any other suggestion will lead you with that, if you have handcent you have to open the regular Messaging app -> MENU -> uncheck notifications and you will only get Handcent notifications
you will get the message notification on the lock screen, you can't change that, well you can, but
1) you have to root your phone
2) install titanium backup
3) delete an specific app that will stop this notifications on the lock screen
you can use another lock screen

FrontierGate's post is correct.
As for number 3, it's not possible to add it as 'Birthday'. You can add it under 'Other' though so the info at least is there if you need this info saved in the contact.

I am having new problem with my Arc from last 2 days.. whenever I get any call, my ringtone volume varies.. It constantly goes up and down.. I am not getting why I am facing this problem ???

Have you tried to change the ringtone to a different one? Please do if you have not already. Also, try to restart the phone and adjust the volume (up or down doesn't matter, just do something on this).

Ok.. I'll check that.. and one more thing I want to know.. Previously when my OS was Android 2.3.2, I used to get a sound whenver I used to lock the screen. but since when I have upgraded it to 2.3.4, I am not able to hear any such sound? why this so?

Changes like this are quite normal and this is something that was removed with a newer software. Can't tell the exact reason for it though.

You can certainly get the phone to make a sound when you unlock the screen, if that helps. Press the menu key, then Settings - Sound - Screen lock sounds.
