    SMS notifications duplicated using Handcent

    Hi
    just installed Handcent SMS which is great but I can't find how to stop SMS's going into my normal messaging app. I am getting duplicate notifications can I turn off or shut down the stock message app in favour of Handcent?

    thanks

    I HATE SMS on Android

    I had this problem. All you need to do is open up the stock message app, hit menu key, settings, and deselect where it says 'display notification in status bar'.

    I am a little embarrassed to ask this,but. I also have Hancent installed and am using it with the same annoyance. Would you please tell me how to "open the stock message app" Do I have to uninstall Hancent?

    Thank you

    No problem, just go to your app drawer (bottom centre of your home screen, a square with little squares in it), this contains a list of all your apps. One of them should be a green icon that says messaging. Click it, it will open up the stock message app. Then follow what I said in previous post. :-)
