I got the hero with Android 1.5 and I want to change my default SMS application. My new application have a blacklist feature so I can ignore some messages. But when I receive a sms, both the default sms and my new sms application are giving a notification. is there a way to disable the default one?
I have the Hand cent SMS app and every time i get a text, i get 2 notifications..1 for stock app and 1 for Hand cent...how do i disable getting the notification for the stock app? i go to manage apps but i don't see an option in there..is there somewhere else that i don't know about?
New to the hero and i have a question. i have installed sms text to replace the hero app and now whenever a text comes in i get notification for both apps. how do i disable the hero text application? i don't really want to unistall it, just disable it. I'm getting the same thing with the voicemail program.
Perhaps I missed it but what happened to this app? I can still see it under settings>applications>manage applications. However, there is no shortcut icon for this app under my main menu of loaded apps. I don't guess it really matters, because I never used it, but was it removed in the MR update? I downloaded and have used Ringdroid and it works great for me, but I am curious as to what happened to the preloaded app?
Can anyone confirm or deny whether or not the MR update is coming pre-loaded on the new Hero's? Like if you bought you're Hero in the last few weeks and whether or not you had to do the MR update after you got it?

I started using Handcent's SMS to manage my phone's messages and I really like it. But now I want to disable the standard messaging app that was included with my Evo because I get two notifications, I'd like to just get handcent's SMS. So how do I disable HTC's messaging app so that I can use Handcent's SMS only?
I just purchased a Motorola Cliq XT and have a question about the desktop icon management. Specifically, I was wondering if there was a way to disable the vibrate when moving desktop icons to the trash, or around the desktop, or from the app list to the desktop, etc.
Is there a general guideline for application developers about when to disable haptic responses? I know there are ways to enable/disable long-press haptics, but if an application was created to use haptic feedback for other events are there guidelines that application developers should follow? For example, if the user was to go into Settings->Sound & display -> Haptic and set that to OFF, should all applications refer to this setting as a rule of thumb?
From and end user point of view, I would like to have global control of haptic feedback especially if I find it to be annoying. I have seen several postings in the android forums looking for a "global override" to haptic responses. Ultimately, I think it is a question of should each application provide a menu to enable/disable haptic support, or should this be more of a global Setting for the device.
I personally feel applications should refer to the global setting, but would like to get feedback from other developers about this. Reference postings I was referring to: http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-general-discussions/6812-hapti... http://androidforums.com/samsung-moment/13633-how-do-you-disable-vibr.
Hello everyone. Is there a feature or a check box that I am missing that allows you to turn off the little text labels beneath the application icons on the home screen? I'm kind of doubtful, but a search did not return an answer. It would certainly clean up the home screen. Plus a lot of labels are "cut off" due to length and that is just annoying.
I have Handcent SMS installed, but when I receive a text I get two alerts. The first is a dark grey popup box with the text in it. Then I get the Handcent alert. I am assuming the first popup is the default SMS app. How can I disable this?
I started using MixZing lately and it bothers me that when I try to use the music controls on my bluetooth headphones the stock music app takes over. Is there a way I can disable the stock app (or if I remove it altogether will that cause other problems?)
I am just waiting for an android phone to come to my country (Sweden). Just wondering something, when you get the phone, what apps are on it? I've used google to find something but without any luck. What are the default apps? Can I send MMS by default? Can I record video with it by default? The two most important extra features for me, doesn't matter if I need to get apps to do it, but kind of curious!
In the Messaging app in 2.2 when I'm in a thread it shows a pic of me and a pic of the other person next to every text sent and received. In the 2.1 app it simply showed my name and the other persons name; no pic of us next to every text. Is there anyway to disable showing the pics in the 2.2 app? Really don't see the need to have a pic next to each text.
