    Handcent

    Ok so I downloaded this app from the market and I like the fact that I can send out ringtones through text messages however now when get a text message I get it twice once from the orignal text message on Droid and once from the Handcent app. Is there anyway to stop the second one??

    Thanks in advance

    Disable all notifications in your stock SMS settings.

    New to droid x coming from a blackberry. How do you "disable" stock SMS settings and ringers? My original phone ringer still rings not the ones I choose? Thank you in advance.

    Open the stock messaging app... go into settings.... turn off auto retrieve... turn off notification.

    Sorry again. Where is the stocking message app" located. This whole android thing is so new. I am learning, ever so slowly, but once I get the hang of it, hopefully I won't have to bother people anymore. Plus, I am one of those people a little "anxious" about downloading apps. Are they pretty safe through the market?? Thank you in advance. Please just walk me through it step by step. I know nothing about this phone format yet.

    stock messaging app is the one in the app drawer labeled "Messaging"

    Most apps are safe in the market, but there are some junk apps.

    Most apps with 4 or more stars are pretty solid.

    You should always read thru the comments on the app via the Market and you can read comments on them here on DF.
