Any way to make screen light up when message comes in?

It's annoying that I can't set the screen to SHOW I have an incoming text message. Only the sound and the sporadic red light notify me. Any other way to change this?

Download "ChompSMS" from the market, It is a much better texting app then the stock one. In the "Menu>Settings>Notifications>(Check)Screen Comes On" IT also has settings in the "Quick Reply" are settings to have a pop up window for 1 minute to allow quick reply even when the phone is locked.

It has many more customizing options the stock one lacks.

If you download and decide to use Chomp, Go into the stock messaging app and turn off all the notifications so you don't get notified by both apps when a message comes in.

OK, this is how I get the display to come on. Go to settings & turn off the flashing LED light. Then tun the ringer volume to OFF & when you receive a message, the screen will illuminate.  I hope that helps.

Thank u very much for your response but it's crazy that this would be the only way. No volume in order for my screen to light up. I would've thought the screen lighting up would be essential as the LED is not very effective. Is there any way to get a more effective LED, perhaps more colors or more frequent flash?

Thank u very much Levi4u. This is what I was looking for. It functions great but the only downside I see is all the advertising. Still, thanks.

If you want to get rid of the adds, "Menu>Settings>Support Us" It is $4.95.

Handcent SMS is another app with similar quick reply feature.
