    You can delete it off your homescreen but I don't think you can uninstall it. I can't check right now cause my phone is updating.

    I'm having an issue with handcent. Sometimes my notification tone doesn't play when I get a text message. It's really annoying.

    Ok, maybe I can just adjust notification settings. Currently I am getting duplicate, one from stock app and one from handcent.

    go in to the stock SMS app and disable notifications - that will stop the duplicates

    i like handcent because you can change the led colors when its working,i like the different fonts,sizes,backgrounds for bubbles and wall paper,font and bubble colors man the custom options are endless and the stock app is boring and you cant customize anything on it!

    some phone can customize the led like my moto droid, but i could never get to work on incredible
    It is but it still doesnt fix the LED problem. The problem being LED customization doesnt work.

    I still haven't been able to set leds for any thing. Is there a setting for leds in the menu?

    there is not a setting for led's in the stock software ,only app's that have it can do it like handcent if you open it up and go to settings,notification settings scroll down you will see the section for the led you can pick the color and speed for text/mms but not seperate they will be the same color and this does not change the one for your email either,you can also download missed call from the market it will give you led options for missed calls that andriod os does not have built in hope this helps.

    BUT LED customization isnt working on the Droidx with the current release of 3.2. I do know the developer is aware of it and is working on a fix.

    Yea my LED option works too. I wanted to use orange but the orange led doesn't really look orange so cyan it is.

    My LED is blue now thanks to the Handcent update. Required a reboot to work though.

    It was never grayed out, it simply didnt work. Right now I have a contact set to cyan and it lights up blue. Furthermore if you go to Handcent sms HomePage --sms plus software for android and go to the forums you will see it is an ongoing issue and the dev is working on it.

    Try SMS PopUp, the LED notifications work for individual contacts and the popup screen uses larger pictures (but doesn't have as many options) just be to go into the stock SMS app and disable notifications, otherwise you will get duplicates.

    sms popup resends random messages on the phone reboot so I wouldn't necessarily move to that yet.

    Go into handcent then hit menu- settings- send message settings- shortcut key to send. Then you cand change it to use enter if you want.

    Go into the default text messaging application and disable those notifications and you'll only get one (handcent's).
