Hello Droiders, I've read through previous posts regarding the Handcent and Stock messaging solution and it hasn't worked for me yet. Issue: Both the applications receive text on my HTC Incredible S phone. I've unchecked all notifications under the stock message application. I've unchecked auto retrieve under the stock message application. Handcent has been set the default application ( Under Handcent settings ) Restarted the phone. But I still receive texts under the stock messaging application. I do not receive 2 different notifications. But when i open my stock messaging application it does have the new newly arrived text. I do understand that there is just one database file and handcent is just a client accessing it. Shouldn't unchecking the setting " auto retrieve " under the stock messaging application fix the problem ? Your inputs will be appreciated. Thanks.
