    Thanks for directions. But so far I'm not smart enough to follow. Start where in handcent? Or old message thing or main settings. Thanks.

    No luck. Can't find notifications. I'm on 2.1 have not found a disable box anywhere thanks for being patient with me. Really want handcent to work. Like the voice text.

    use the arrow to get to all programs. Find the one called "messaging" and open it.
    Menu > Settings > Notifications - and uncheck.
    Good Luck!

    Ok let's see if I can make this simpler -

    From any of the 7 main screens hit the up arrow in the bottom left. Scroll through until you find the "Messages" app. Open it and from the first screen (the one with the multiple threads listed) hit "Menu" then "Settings". 2nd from the top, uncheck "Auto-retrieve". 6th from the top uncheck "Received Notification". That should do it.

    Just don't open the old program. Both of them have access to messages.
    Good Luck!
