Not even the default tone plays when I get a message.

What am I missing?
I use Handcent on my GN 3 without any issues at all. Here's how to make it work for you. In HC settings Notificationa ON , Notification Settings, Sound SILENT. Then in HC Application Settings Default Messaging APP DISABLE. In the GN 3 Messages App leave Auto Retrieve ON and Notifications ON and select a notification tone. THIS WILL WORK. Unfortunately you will still receive the annoying pop up for the GN 3 Messages app.
