Handcent SMS - resets phone?


Handcent SMS - resets phone?

Been experiencing an issue where Handcent SMS seems to reset my phone when receiving a text message. Anyone else exepriencing this issue or can recommend a better text message app than the default?


I have Handcent installed so I can send MMS messages only because the default app is still shrinking images. No issues here. However, I have all the notifications within Handcent disabled so it uses the default messaging notifications.

You could try the same, see what happens. If it stops crashing at that point ,then it has something to do with the way Handcent is intercepting notifications. In any case, it would probably have to have an update from Handcent to fix.

If my post or someone else's answered your question please mark it an Accepted Solution.

Keep in mind, like you, I am a Sprint subscriber. I am in no way employed by Sprint in any sense. I just know stuff.

worst case scenario hit up the google play store and read the reviews on the handcent app itself..see if others are complaining about this.

I like many others come onto this site for assistance and to help others. Marking a reply as helpful or correct helps others with like issues when they try to search the site for assistance. I do not work for Sprint and my suggestions and or opinions are my own. *************************************************************************************************************
