    [FONT=&quot]Since I installed handcent (luv it) I too have noticed I am getting duplicate messages each time a new message comes in. I get one notice on the status bar from handcent and one from the default text app. Is there anyway to disable the stock app?

    Go into the stock text messaging app. Then hit the menu button > messaging settings > then uncheck notifications.

    I have turned off notification on the stock program but am still getting the double notification.

    Is there another background program enabling the notification?

    Yeah, seems like just turning off the notifications on the stock program is not actually turning off the stock program.

    I had to go into the message app. (its the red mailbox looking thing)
    click the mail box.
    at the first screen- click the menu key (far left)
    click message settings
    click text message
    and uncheck everything

    This worked for me. dont know why its different then clicking the text icon right from the start, but it worked for me...
    good luck
