    I just downloaded Handcent SMS and now when receiving texts, two are displayed
    in my notification bar. Is there any way to stop this? Thanks!

    I did the same thing at first too. Just go into your normal message folder and go to settings and unchecked your box for show messages at notification bar. Handcent is a very nice, highly customizable app. I had to power off to get rid of the notification that was already read though. I still can't get over how fast the Droid boots up. LOL

    RANDOM MESSAGE REPEATS:

    did anyone notice that with handcent an ALREADY msg will pop again along with a NEW incoming msg, slightly annoying because it makes you think that person is re-sending msgs. Anyone know a fix to this?

    thanks

    Its in the settings of your default sms, turn off the notification and you'll stop receiving two messages.

    1) Open up "Messaging" app
    2) Click the Menu button
    3) Click Settings
    4) Scroll down to the "Notification Settings" section and uncheck the "Display message notifications in status bar"

    Are there themes for this App? I love the customization but im just not that artistic, id love for there to be some pre-sets to choose from!

    They're not really themes per say, but it does show you some good customizations you can do with Handcent.

    only slightly off-topic, but I received an MMS from my girlfriend last night and I got a blank message bubble in Handcent. when I went to the built-in Messaging, there was the picture. any ideas? really like Handcent and would hate to go back to the vanilla app.

    Are you using the latest version? What device do you have? How are your MMS receive settings configured in Handcent?

    I'm using the latest version on my Verizon Moto Droid with no retrive settings checked and I'm receiving MMS just fine. I'm not even sure why those settings are in there since it seems to work without them.

    yeah, I'm using the latest version on a Droid as well and I've received MMS in the past no problem. This seems to be an isolated incident. I updated yesterday to 2.9.26 and thought maybe it had produced a new bug.

    Open Handcent, go to settings, scroll down and uncheck Enable Popup.

    If you get the message twice in your top notification bar you need to open the stock messaging app / menu / settings / notifications should be unchecked

    If you mean double sounds (ringtones) Disable the stock app notification... from home screen / menu / settings / sound and display / notification ringtone (notification is the sound it makes when you recieve a text message) / scroll to the top and select "silent"

    note: if the selection for "notification ringtone" is greyed out and unavailaible, that means you're currently in vibrate only or silent mode and the option is unavailable - press the volume up button on the volume rocker bar and the option will become available.

    sorry, i should have been more clear. i just receieve one notfication, but the message shows up twice when i open handcent. as if the sender sent it twice, but like i said, i will only get 1 notification, and even the handcent widget displays 1, and then i open it, and 2 of the same message are displayed. weird.

    Hi,

    Using this app for a while and I don't know how to stop it from recording delivery reports. I keep having to go in and clear them, as well as recent recipients. I don't want this information recorded!

    Any ideas?
