    hello everyone,
    i spent a few hours reading the other posts on handcent problems/issues, and i did some research too and im not sure what else to do. I got my eris about 5 days ago so im still learning new things about it.
    I downloaded the handcent app and got a few problems, when i receive an sms i get the notification from the handcent, but the native sms still recieves the text even after disabling "notifications"
    here's a break down of what i did:

    Turned off notifications on native sms app


    went to Android market downloaded handcent sms

    Received following message upon opening notification when it finished downloading.

    I believe that Handcent and most of the other aftermarket messaging apps 'piggyback' on the stock messaging app, when you go to manage applications did you have an option to 'clear defaults'?

    Go into stock Messaging app and disable all notifications. This has been mentioned a million times and when you install Handcent it tell you to do that too.

    Question about handcent, I downloaded it yesterday. When i went to change the notification sound it would list several options i could choice from such as ringtone from the orignial andriod or mp3 download ringtones. But i accidently pressed the original ringtones and it set it as a default. I was wondering if there was any way i could restore handcent so i can set the mp3 files as a notifcation sound instead of the sounds that came on the droid. I tryed deleting handcent and reinstalling it, but its still doesnt give me the options to use my mp3 ringtone.
