It is possible to set it in Android 4.4 KitKat. But how can I set it in Android 4.2 Jelly Bean? After installing Tango I fell in this problem.

    Uninstall it, or go to Settings > Applications > Tango > Remove Defaults and then select a new default SMS and dialer appliction. There should be a setting in your SMS app but I have no idea what phone you have. You can aslo go into Hangouts settings and set it as default SMS.

Thanks all.

In Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, We should manage default app in same app we don't want it to handle SMS.

In Tango 3 settings, there is an option to avoid SMS handling.
