    I'm on a Palm Treo 500v ...

    Do they get deleted, or do they just don't show up in XT?
    If they don't show up in the standard messenging program, have you tried using the standard program for a while to see if it's XT related?

    Anyone know why my predictive text would be gone in XT but not in the regular software?

    Posted on the Q9M thread:

    Hi I just got the new Q9m because my old phone's "a" button broke. They didn't have anymore of the Black ones in stock at the store or the warehouse, so they upgraded me for free. I like the new phone a lot, except when using the Extreme Text (which I LOVE by the way), it doesn't seem to cooperate as well as before.

    Even after setting the "System Shortcut to XT" to yes, when clicking on Text Messages from the home screen, it still brings me to the default test messages. I have made sure to kill the Text Messages app through Task Manager, and reboot my phone as well. The only way I can get to Extreme Text is by clicking on the icon from the MRU list. Edit: I can also click on the right soft key after a message has come in and it will take me to XT. It looks like the only time it doesn't work is when I click on the Text Messages link from the home page.

    Anyone else have this problem? I just got it last night so I haven't had a chance to see if there are any other problems aside from this (hopefully not).

    I'm running a registered copy of 1.12.1 and the only other 3rd party app that I have is DialPad.

    Thanks for any help!

    Not using SMS Bubbles.
    I noticed the loss on an older sent message. It neither displays in XT nor in the standard app. But I'd assume it's a XT issue, since I've never noticed this before.

    I'm on WM6 by the way.

    Forwarding Text Msgs to an email

    I would like to save all my text conversations and it seems like the best way to do it forward it to an email address. The limitation is that forwarding to an email only allows 160 characters including email address. I had to chop up conversations to be able to forward it.

    Does anyone know a less cumbersome way of doing this? This is my first post, I apologize if this was issue was previously posted. Many Thanks!

    Now that I am a fan of Twitter, a quick suggestion.

    When I get a text with a URL in it I would love to be able to click it and have PIE open it.

    Wow, i feel dumb now. It was simple enough as hitting the center key one more tme.
  16. I cannot click links in XT. it selects it and nothing happens.
    In the regular text program, no problems.
    XT is driving me nuts. May have to give it the boot soon.

    i think extreme text needs a new version a.s.a.p with some new features.

    seems like all these companies (smarttoolkit, pointui, extreme text) are just dragging their feet with releases.

    now i know stk, point ui and such is freeware therefore we should be greatful, but man... u want people to use ur stuff, supply some support.

    Is there a way to go straight to extreme text with the message softkey on the moto q? I'd like it to go straight into ET without going to the ET/Outlook menu screen since I don't use outlook.
  19. Nope.
    It is a os limitation, not a extreme text limitation I believe.

    Thanks for the quick reply. Word of advice to anyone looking to do this: don't try to edit the key manually in the registry (\HKLM\Software\Motorola\Keypad). I just tried this and it made the button "stuck" in a loop (resolvable with resco via pc though). A little more searching reveals that editing keypad buttons with the new update (I'm guessing MOL2 or 3 and beyond) causes this problem. I'm on a sprint q w/ MOL4. I guess I'll just have to live with pressing the center key an extra time :tounge:
