1-Handcent. Have used it with no problems since original Droid. With the Droid MAXX, If I disable native messenger app, any texts sent through Handcent fail. If I enable native app, but force close it, the native app will come back online with a restart, and seems like it will re-enable itself. Result is I get a native app alert and window and a Handcent alert and window, simultaneously. I either don't recall or there is no way to tell the phone that the default is Handcent. Does anyone have this problem or know how to fix it? 2-Apps that "Say Caller/Text Sender's Name"--Have used Spoken in the past. No problems. Now, when a caller is calling, it will say the caller's name...good. When a text arrives, it is silent. I thought there was something in Handcent to configure, like not choosing an alert, but that was not correct. If anyone is using a similar "announcement app", let me know which one and what I may not be configuring correctly. Thanks for any advice or info.
