Double text with Handcent SMS...

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.

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"

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.

I've got this app but I'm still getting 100% up time. I've got auto-retreave turned off as well as notifications. What am I doing wrong?
