    Hey does anybody know when you have the handcent sms app installed how do you stop the regular sms app from being active as to have the handcent app being the only sms client that is on? I was able to turn notifications off and that's cool but if in using handcent I don't want 2 sms apps running......is it possible?

    This is what I figured lol I'm just really paranoid about the battery. I have a task killer app or whatever and my battery still seems to suck. I guess that s what I get for shopping on Craigslist lol.

    All Android phones suck up battery life pretty quickly.

    They apparently take forever to charge too, lol. Are there extended batteries for the moment?

    There are several ROMs and Kernels that will provide a substantial increase on battery life. You should check them out.
