    Go to the settings of Messaging and go down to the bottom and disable notifications.

    I too have been wondering about the same thing. I've looked but cannot find anything. Has anyone found a way to disable the default sms notifications?

    If you use Google Voice keep in mind Handcent cannot sent with it. It can receive from it.

    But when you reply it will be sending via your normal SMS and not Google Voice's Free one.

    >.> I wish I knew that before I went Text crazy.

    It goes to a new message screen and if I hit back it goes to Handcent... Is this because Im sending a message to myself?

    Yea me either... In the notification bar it looks like the 2nd Handcent style notification icon (the little envelope) and when I open it up in the tray it looks like an opened white envelope.

    This is how it reads
