Default Change default apps/icons

On the home creen of my apollo, there are 4 default icons which stay there whichever screen I go to - they are
PHONE / CONTACTS / MESSAGING / APPLICATIONS

I am installing Handcent SMS and would like that app to be launced by the messaging icon, instead of the default app. Is this possible?

I don't have your phone but on most Android phones you can do exactly what you want. I would suggest that you add the app to your home screen then press on the app and keep it pressed and drag it to the bottom toolbar.

As I said I don't have your phone but that works on mst phones. The only other suggestion I have is to add a launcher program if no one else can tell you how to do it with your phone. I use GoLauncher and it has many capabilities including custmizing the icons that you have in the bottom toolbar.

You could also call you phone provider for tech support.
