    I just got my Droid X2 and as of the past 3 days I've had this 2nd text notification pop up and I can't get rid of it unless I clear the notification bar. I'm using handcent as my primary sms and I have turned off the native text program notifications as well. I have tried pulling the battery, doing a soft reboot and it keeps popping up whenever I receive a new message. It's not a problem for the phone but more of a nuisance for me. If anyone has any ideas please help, I'm desperate! Also, I'm using ADW as my home replacement.

    The notification bar should give you an idea of what app is sending the second notification (icon, maybe even a name) what app is it?

    That's the thing, its not giving me a name for the application and I've never seen the icon before. I've gone through all of the handcent icons and its not that. I've disabled every possible text notification besides handcent that I can think of as well. I'm at a loss.

    They both look like handcent to me.

    Un install handcent

    Get someone to text you

    I've un-installed it twice and I'm still getting the same icon pop up every time someone texts me. It's not handcent cause they don't have that icon to choose from.

    You either

    Didn't disable stock mortification

    Or

    Have another texting app installed.

    Other than that only thing you can do is do a factory reset and start from scratch.

    First off, watch the language...
    Secondly, before you do a factory reset have you tried wiping data and cache for the stock messaging app??

    Excuse the language, it's the frustration talking. And yes I have tried clearing the cache from the native program and still no luck. I'm stuck so I'm just going to reset it.

    I figured out the issue after wiping the phone and re-installing each program one by one. If you have Beautiful Widgets SMS pack, make sure to un-check the notification box in the settings. Sucks it had to take that much work but at least it got fixed.
