    Slow load on Handcent SMS?

    Anybody else getting that? The first time load it takes a good 20 seconds to come up, but as long as I leave it open, i.e. don't kill the task or back button out, it's fine. Just seems like it creeps on the initial load. Any fixes? I really don't care for the stock SMS app.

    Edit: just started it and it didn't really lag. Maybe you just need a battery pull?

    How would a battery pull help?

    Quite often a battery pull clears up many problems you wouldn't think would be associated. Not a guaranteed fix but also worth a shot

    I doubt it's gonna help. Handcent is the only app doing the creep on the phone, and I've uninstall/reinstalled it. Google says it's a common problem with the Droid X, just wondering if there was a fix or not yet.

    Does your stock text messenger open up just fine? I'll have to double check mine next time I reboot my phone and see if it does it too though I don't recall it having a problem (or perhaps I'm just used to it lol).

    Yeah, the stock one comes up fine, well as fine as it ever did. I really don't care for the stock app. Just tried it, the stock app came up in under 2 seconds.

    34 seconds for Handcent to come up. Just gave that a go for fun. Something's not right with that app. Nothing else on the phone is running slowly.

    Everything on Handsent is going slow for me. Even typing a message. Also when I open it, it slows everything else down after I close it.

    A battery pull is kinda like shutting off your computer. Just resets everything. Maybe Handcent is having an issue. Make sure there isn't an update in the market. Sorry wish I could've been more help!
