    I just switched from a Blackberry Bold 9000 to a Samsung Skyrocket. I was using CrunchSMS and with the BB I was able to block all incoming text messages to the main messenger, so that I only received text messages to CrunchSMS.

    With my Skyrocket, I am using Handcent instead of ChompSMS (the droid version of CrunchSMS). I have disabled the notifications for the Samsung built in messenger so that Handcent is the only place where I receive notifications; however, I want the built in samsung messaging system to stop receiving messages altogether so that I only have them in one place.

    Does anyone know if this is possible? Thanks.

    The way android is designed no

    in the past we could delete the stock messaging app (if rooted) the way handcent is designed it is actually grabbing the messages from the stock app, so if you stop it, all messages stop.


    at least that was my experience when I tried.
