Handcent issue?

You need to turn notifications off in the STOCK messaging app.

I still have the little sms icon and such telling me I have messages to check. Is this normal because it's a pain in the butt to go to messages every time I want it to go away even though I've been having conversations via handsent. :\
It's normal if you don't disable notifications in the stock app. Notification settings for your apps are within the apps themselves. Installing another app doesn't disable notifications for an existing app.
