You can't remove the original app. All you need to do is go to your settings on your old SMS and set it for unclick notification of SMS.

You don't have to remove the stock program, you can just disable it's notifications in it's option menu.

That's what I did.

Messaging > Settings > Notification and remove the check mark.

The messages will show in both apps but Handcent will be the only one notifying you. But if you don't access the default app you won't start the service so it won't effect your memory, etc.
