    As far as I know if you remove the stock messaging app the others won't work anymore. Just turn off notifications and forget about it.

    You can test it by renaming it .bak instead of .apk with root explorer and see if the others still work though.

    I've removed the stock messaging app and still received SMS texts through Handcent, but had problems with MMS texts. So now I keep the stock one and just disable notifications.
