    I just started using Handcent, I'm just trying to change some things up, the stock SMS got boring lol

    Is there a way for it to stop notifying me for Hancent and stock? My phone vibrates 4 times and the stock app keeps saying I have messages. I even put Handcent as my default and it didn't work.

    go into the stock messaging app and disable 'auto-retrieve' and the notifications settings.

    Go into the stock app, and go to the settings, and disable notifications.

    Is it a separate app?

    No, I don't think so. I am on the Handcent text menu (with all my conversations) then menu key, settings, Handcent services, then I scroll down to Handcent themes....

    My understanding is if you disable "auto retrieve" you wont get your mms. Now I could be wrong.

    I don't use mms so I'm not sure I am correct with my previous statement but thought I read it somewhere. Have you tested by unchecking "auto retrieve" and see if you still get them?

    Yes, it asks me if I want to view it, then it gives me two options, view now or view later.
