    I like ES File Explorer. You can enable it to be a root explorer and to mount the /system partition as writable. It's also free.

    Another way you can do it is if you have Titanium Backup, select the app in the list and just tap uninstall (assuming you have the full version of TB).

    Rather than delete it why don't you use a root explorer and change the name of the apk. It's just as effective and if something terrible happens and you need it again for some reason, it's there.

    I'd be very careful deleting stock communication apps. Many time you will find (too late) that they provide additional functionality and services for other aspects of the phone. By over managing your file system you could disable features that can only be restored by flashing a stock rom (factory reset may not restore deleted core apps).

    If you are unsure, let it be.

    I would not delete it. I "think" it's needed for messaging functionality. You can also use App Quarantine to "test" freezing it if you don't have Titanium full.

    Handcent needs the stock messaging app to work, so deleting it will cause serious problems

    Ditto - what he said. You can disable notifications in the stock app so you can then use Handcent notifications without "doubling" your notifications.
