    You don't want to uninstall it, trust me.

    You just need to go into the App itself and change the Notification settings (turn them off). That way you only get a Notification from Handcent.

    The reason you want to keep the Messages App is because sometimes my Handcent app doesn't display my downloaded MMS messages, and I have to go into the Messages App to view them (only sometimes - other times Handcent works perfectly fine).

    ^Handcent and Chomp both pull their information from the DEFAULT app.

    What's so fantastic about handcent? I just got my hero not an hour ago and I'm still new to this app market. Should I get this handcent program?

    Both handcent and chomp sms r really nice apps if u do not like the way the stock messaging app looks or displays messages. they both have a lot of customizable options compared to the stock app. i personally use the stock messanger but i also have handcent to send pic messages cuz the stock syas my pics r too big.

    one thing i recommend to dl if u want to keep the stock messaging app is "sms popup" it uses the stock messaging app but displays a popup on the screen when u get a message instaed of just putting the message in the task bar.

    i hope this helped

    Open messaging program.

    Menu - settings - notifications. Untick the box.
