    So im new to all this forum posting stuff but ive had my droid for awhile and love it. I use Handcent SMS for texting and stuff, and its an awesome app. Because i use that, i have the stock sms app notifications turned off...

    however...

    everytime i get a message (even if it isnt in handcent, i also tried using Super-private conversation and its still popping up), i get a notification that looks like a black outlined envelope/postcard thingy, a stock notification icon. it tells me that i have blank amount of unread messages, sometimes it will even say i have no unread messages, and when i click on it it takes me to the stock android app. But im also getting a notification from handcent so i know it isnt handcents fault..

    ive tried checking everything and everywhere, the stock sms app has notifications off, handcent has it on a different icon.. ive tried uninstalling and reinstalling apps, i cant f**king find the culprit.

    its really annoying and im posting on here to see if someone could help. and the thing that sucks is i dont remember what app i had downloaded that caused this because it wasnt always happening.

    the reason i think its another app causing this is because its notifying me from other messaging apps (spc), not just handcent. and it also hasnt been happening since i first got the phone.

    i also thought it would have been ADW because i use that, but i also have used widgetlocker and launcherpro and uninstalled both of those and it didnt go away :mad: :angry:

    any help would do, :D thanks.

    Have you got notification on the stock app turned off? It's weird and you're probably right it's app related.

    Have you tried deleting handcent and reinstalling?

    I get that when I get an email from my Verizon account. Is there a tone sound when it arrives?
    What you may end up having to do is check the settings in every messaging type app you have. Whoisit on my phone is a ringtone manager but one option is notifications in the upper bar
    Hope that helps

    It has been a while since I've used the stock Messaging app but I don't recall its notification icons looking like that.
