Just remove the messaging icon from your desktop and put the Handcent one in its place. That is what I did. No need to worry about which is the default.
When I attempt to select text messaging from my favorites list, it automatically prompts me to the stock messaging application. I want this to default to handcent. When I first got the phone it use to prompt me to select a messaging application (stock text messaging or Handcent). Now it just defaults to the stock text messaging application even through I have Handcent set up in the Handcent Application Settings as the default application for both MMS & SMS.
Need help with this?
