    hey i recently got my gesire z and been loading it up with apps, i have got the handscent sms app, but i was wondering if there is a way to rename the widget, or maybe even use the display from the standard messaging widget,

    I prefer having it saying Messages, rather then Handscent sms, cause all u can see is handscent. Picky i know but were there is a will there is a way.

    Also with handscent is there a way to remove the counter at the bottom of txts? were is says 6 messages sent. Its very annoying, there is a option to stop showing the number of txts in a conversation but not to remove that

    I have been having the same issues! Here are the answers :)

    To remove the 'Sent' counter:
    1. Go to Settings and then 'Send Message Settings'
    2. Uncheck 'Message Sent Counter' about 1/2 way down the page

    To Rename:
    1. Download Any Cut from the Market for free
    2. Select New Short Cut
    3. Scroll down to Handcent SMS on your list -- a pop up will come and that is where you can rename the Widget
    4. It will create a copy of the Handcent SMS widget so all you need to do on your home screen is trash original Handcent SMS widget and replace it with the new one

    Hope this helps!! :)
