    I have a couple of questions.

    1. How can I send a new text to someone that is not in my contacts ?
    2. How far off are we from being able to do a search in contacts via the keyboard on a q9h?

    Great product
  5. 1. Don't think you can.
    2. I think Brian is working on this...

    I posted this on the old thread but it may have went overlooked so I'll repost:

    anyone else seeing considerable slowdown as the conversation gets longer? It makes sense that it takes longer to open since there is more information there but even when opening XT it takes longer and longer each time.

    I'm not sure if it's directly related to the number of text I have in my inbox or not.

    One of the reasons why I wanted and bought this program was to keep track of my conversation with people. Kinda defeats the whole purpose if you need to delete conversations to speed the program back up.

    But if there is nothing that can be done I guess I'll just have to live with it. But I was just wondering if anyone is experiencing this and if there is anything Birdsoft can do to speed up the performance more?

    I have it installed on the device. right now I'm having to go back and delete some of the conversation so it isn't agonizingly slow.

    Yes, I completely deleted all my text messages before I installed the program. The program just keeps getting slower and slower :(

    Its amazing how we can have the same phone, same OS, different experiences... Sorry fellas.

    ET works great for me. And its Extremely fast. I wonder if the problem is carrier specific... I'm with Verizon and I experience no problems. Who are you all with?

    Personally, I'm with sprint. I don't see how the carrier would have anything to do with the speed of the software on the phone. Like you say, we have the same phone, same OS, etc etc.

    I have all my programs installed on the actual device. I wonder if that has anything to do with it?
  16. I have it installed on my card.
    I use verizon.

    how many messages do you have in your inbox, including sent items?

    it could be because of the huge inbox/sentbox size as each conversation requires a scan on each of the sms folder to create a conversation thread. Because the default windows sms store is not designed wtih thread conversation in mind, I can imagine software like extremetext will need to scan the entire text store before displaying them in threading form.

    Palm thread messaging might not have this problem, because they save the message in their propietory format, which could be designed for better performance. The downside is you can't use other tools like Jeyo extender that assumes text messages are in default store.

    could be the version of XT that you are using. I was using version 1.02 early on and I realized that 1.1 was out. You can download it from Birdsoft's site and it makes a huge difference!!

    Well, I said that because sometimes Windows Mobile is different on different carriers and devices.

    WM has carrier specific changes done to it that sometimes may effect the way one app works on the phone compared to the same phone, same os, with another carrier.

    For example, each carrier has their own system settings for sms and mms. I would imagine that WM would be adjusted slightly to ensure proper sms or mms correspondance on different carriers. Hence, a program like ET operating differently when using WM sms settings of AT&T vs verizon's sms settings

    Just a suggestion :2cool:
