    So I had an issue since I got the phone with the SMS client sending phantom messages to people. 3 users so far report getting blank messages from me, and indeed they show up in the stream.

    So I downloaded Handcent and I like it better.

    I turned off the notification for the native SMS client...is there any way to turn it off alltogether?

    Thanks!

    OK.

    I have a profile changer. Will that changer change the Handcent or will it change the SMS client? Or will it just change the generic "notifications" settings and whatever program uses notifications unto itself will prevail?

    Sorry if that doesn't make sense..

    So I am still getting reports of people getting phantom texts from me.

    I'm only running Handcent, not the native app.

    HELP!

    you should be good, that default is a os specific deal, not profiles.

    crazy man, i found this though

    http://community.vzw.com/t5/Android-Devices/Blank-SMS-Messages/m-p/116863

    if still not resolved, call vzw cust serv, they can apparently clear some log that MIGHT fix the issue

    That's it!! Thanks so much! It was happening when I power cycled the phone. And I did have some random undelivered message that I couldn't clear. I will clear it all out now.

    Excellent!!! YAY!
