    I have a non rooted DINC. and would like to know if there is a way to view MMs properly on the stock MMs on the phone. Currently everything that comes in I have to view as an annoying 2 second slideshow. To make things worse, if it comes with any audio I have to listen to that seperate. Is there a different way to view these.... like say a dumb phone does, and how they were intendid to be viewed?

    If you look in the settings there should be something like popup notification. Disable that. Oh and mike was just trying to get you help from incredible users. Its sop.

    Edit: settings for the text app that is.

    Thanks, I looked and there is no such option.
    There first time I tried to ask this, I got no replies, and I asked in the incredible tech issues area. I then posted the link to that thread in the general area, again asking the question. Then a mod locked my post. Then I got a PM from a different mod telling me it was a cross post, and to just ask in the general area. Guess what... that's exactly what I have done, and look where we are now...lol.
    Seems there are no set guidelines... Just whatever each mod wants on the fly.

    I understand it can be kind of a headache but keep in mind there are a lot of mods here and its prob not that easy for them to keep in contact about all the threads they had to edit. I can however assure you that all the mods are acting on the best interest of you and the forum in general. I'm going to look into your issue to see what I can suggest but my phone is motorola so it would appear to be a diff sms app.

    I understand. We try to keep the issues related to phones together so that members who have the same phone can find support.

    I hope the clarifies.

    In the mean time you could try downloading handcent or chomp sms from the marketplace and haulting the stock sms notifications alltogether.

    Thanks for the help. I'm starting to feel resentful of this phone. I also had this problem on the X as well though.

    I'm too scared to root the phone and also have read too many horror stories about non stock MMs apps deleting all messages to try one. I think for all these phones are capable of, they should still be able to perform what the dumb phones can.

    I haven't had any problems with handcent. But then again I don't have a need or desire to save all my msgs so I can't say that I have checked to see that they are ALL there.

    There are also programs you can get that back up your msgs. you can do that too before trying handcent or chomp.

    I tried all kinds of save apps, play apps, etc with less than desired results. Who wants to open an app just to use an open app?
    I ended up going with handcent as my text app vs the main one and have since deleted all the work around apps because handcent does it all without opening anything else and works nicely with non stock keypad apps
    If you decide to go with handcent just turn off notifications in your handcent app to avoid doubles or set them to silent.
    With a little playing around you can set the app so reading, replying, saving, etc are so much more to your liking than the stock
