    Just go to your settings in the default messaging app and turn off all notifications there. That's all you have to do!

    I was struggling with this as well. Go into the settings under the factory "messenger" program. Then disable "auto retrieve". Handcent will still retrieve the messages but the standard program will not. It works great with these settings.

    I have a problem too! Only one contact of mine, who is not on the blacklist, never shows up in my notifications. I've tried deleting the contact, then reentering the number, but it still doesn't notify my when she text messages me. Again, she isn't on the blacklist. Has anyone else had this problem, and do you know of a fix?
