    I downloaded Handcent and like it a lot but get two notifications, one for a text message through handcent and another through the stock Messaging function. How do I change it to only get the notification through handcent?

    first, search previous threads :)
    and second, go into stock messaging app settings and turn off notifications.

    Don't forget to turn the default notifications back on if you decide to stop using Handcent.

    I was using SMS Popup and then decided not to anymore but forgot to turn on the default notifications.

    I missed quite a few text messages before I realized that, lol.

    I did a search and didn't see anything come up, but I could've missed something. How do I get to the stock messaging app settings?

    1) Start the standard SMS App: "Messaging"
    2) Press the menu button
    3) Press "Settings"
    4) Scroll down and un-check the Notifications check-box (to turn off standard notifications)

    Repeat the steps to turn the default notifications back on.

    Hope this helps.

    Perfect, thanks. I guess I didn't realize the menu button does separate things when you have an app up or when you're at the home screen.
