Hey guys, I just recently got my HTC hero and I have a question about the messaging app. First of all, I am currently using Handcent mainly because if you use the stock app, texts always show up on the lock screen even if you are using the pattern lock. That is annoying, and I don't understand what the point of the pattern lock is if you can just see my texts without having to even unlock my phone...anyway, so I am using handcent and it's fine. I've made sure to remove notifications on the stock app so that I don't get double notifications, but my question is: is there a way to delete the stock app? I mean is the phone going to slow down since it is getting texts from 2 apps, does that make sense? Even though the notifications are disabled for the stock app, the texts still go there and they are also going to handcent...So basically i would like to know if: 1. i can delete the stock app (i have rooted my phone so...) 2. does it matter that the phone is pulling texts to two different apps 3. is there a way to make my texts not go to my lock screen, if so i would just not use handcent Finally, on handcent, i will oftentimes get a text twice from people. does anyone have this problem? Ok tahnks!
