    I just installed handcent and it works great. The only thing is i get double the messages. I get one to my handcent and one to my default messaging app. I dont think i can uninstall the default program and i tried messing around with settings but still nothing..

    Anyway i can turn off the messages going to my default messaging app? \


    thanks

    Did you use the Search? Cuz I know I just saw the answer to this one, but can't remember the thread title. It was a simple solution too. Sorry I don't remember though. Something bout disabling Notification somewhere.

    I'm a drifter.. here and there.
    In short, turn notifications off for the stock messaging app.

    As Lexus has said...currently, the only option is to disable the notifications from the native messaging application. It will continue to send and receive messages, you just won't know it, basically it's running the background.

    Go in to the "Messaging" application, press "menu" and bring up your "Settings", uncheck the notifications in there.

    I've also noticed something with Handcent that I'm unsure of how to adjust. When I get a message, it pops up on the screen and I reply to it. Only, after I hit send, it still shows as unread in the notification icon. Is there a setting that I missed somewhere enabling that?

    Let's toss this into the mix. I have tests sent from Verizon at a scheduled time, (jokes, factoids, etc) Since installing the latest handcent I get TWO of these each time. One has the type of message (v.fact, v.gossip, etc) the other is identical but it is sorted according to the number that it comes from (1111). It only happens to the messages sent from verizon (they come from 1111) and it didn't start happening until installing the new handcent version. It's only a minor annoyance but it does confuse me!

    I hope this doesn't get the developer blitzed with emails, but the dude was SO helpful! I emailed him via the market link, and he set me up with him on Google talk. He emailed me the beta of the latest release, and talked me through it. So, if this (or any other) thread isn't helpful, the Dev is. :)
