    Reading SMS quickly from locked phone

    I recently switched from the iPhone to Android (Bionic) and am generally quite happy. However, one thing I find severely lacking is that I have to unlock my phone in order to read an incoming SMS message.

    On the iPhone all I needed to do was turn the phone on.

    On the android I need to:
    - turn the phone on
    - slide the unlock slider
    - type in my password
    - pull down on the notifications bar

    This is a significantly worse user experience.

    Am I missing something or is there a way to get to an incoming text message in a more efficient way?

    Thanks for your thoughts!

    While I understand its "worse" you do have a lock on the phone to prevent information from being easily transferred. You can use Handcent which has a screen wake and text box pop up.

    Also, WidgetLocker (in market) will allow certain apps on the lockscreen to be viewable.

    Handscent will fix your problem.
