    Ok so I have installed a 3rd party SMS app on my Motorola Atrix 4G and I really like it. However I can not figure out how to run off the default app that came with the phone. So for now I get double notificaitons and I have messages in two sepperate areas. The third party app is much better than the standard one, but I only want one of them.

    Welcome to the forums. What you need to do is disable the notifications in the stock app. To do this open the "messaging" app. From here, you should see all of your e-mail and text messaging icons. Select menu> messaging settings> text messaging> go down to "notifications" and uncheck it. Now the double notifications should stop. Just make sure to leave the notifications "on" in the 3rd party app.

    Thanks, I did what you suggested and it seems to have disabled all my notifications. Then I went into the 3rd party app and fixed it.

    Sorry about that. Forgot to mention to enable the notifications in the 3rd party app.
