    After installing the Handcent app, I now get 2 notications for every text messge I receive. One from Handcant, and another from the Droid's default text message app. Is there a way to turn off the defualt text msg app?

    Yep, open the stock app, go to settings and then you can turn off notifications there.

    Where do I find the stock app at? Sorry, been looking at this too long and I'm sure I'm just overlooking it.

    Pull up the tab on your homescreen that shows all your apps. Look for the smiling green "chat bubble" icon called messaging. That is the standard app.

    Thanks, I knew I was just overlooking it. It was next to my Market icon and the green icons just blended together :D

    The funny thing with handcent now, is I get double text, inside the app (handcent) , but nothing from the stock app. I turned off every option in the stock app. MMS, and SMS are working fine in Handcent.

    Only on the receiving end, not sent items.
