    Hello-I have this issue with double icon in my notification bar, a handcent bubble and a white envelope. I have spent hours searching for the answer in multiple forums all pertaining to this issue, which seems to be rampant....and have found none that fixes it. Heres what I have done: turned off ALL notifications in standard settings...no fix. Even selected handcent as default SMS as suggested...no fix. I read if you have beautiful widgets installed it can hijack SMS and cause both handcent icon and white envelope, I uninstalled it...no fix. I have used actual icon not shortcut to handcent like suggested...no fix. Heres the funny, I re-selected the notifications in standard SMS then I got THREE notifications (one green bubble, one purple - which I customized, and one white envelope all within seconds of each other....) What the heck? I looked in the icons for handcent and this envelope matches one in the glossary but it is NOT selected, obviously is a hancent issue but I am so annoyed with not being able to find the answer and getting double dinged wen a msg comes in. Has anyone found the answer?

    Uninstall standard messaging or Handcent? I read that you cannot uninstall the standard messaging.

    Not uninstall, just turn off the notifications on the stock messaging app.

    No, what u do is freeze it. I beleive it is titanium back up. If you freeze it that means if all else fails you cam freeze or thaw it back to your phone.

    Sorry, I don't know what that means or how to freeze it other than to turn notifications off. Any explicit directions you can offer me?

    Thanks for your help though.... Kim
