    im still having issues with the stock messaging app. now i dont get double notifications but whenever i receive a text message and my phone is in sleep mode the phone turns on and the stock messaging app comes up and displays my text. anyone know how i can stop the messaging app from picking up the messages. i have everything disabled in the stock app. its livable but getting tiresome. tia for the help

    update: it does the same thing while the phone is awake too (ie if im on the home screen stock messaging app still opens up and displays the text)

    This isn't the stock SMS. It is a feature in handcent called popup. Go into Handcent settings and unchecked popup.

    I noticed I was getting 2 message notification symbols in the status bar.
    A sms message symbol (envelope style) and the symbol I chose for handcent.
    I couldn't figure out how to remove the sms notification.
    I removed notifications from stock message app and handcent app.
    That was the only way to get 1 message symbol in bar. (sms message symbol (envelope style).
    I wish i could get rid of the sms notification and use the Handcent one with the style
    and color of my choosing.
    i keep missed call app for continued reminders when message is missed.

    any suggestions?

    This is the same problem I am having. It seems like it didn't start until I Upgraded to Ultimate Droid 9. Has anyone else experienced this? It seems like one notification is for the Handcent sms message (this is the icon I choose) and the other is a envelope style icon that acts like it is for the Handcent popup that appears when I get a message. Not sure how to go back to just one notification.
    PS: ALL notifications are turned off in the default messaging app. Both the icons appear to be for Handcent only.


    Well I finally figured out that my extra notification was comming from the app MissedCall. I feel stupid but anyway atleast
    the extra notification icon is gone.

    Ok I've been using handcent for a while now and no issues until today, when I tried to change my notification alert in handcent. All of a sudden I was getting double notified. Was pulling my hair out trying to figure out WTH happened. Read through the posts, tried all the recommendations, nothing worked. Then...realized/remembered I've also been using SPC (Super Private Conversation), which makes you disable notifications in your other messaging app...which I guess I had disabled a while ago but forgot. Once I disabled the notifications in handcent, problem disappeared.

    My point: it's probably another app that's causing your double notifications.
