    I did this but I notice that even though I do not receive the native pop up my in box is still full if I click onto the messages widget is there a way to turn off the native text totally?

    No you just remove all original messaging widgets and shortcuts. It will still populate new texts, but as long as you turned off notifications it should be fine.

    Won't all the messages stored under the stock message icon cause a lag in my phone eventually?

    That's an important question. When you delete from Handcent, does it delete from the phone?

    I really wanted to like HandCent but it seemed to cause problems on my phone--so I uninstalled it.

    What would happen is: I would receive an SMS message, HandCent would display a pop up (over the locked screen, btw), I would delete the message from that pop up; but later, when I unlocked my phone, the message would still be present in the notification area; then I would mistakenly try to open the message with the native messaging client but it would then freeze--presumably because it was trying to display a now deleted and non-existent message. I didn't see an obvious way to kill the messaging client task...and I wondered it if would cause my phone to become unstable.

    Has anyone else experienced this?

    Bump. So, I followed everyone's directions and turned off notifications, but I still get audio notifications for both apps. Additionally, I also still get the stock SMS pop up when I get new texts, and I don't get anything from Handcent. Is there any way for me to fix these issues?

    I have the same issues. When I receive a text I get 2 notifications. One from the phone and the other from Handcent. I'd lke to not get the H notification and I turn it off, but I still get it. Two notifications are annoying.

    I'm running the 8/31 froyo leak. I put Handcent on when I was on 2.1 and have had no problems since. I go into the stock messages app > menu > settings > "Received notifications" [uncheck]. I don't get any notifications from the stock app. I also unchecked the "Sent notification" in this menu.

    As for "duplicating" messages, I'm not an android developer, but I'm going to say I'm 99.9% sure the Android OS pulls in the messages once and whatever app you are using just displays them. The stock app and handcent don't each have a copy of the message. The OS has one copy and the apps can read these.

    If don't want he Handcent notifications for some reason, open the app, menu > Settings > Notification settings > Notifications [uncheck]

    You should be able to set them separately. The key is to go into the app that you want to set the sound for and then hit menu-->settings and look for notification.

    I just checked on my Dinc and I can set the text notification to one sound and the gmail to another. Hope this helps.

    Like he said, go into both app's settings and set the notifications separately. Exit each app's settings page properly.

    Don't use the phone's notifications setting. Works for me.

    I've been using handcent for a couple weeks now and I love it. You really have to take your time with the settings to get them right in order to avoid what your experiencing.

    Default no popup?

    I'm not a big text person ....however when I receive one it is important. i have turned off stock notification and turned on handset. when I first got the phone i would get 2 pop ups....now i get none . Is it possible I changed a default message setting on which app to use. The message shows up in handset but no sound or pop-up. The stock app notification sound works when enabled ....but I don't get the pop-up .
    I have also tried downloading sms pop-up...to work with stock but it didn't work either ..

    Any help would be appreciated.
