    How to guide: Disable double notifications when using handcent sms

    Seems as though there are 4 or 5 of these threads popping up every day. The annoyance of having double notifications for received SMS seems to be the biggest "complaint" about Handcent SMS. Here is a simple guide to make your life easier.

    1. Open the "messaging" from the app drawer
    2. Push the "menu" button(the 2nd button from left on the bottom of your Droid
    3. Click SETTINGS
    4. Scroll down and UNCHECK "Notifications"
    5. To futher disable the mssaging app you can UNCHECK " Auto-Retrieve"(this prevents the "Messaging" App from even downloading messages.
    6. Exit the app. Rejoice. Live long and Prosper. Yay!

    Well that is great to know! I actually uninstalled it because of that. Also, Handcent seems to not allow me to send as large of a file as the installed messaging, is there a fix for that too?

    Thanks!

    Thanks for the inciteful response... This seems to actually be one of the most common problems with the droid and Handcent.

    That was making me crazy, now that I have the default app disabled, how do I change the sound for Handscent to what I was using for text message notifications?

    I followed your instructions to the letter, even disabled the default messaging app from even retrieving the messages, and am still getting double notifications. The "Droid" sound that I have set as my default notification sound, and the R2-D2 sound that is set in Handcent. Any other suggestions? It's something that I have learned to live with, but would love to be able to correct.

    Go into Handcent > Settings > Notification Setting > Select ringtone

    Thanks for posting this OP... it really would be unnecessary if people took a few minutes to look in all their settings and figure things out for themselves... but oh well
