    I am getting double messages in my notification. One from handcent and one from the native messenger. How do I get just one. I made handcent the default but I still get double notifications ?!?!?
    Any help would be cool.

    SETTINGS

    it's in there

    Yes there is. He is talking about the "stock" messenger. Not Handcent.

    You obviously did something wrong. Try again. Handcent is worth it.

    Handcent double messge problem

    Hey everyone...

    So, lately, this problem has been happening more and more and it's really starting to bug me. I use Handcent as my primary Message app, but many times when I receive a message, I got two copies of an individual message. Now, I'm not talking about 1 notification from Handcent and 1 from the native Messaging app. I get two separate copies of many messages I receive (and, on top of that, two notifications from Handcent).

    Does anyone else have this problem? Any suggestions?

    Make sure the Messaging app has its notifications disabled, and yes like mentioned use the search :D

    There are multiple threads over this topic

    I hate reading posts like this one....in the amount of time it took to type it the answer could have been given......Look, the user has 2 posts. YES 2!! I think he is NEW you think?

    Anyway, Uninstall handcent and reinstall it. Problem solved. Takes 2 minutes.

    We were all new at one point......don't forget that......also some people are not as well versed about the droid yet and are gathering valuable information anyway they can. There are users out there that would like a detailed user manual....but for some reason motorola did not provide that and the downloadable manual off the net is very generic.

    Anyway, welcome to the forum OP

    thanks Huskur for your help.

    and just for reference, if the other two posters would have taken the time to actually read the thread, they would have seen that I was NOT referring to getting 1 notification from Handcent and 1 from the native Messaging app. I've done plenty of searches through the forum and that is the only problem I see people having. As mine seemed unique from the 20+ posts that I've found, I posted.
