    How to disable notifications on samsung galaxy s?

    Recently i installed gingerbread 2.3.3 on my samsung galaxy s, and because i didn't like the default sms application i installed handcent sms. i disabled the notification icon for the default application, but even so, when i receive a sms, on the status bar appear 2 icons, one from handcent, and onether one, which is white and looks like in the picture and which says 'You have an unread sms."

    You might like to try GoSMS as well.

    Hmm, just looked at my stock messaging settings and disabling notifications should be all you need to do. I use Go Sms and have used handscent and had no problems with either. Wonder if it might be worth uninstalling handscent and reinstalling it and starting over. Can't think what else to suggest.

    Let us know if you manage to sort it.

    Cut a small piece of black electrical tape and put it over the icon you don't want to see.

    I even tried uninstalling handcent, and even reset to factory...even if the handcent icon doesn't appear, the white icon is still there, i don't think the icon is from the native sms program, because that icon is yellow and i disabled it...

    It must be the handscent icon then, there is an option in there to choose which icon you want, I had a little pink one (cos I'm a girlie) so it can be changed. Can't remember where in the settings you will find it but try notification settings. HOpe this helps.

    Right. I'm going to have to put on my sensible head, which I really don't like doing.

    When you get the two notification icons, if you pull down the notification bar, do these two icons have a section each, both giving info about the SMS?

    If so, what app opens when you select the one with the postcard icon?

    I believe the default icon for SMS in Gingerbread is still an envelope, not a postcard.

    so...the two icons have a section each...when i click on the postcard it opens the sms with the sms default program, not with handcent, but the postcard isn't the notification icon for the default sms application...

    Do you have Beautiful Widgets installed, if so have a look at that for notifications.

    EDIT: As in, I suspect it's Beautiful Widgets that is causing this notification...
