Up until about 3 days ago, an incoming text in the standard messaging app would wake the phone and display the sender and message on the lock screen. It suddenly stopped waking the screen to show that preview, although it is there if I manually wake the phone.
Steps I have taken to try to fix this:
*Checked, unchecked, re-checked the "Notifcation Preview" settings for the messaging app.
*Checked the Privacy settings to be sure that all of the notification settings were correct.
*Restarted the phone several times, including removing the battery.
*Uninstalled the most recent app that I had put on just before it stopped working.
*Installed and uninstalled other messaging apps (Handcent, SMS Popup) to see if that would jolt the standard messaging app back to its senses.
*Did a factory data reset on the phone, which did not help even before I reloaded apps and settings.
I think that's it. Yes, I know that I could grab an app such as Handcent, SMS Popup, etc. to perform the same sort of thing. But that would mean that the phone wins. My dad got the same phone at the same time, and his works properly. Our settings, as far as we have observed, are identical. Does anyone have any suggestions to try? I'm not ready to give in, but I'm getting there.
