    Text message alert?

    Hey everybody, this is my first post so I'm not sure if this is the right spot to post this or not, but I hope so. Also if it's an obvious answer, I'm sorry. I just got my Droid Incredible today and have yet to begun my deep exploration of the phone.

    But right off the bat, I've noticed a huge difference in the text messaging between the Incredible and the other phones I've had. With other phones when you receive a new text, the whole screen turns into a notification, but on the Incredible, it only makes a noise and put the message icon at the top. Now, call me dumb or unaware, but I'm gonna keep forgetting to look for the icon just in case I don't hear/feel my phone. Is there a way to get a more apparant "new message" alert? Thanks!

    Look for handcent for a complete sms replacement with popups, otherwise search the market for "sms popup" for standalone popups. Welcome to the Droid family.

    I actually have some questions now concerning handcent lol. I definitely like it over the regular "messages" approach, but now whenever I get a message, both programs send me updates.

    Is there a way to get rid of the original messages thing or replace it completely with handcent? If not, can other handcent users possibly describe their texting set-up to me so maybe I can make my texting a little easier? lol Thanks everybody.

    If you are getting duplicate notifications, you need to go back into the stock app, hit menu and settings and go to notifications to turn them off.

    Personally, I love the ability to customize the vibration pattern for people and change the background, no accidental texting things to the wife lol

    What's wrong with the stock messages app that comes on the phone? I've had no problems with it.
