    Hey all,

    I've downloaded and been using Handcent app for my messages, its a really good app dose everything i wanted out of a message app.

    How ever there is one thing i cant see to get working, I'm using the HTC desire and every time i resevice a message it shows i have a message on the handcent icon on my home screen that works great. Its when i lock the keypad and unlock the keypad i still get the last message showing up on the lock screen and the notification bar at the top is still displying the message icon even tho i have read the last message. i have been thru the setting and cant find out to turn this off or to use handcent has my default messaging app.

    Could anyone help me please.

    Try two things... in setting, and you have to go through the settings, there's a setting from notifications in the STATUS BAR.

    I know when i get a message the Icon appears in the status bar, it will stay in the status bar unless i acknowledge the ICON by dropping down the window (HTC Incredible) and press it taking me to the message or hitting the clear button in the drop down window.
