I just commented on the app via the market and let them know about the MMS problem, we can also email the developer as well. maybe if enough people send an email and comment it will get fixed.

Has anyone e-mailed the developer with a link to this thread? If not I will... just don't wanna spam his mailbox with the same things!

Recieved my first mms with handcent, and it was a total fail, like other manual download then blank. Dont even know if it was a pic or video. Problem now is I can even go into the stock messenger app. as handcent automatially starts up even when clicking the stock messenger icon.

Try removing Handcent and when MMS come in use the default messenger after that you can re-install Handcent, but I would recommend using the default to download MMS until they fix the problem. At least that's what has been working for me. Once you have the MMS downloaded with the default you can use Handcent to view it. Kind of a pain, you need to email Handcent and tell them about it. Hopefully once they see the pattern they will fix it. It has to do with Handcent and how it deals with downloads... good luck.

i just figured that if some are having issues with handcent, it might be one of the features.. maybe we can narrow it down?

my daughter sent me a text last night with a pic of our kitten in it, and I had to manually click on to download as well, but my other issue (and probably more ignorance than handcent) is that when I went to save it, it wouldn't save to my gallery---only upload or set as wallpaper---but I wanted to save it----only had this phone for a few days and coming from a Dare, there are a loooootttt of things that confuse me lol
(but I am blonde---lmao)

I've had 2 MMS that I couldn't view in Handcent... but I could long press on the message and had the option to save the file (in Handcent)... and it saved fine to the SD card. Weird :confused:
At the same time I was able to view the files perfectly fine in the stock messaging.

Neither MMS came through with the pop-up. I have is enabled to only pop up when the screen is asleep, if the phone is awake, it doesn't pop up.

I have problems sending pictures I take with my droid it always says they are to big and do I want to resize and I say yes but it never seems to work. Also my friend had an iphone app which does free text messaging but I have to text to an email address and they don't work in handsent but I can send those in the default messaging program.

I have to resize, the phone says its resizing, then it says it to big and give me the option to resize again. I do and it sends, so it seems the phone has to resize TWICE or at least for me it does.

I just received an MMS from my daughter and it didn't make a difference and it failed. It was worth a try.
