    Re: the keyboard, how do I get it to work? I downloaded it, but can't figure out how to use it.

    Re: SMS, I now get notifications on Handcent SMS and the SMS program that came with the phone. I took the "Messages" widget off of home, but still get notifications of a new message; how do I stop that?

    Thanks in advance...

    Open Messages...then Menu -> Settings -> uncheck "Auto-retrieve". Now it won't get your texts anymore.

    Thanks, ttran97...that worked. I found the faq's (duh) and re: followed the instructions for using the Handcent T9 keyboard (checked Handcent keyboard), but the Handcent keyboard still doesn't show up.

    I don't use handcent so I can't help you out there. :)

    Yes and I actually used it the other day . works pretty well provided there isn't too much back ground noise.

    Yeah, ditto that...I'm surprised how well it works. Keep the background noise down and talk a bit slower and more deliberate and it gets it right.

    Assuming you do have Handcent SMS installed, it's under Menu when you have the screen up to compose a SMS.
