    Meaning i still had to open android mms to clear it out.
    Is there an option in the stock mms to disable notifications?
    Then you can choose the settings in handcent to only notify you.
    This problem is most common when having two mms apps installed.

    NOTE:
    *From experience with other ROMS*
    You should not uninstall the stock mms. Handcent uses it to send and
    receive picture messaging.

    Yea that setting is in there, that does nothing for making the message count on the lock screen work with Handcent. This just allows so you don't get 2 notifications that you get an MMS message.

    The counter issue is with this ROM only, any other ROM used the counter works for either Handcent or the stock MMS application.

    Hi stopped using handcent when I started using this rom. The only thing that handcent has that the stock app doesn't is the customization. Stock app has been moded to have the pop up notification and it works with the lock screen.

    get all super techy and go in and mod the framework apk. i changed a few things in mine n it looks pretty sweet couldnt tell u if taking out the phone and mms icons all together would fix it but it wouldnt hurt to try..well maybe if u dont know what u r doing so make a back up b4 you mess w/ it better yet make a back up copy of the actual zip file u use to install the rom and mod a different one so u can go back if u need to

    All right ill do that. The thought had passed my mind but i thought that would be too easy. lol

    I hear ya. I actually like that if you hold the sms option that it shows you the last few unread messages though.

    I didnt know it did the popup that was one of my main reasons for using handcent.
