    Now that I have downloaded Handcent SMS for text messaging, how do I get rid of the default android texting app that came with the phone. I can't find where to get rid of it on there.

    Thanks........

    If you are rooted you could just delete the Mms.apk file, however either way I hear this is a BAD idea. I have heard that some people have nasty issues after getting rid of the stock MMS app, maybe its ties into the system and killing it makes the droid unhappy.

    Still, I use handcent and I dont care that the stock one is there, it doesn't do anything anyway having it there...

    Just go into the stock messaging app and disable the notifications.

    Make certain you disable the notification in the notification bar as well.

    I dont think you want to totally delete it. You can't send pics with Handcent because it has a size limit For that you'd have to use the regular messaging app.

    How do you go about disabling the notification in the notification bar??? I was trying to figure it out trolling the forums and can't figure it out. Every text i get there is the stock mms notification and the handcent one. I thought i turned off all the notifications and then even removed the stock mms app hoping that would fix the issue. I was sorely mistaken.

    I would not suggest deleting even if you are rooted...I did with one of my previous roms and my messages would not stay saved. I'd receive a message and if I didn't read the notification it disappeared.

    How about an answer for me???? I have been unable to find an answer anywhere.... I have disabled all the settings including the notification setting in the stock mms app and even tried deleting the stock mms app and played with all the settings on handcent, but i still get double notifications in the notification bar on ALL txt's received... Am I the only one?? I'm about to wipe and clear cache and re-install and pray. If anyone else experienced this or knows how to fix it I would greatly appreciate it.

    Disabling it in the stock app should do it.

    Have you power cycled the Droid to see if it makes a difference at all?

    So I reached my boiling point and decided to find a solution since everything else i tried didn't work. I ended up backing everything up with titanium and a different program for calender and settings and all that good stuff. Went ahead and wiped/clear cache and re-flashed with BB 1.0Ghz Nextheme ROM. Issue has been resolved I no longer get dual notifications and I'm back to being a happy camper.
