    Handcent as default, don't even want stock sms

    Yes, I upgraded to 2.2. But I had Handcent installed when I was running 2.1. Whenever I get a text msg, it seems that I get a notification in the status bar from Handcent, but I get a pop-up from the stock sms program. I only want to use Handcent, but I can't get it to be the default it seems. In the stock sms program, I have turned off 'Delivery Reports' under SMS settings, turned off 'Delivery reports' and 'Auto-retrieve' under MMS settings, and turned off 'Notifications' under Text Messaging settings.

    Then in Handcent settings, I have 'Enable Popup' and 'Notifications' checked. Is there anything I am missing? I also went to the Home Screen, went to 'Settings' -> 'Applications' -> 'Manage Applications', then clicked on Handcent and it says that it is set to launch by default for certain actions. Please help. Thanks.

    So is this an issue with 2.2? If it is, then at least my sanity is intact. I have been screwing with this since I upgraded this morning. If it is a 2.2 issue, at least the devs of Handcent can fix it with a new release. Any other suggestions?

    I agree, and I'm sure they will, and a lot faster than Moto will! That is the beauty of the Android OS and open source.

    I have handcent as the default. I had 2.1 upgraded to 2.2 today. No problems.

    I get a text, handcent pops up, also, notification on the bar, and if the screen turns off, the blue light comes on.

    What does your Handcent popup look like? Can you describe it the best way you can?

    Un-believable! That is what I was seeing, but I thought that was the stock sms program popping up. I thought that because when I tried typing in it, it wouldn't go landscape mode for me and it didn't show the full conversation either. Any idea why, when touching the white space to type, it 1) won't go landscape mode when turning the phone and 2) doesn't show the whole conversation (or at least the part the fits on the screen at once)? Thanks again for the reply.
