    You'll need to turn off the notifications on the stock messenger and select to change the default to handcent when it brings up the messenger choice. That'll get you going. If you don't turn off the stock messenger notifications you will get two for each message.

    I think I can help you out. On your default messaging app. Open it up hit the menu button and go into settings. Make sure you uncheck "Auto Retreive" under your MMS settings and DEFINITELY uncheck "Notifications" under the Notifications section. Now your default messaging app wont notify you when you recieve an SMS/MMS message only Handcent will. As far as when you test your Handcent to see if your Trackball will light. Im on a rooted version of Froyo 2.2 and even when I "Test my Notifications" it doesnt light. Just ask someone to text you and The trackball should work. Hope this helped

    In addition to what mightytalldude suggested, also go into contacts, choose to text someone, then set default to Handcent.
