I am now back on track. Changed my mobile to a One + and my Handcent SMS is working a dream. I can change background wallpaper which I couldn't on my Moto Z for some reason but it's great to have my Handcent working as it should be. The Handcent team never fail in their quest to keep happy customers 👍 this is definitely the best SMS service out there. 10/10 for brilliant support.
I looked at this app as my phone was converting smilies in an sms to mms so I got a large bill. With this I can tell it not to allow that conversion so it's much better for sms. It's also a more intuitive interface than the Samsung one. The all the other shroff ability to backup messages is helpful too, but don't back up your contacts as your Google account already does that and it causes conflicts if you try to restore from this too. All in all I am finding this app useful, but please do a fixed price for advert removal without the backup etc, and not a recurring cost! I don't mind paying a few £ but I don't need all the other stuff.
I love Handcents texting app!!! I have used this for several years. No matter what as soon as I get a phone, this is one of the very first apps I download! The only thing I would fix if I could is being able to send more than one photo at a time and larger content. But that is the only thing which isn't major. I love this!!!**UPDATE** I STILL LOVE HSNDCENTS APP BUT YOU CAN STILL ONLY SEND ONE PHOTO AT A TIME AND I STILL CANNOT SHARE A VIDEO. OTHERWISE THIS APP IS AWESOME!!!!
Everything works great in the latest version and my new s8+. Most of my previous issues were related to how lg had their versions of android setup. Handcent's support is awesome too, they respond fast and often will make you a custom build to test to see if your problems go away. Very happy with this app again
I've been using this app for over a year now, and have found it is the only good one for customization. I think the only part that drives me nuts is if a text comes in at an auto pop up, if I am texting on that window and another text comes in the window closes and oftentimes the text I was in mid typing with disappears. Other than that I enjoy the app :)
I've been using this app for years and loved it. Just got a Pixel 2 and the feature "vibrate on sent message" doesn't work. Would really like to have it back. *Update* This was a configuration problem on my end. Handcent support worked with me and helped me get it fixed. Thank you!
