batch mode is for selecting multiple texts for deletion or moving. Batch mode lets you put a check mark next to the text messages. Batch is nice for selecting/deleting some text messages in a converstation and keeping others.

    That was probably achieved through picsay app in modifying the picture before selecting it in handcent.

    Handcent moves threads with new texts to the top of the thread list and bolds the name or number of the sender.
