    Screen Flashes On When I Receive SMS...

    Ok heres the problem

    I downloaded and installed a few (like 9) apps last night before going to bed. Now today when I get text messages my phone's screen lights up for a quick second then goes back off. I dont think its really a problem but its quite annoying

    I would delete all of the apps but I customized them and it would take quite a while to go thru all of that. I was just seeing if anyone had this problem before and any quick fixes.

    Also, none of the apps were like brand new. Most of them had many downloads on it already.

    I just dont see why its doing this.

    Gee you might has well been more vague and not mentioned how many apps you downloaded. But since you decided to let the psycics among us solve your problems one could logically conclude that perhaps it was an app that deals with SMS

    Okay sorry I was assuming someone else out there downloaded that one app and started to have it happen to them they could tell me what went wrong

    Ok I downloaded
    dolphin browser
    mybackup
    tunewiki
    draw
    wallpapers
    yellowbook

    but i didnt think it could help. I deleted one that was the SMS backup (where it backs your texts on gmail) bc i thought that was the problem but it didnt fix it.

    Hmm can't ser those apps causing that. Do you have handcent or any other sms related apps. As far as I know the Droid doesn't do that natively

    Excuse me for asking, but did you really DELETE the hansent app or did you just put the icon shortcut in the trash? If you did the latter, then the handcent app could still be on the Droid and functioning. This app can have a popup on the screen when a new message is received.

    No I actually went to applications and uninstalled it to see if it would fix the problem. and it didnt.
