I hope someone can answer these issues. I use handcent as my text app. I have turned off notifications on the stock app but after I respond to a text on handcent, I sometimes have to go into the stock app as well so the notification light stops blinking at me. Is there any way to prevent this? Another issue I have is I have disabled some of the bloatware apps (google play books, google play movies etc.) which was supposed to be a benefit of ICS. But a few days later, I get notified from the play store to update those apps. When I check them, they are no longer disabled. Can these be permanently disabled? Besides these minor issues, I love this phone.
