    Handcent worked fine before i updated to 2.1 but ever since then i cant get the default sms to stop popping up when i get new messages. I have already unchecked every setting in the default app. Is there another setting i am forgetting to mess with??

    You should only need to turn off the stock notifications

    That's what I thought but for some reason its not working. It is unchecked and I have restarted a few times but still the same

    In my stock messages app I also have Auto Retrieve turned off. Not sure if this helps, but I've had no problems with it unchecked.

    Also, just a thought here- Are you maybe seeing the Handcent popup?
    Hanndcent > Menu > Settings > Enable Popup.

    I must be missing something. I can't find the stock notifications default to turn off my notifications so that I'm not getting 2 copies of each message.

    Open stock Messages app > Menu > settings > 6th from the top, Received Notification - un-check it.
