    I downloaded Handcent, how do I make it my default SMS program? Also, how do I move the icon to the main front screen?

    Open the app drawer and long press on the Handcent icon... this will add it to your home screen.

    I try that, but when I drop it, is seems to go right back into the drawer... is my home page too full or something?

    Got it, my front page was full. Moved some stuff off of there, and it worked.

    Now, how do I make it default to Handcent? Just turn off notifications for regular messaging?

    It might be. The Home screen is 4 spots top to bottom, by 4 spots side to side.
    You don't need to 'drop' the icon. Just press on it and hold, it should drop itself.

    Try it on another screen, or move an icon off the screen you're trying to put the Handcent icon to.

    And actually, you're better off doing this for Handcent... long press on the home screen you want the icon.... then select "widgets" and scroll down to 'Handcent'. The widget and the icon look exactly the same, however the widget will display an unread message count in a little green dot on the icon!
