    Default Handcent vs default messaging notifications

    I'm speaking specifically about the text notification that pops up on the unlock screen that you can drag the message icon to directly open the text within the default messaging app.

    Anyway, is it possible to set this option to open the text within the handcent app instead of the default messaging app?

    i dont use handcent but im just guessing if u go to settings, app manager, ALL, messanger, clear defaults... then the next time u tap on the popup, it should ask u what app it wants to use and u could check the box and tap handcent? thats a complete guess though but worth a try

    Thanks for the thought but it didn't work. Still just opening the default messaging app.

    Within the application manager - all - messaging app the "disable" option is grayed so it won't allow me to disable it.

    However, I can go into the messaging app settings and disable "notifications" but when I do I don't get the swipeable message icon to pop up on my unlock screen when i receive a text.

    Open Handcent click application settings. Default messenger. Set it as all (sms & mms). This might do the charm although I haven't used the stock lock screen since the first day I got it.

    actualy that thing ur getting on lock screen must be part of the stock app so disabling it wouldnt help. theres another thread on here about getting repliable sms pop-ups on your lock screen though so u should check that out man

    Yeah I thought so. I'm not sure though. I haven't disabled mine but I wonder if it could save more battery and memory since the phone wouldn't be saving messages and getting the message in two different apps.

    when i first got ICS, way before i had the s3, i disabled every stock app i didnt use and i have a feeling Go Sms wouldnt work with stock Messages disabled and thats maybe why i havent disabled it on the s3
