    Default If I disable stock messaging, will it hurt anything?

    I use Contacts+ for messaging and sometimes get double texts. If I disable the stock messaging, will that affect anything? Or is that a no no?

    Nope, not all all. I use Handcent, and have the stock messaging app disabled. Well, first I guess you'd better make sure Contacts+ will act as the default messaging app. Worst case, if there's a problem, you can re-enable the stock app.

    But do you really get double texts, or just double notifications? You can turn off notifications in the stock messaging app.
    PLEASE, when asking for help provide as much information as possible. We can't help unless we know what the symptoms are and what you did before they began.

    Well, I guess you're probably right. I'm getting double notified every time. I think I'll just disable it like you mentioned and see how that plays out. Thank you so much for the response.

    Or just switch off Notifications for the stock SMS App

    I use GoSMS and that is exactly what I did, just turned off notifications for the stock SMS app.
