    Install handcent sms. Turn off notifications and set as your default messaging app. Its probably your best bet.

    Only problem is you can not disable the notifications for the stock messaging app on the Behold II. Has anyone figured out a way to do this yet??

    Well what I did was turn off the notifications on handcent. And have the quick reply window pop up (without the screen unlocking) so you only have one notification. The only thing is you have to clear the notification bar.

    I've been using the Handcent messenger app with its notifications turned off. The only problem, aside from Samsung's insistent notifications, is that whenever I get a message, the phone automatically--in the background--launches TeleNav, Messaging, Video Player, and a couple others. This tends to make the keyboard a bit sluggish in Handcent, and it's really annoying.

    If I root this thing, can I get rid of the Samsung-included Messaging app??
