    you just turn off the notifications in the stock messaging app. then use the one you downloaded. i dont know if thats what you mean by "turn off," but thats how do it

    You can't "turn it off" to my knowledge, only turn off notifications with the Android messaging app. This is what I do since I run Handcent.

    When you're in the stock messaging app:
    Menu Key -> Settings -> Scroll down to "Notifications" and uncheck.

    go into contacts and swipe to the left for a message. It'll ask you which you would like to use as default...select ur new client =) Took me a LONG time to figure that out. I was getting two sets of texts.
