    Disabling SMS app in LG Optimus U with Android OS and replacing with a third party app

    I have got a new third party SMS app for my LG Optimus U and it is really impressive. But the default SMS app still exists in the phone creating duplicate SMS issues. Some SMS works with default app and some other with the new app creating an overall mess. How can I get rid of the default SMS app and replace it with the third party app?

    There are two ways to disable sms app.
    If your phone is rooted then you use both the ways.
    If your phone is not rooted then you use only first method.
    1)for all phones
    1.go to settings.
    2.open apps.
    3.select "all" tab.
    4.now search 'messaging' app in list.
    5.tap on that app.
    6.tap on disable tab.
    7.your done........
    2) for only rooted phone.
    1.get app called 'titanium backup'.
    2.open that app.
    3.select messaging system app.
    4.now tap on app and select freeze option.
    5.to enable follow steps 2 to 4 select unfreeze instead
    6.your done.......
