    Okay I hope this is the proper thread. But I just dowloaded handcent and I am enjoying it. But the x still counts the texts and so I get dual notifications. I would like to just have the handcent notifications. Is there any way to disable the stock stuff? I am rooted but running stock ROM since I am still learning. If anyone can help that would be a bottle of awesome sauce. Thanks in advance!

    I'm not sure but I would think that each app would count independently of each other.

    BTW - if you use a different email app you should silence the stock app's notifications :)

    Gosh, I do not believe I sent anywhere near 5500. And that is over several years!

    Upper screen status? That can be turned off in handcent settings,popup, if memory serves.
    It can also be reset to 0 when you want it to. I've got mine set to delete once a month

    Does anyone know if there is an option to sort the message list in handcent by new messages? It used to do this before 2.2 andnow my new messages are all over the place and its really annoying. The Incredible's update to 2.2 didn't cause this issue so is it a droid x issue or handcent? Any suggestions creamy appreciated. Thanks in advance

    I have a Droid. When I open Handcent, my most recent message is always displayed at the top. I could not find a setting so it must be the default. Sorry I could not be more helpful.

    I don't get it why mine does it, even the stock messaging app is doing it. I have uninstalled handcent and reinstalled and still does it. I put everything I could find back to default by resetting things, and still no luck. Very frustrating to have to go searching through the messages to find the most recent. It keeps the last text I sent on top.... really set up in a stupid way and I wish I could figure out why and how it got like this....

    Thanks for that link. I did find a similar thread on moto's support forums and did as they suggested and downloaded SMS TimeFix - so far seems to be working properly.... sad that a third party app needs to be downloaded in order to fix something that the manufacturer missed..... At least they are attempting to fix it... hopefully it won't take them months.... For now, Thank you SMS TimeFix!!!
