    I've downloaded handcent and much prefer using this to the HTC message app (can't stand having everyones contacts, emails etc)

    Little problem I've just noticed though. When I got a text it bleeped twice, once for Handcent and one for HTC Messages...how do I disable HTC's app, and just use Handcent (if this is possible!)

    Just go into settings on the stock app and disable notifications.

    open up the app called "Messages" from programs then press "menu" then "settings" then untick "Recieved notification"

    That will sort you

    try to send something or reply to a sms. It will ask you to choose with which application will do it. select handcent and check the option below so it will never ask you again

    handcent > menu > settings > application settings > send message settings > tick show mobile num only

    handcent > menu > settings > social network settings > untick show social contacts

    That setup might be to your liking too :p

    Just a note though.

    Are you on droid 2.1, or have you upgraded to 2.2?

    The only reason I asked is that since I rooted, and upgraded with a custom ROM, my Handcent notifications have stopped working. As a result I'm using the stock app for the notifications.

    As I said, I'm using a custom ROM from MoDaCo, so it MIGHT be a unique problem to that, and the genuine HTC ROM MIGHT be fine.

    Just something to bear in mind.
