    Can I delete standard Messaging App if I have Handcent SMS?

    I really prefer the Handcent application for SMS as it is more user friendly, has more options, and is better on the battery usage.

    My question is, can I delete the standard Messaging application (the green icon) from my Nexus One and therefore by default use the Handcent SMS application... or will that screw up the phone.

    Thoughts?

    Anyone already do this?

    Regards,
    Sam

    Do not delete the stock messaging app! Handcent relies on it to work. You'll lose all SMS capabilities if it's gone. Just set Handcent as the default, turn off notifications, and ditch the icon.

    Some apps that you can delete though if you're pressed for space are: Amazon MP3, Google Googles, Email, Car Dock, Voice Dialer, Facebook, YouTube, Talk.
