    Hey,

    I would like to use ChompSMS on my Galaxy Apollo on 2.2, however the stock messaging app sits on the bottom row of the screen and I can not find any way to remove it? Is it possible to replace that with ChompSMS?

    Icon can be seen on this image:

    I've tried long press and hold to remove but no luck.

    Annoying to keep it there as it shows unread messages etc which obviously I would be using Chomp for this.

    Thanks,
    Matt

    You might have better luck asking in a forum for your device. This forum is general and gets a lot of traffic. Your thread will easily get buried.

    you have to go into the app (messeges) and turn off the notifications for it. if you manually go to messeges, they will be there as well as in chomp, you just wont be notified twice about it. it will use and prompt you to use chomp.

    Yeah I can do that fine but the icon is still there. I'd just like to remove the icon from the home screen on the bottom row - any ideas how I could do that?
