    This is/was happening to me also. I uninstalled Handcent untill I figure out how to do it. Just got my phone last night, and joined the forums today. I got a lot to learn..

    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.
