    Welcome to the Android Forums!

    Try going into App Drawer -> Settings -> Applications -> Manage Applications. Click on Handcent. If the button isn't greyed out try pressing "Clear Defaults" and then "Force Close". If "Clear Defaults" is greyed out you might try "Clear Data" instead...

    And if neither works you might try uninstalling the app and then re-installing it. The risk is that you might lose some/all of the messages currently stored by Handcent.
