    I have the latest version installed as well. I will say that I didn't delete all my old text messages when upgrading versions.

    Hockey did you delete all your old text messages when upgrading XT?

    It is rather strange that some people seem to encounter this slowdown more than others, Im not sure if it is Phone related and is more dramatic for some, or some people's expectations exceed others or a mix of both. But yes we have to sort your entire database on startup and have to load them in on entry of the particular "contact" the first time you view them, so there is a performance hit the bigger the conversations get. I did a ton of optimizing so that this wouldnt be quite as noticable(a lot in 1.1) and Im sure there is more that I can and will do, but yes, Microsoft didn't design the database to be accessed threaded so....

    Wow a New Thread!!

    I know this is a Q-dedicated site, but I tried out XT on my step-daughter's Pantech Duo the other night and while it seems to work just fine, I noticed it had serious problems with MMS messages. The Duo also runs WM6 Standard, but for some reason it utilizes a single "Messages" inbox for both SMS and MMS messages. XT would barf an error at startup about it not being able to read the messages in and it could be due to one or more corrupt MMS. In order to get that message to go away, I had to delete all the MMS in the Sent Items, Deleted Items, and Inbox. Just thought I'd mention it in case anyone else had similar issues.

    Yes, we do not handle MMS, since all carriers have to handle each on their own so they all are different implementations....

    ET and Outlook Mail

    Has anyone else noticed that while using ET that everytime you send or receive a message it puts a "tmail.exe" into the task manager? I wonder if this isnt the cause of some of the slow downs? Is there a way to stop this or do you have to periodicaly go to the task manager and kill them all?

    If it kicks it off it should eventually close it as well... It 'shouldnt' have anything to do with any slowdowns.

    Ok

    Ok.Thanks for the response.Love the program btw. It just looks a little strange to have 10 or 15 "txmail.exe" running at the same time. I'll keep an eye out for what you said.

    please read the threads on this
  13. My problem with txt is getting worse. now the phone only allows #'s instead of txt at times in XT. I have to reboot the phone to get it to work again.
    I have reinstalled it a few times to no avail. I am going back to the older and more reliable version of the program.

    I'm now getting reboots, and I think I've traced it to my combination of using XT with the system shortcuts set to XT, and Auto Keylock showing status icons. If I leave XT as the default messaging app and the auto keylock screensaver comes on, it'll sometimes respond really slowly to the unlock softkey, and then promptly reboot.

    I tried disabling the screensaver and XT seems to behave just fine. Likewise, I reenabled the screensaver and took off the system shortcuts to XT and it behaves just fine. Maybe a memory leak from one or the other apps?

    lately ive been have this problem with Extreme Text that when I go to text it automatically starts typing in symbols instead of letters and I have to go back and press the function key to get it to type letters. Has anyone else had this problem? Its very annoying because half the time i dont notice and have to go back and delete the whole text and rewrite it.
  16. There are a few of us with this issue.....

    I think XT rereads the message store every time it's launched and/or brought to the foreground. Otherwise it wouldn't display any new "threads" since the first launch.

    Has anyone tried out the new 1.12?
