Question [Q] Hangouts and stock sms app problem

I'm using Google Hangouts to receive my sms and mms texts. However, I'm still receiving double message and notofocations as my stock sms app is also receiving the sms. How do I disable this so I only receive this through Google Hangouts?

Thanks for the Info, but I have read in other Forum that the users have problem with this solution, for Example the user can not send an mms. If I disable under the settings the stock sms app, then can I send sms and mms too?

The message will still show up in message app. Go to application manager find stock messaging and disable the notifications for it. And you're sorted

Thanks for the Info, If I understand you correctly, I should turn off only the notification (and not disable the stock sms app) in the stock sms app.
If I delete one of the message in the stock message app, than it will be deleted too in Hangouts?
