    I dont have too many cons about the Droid but this is one thats driving me nuts. When i receive a message or a notification the green light blinks and thats it. How, if any, can i when i receive messages or notifications and have the display turn on when i received them? Ive looked everywhere's and if anyone can help id appritiate it. Thanks

    I never thought about it, but you are right, the screen does not turn on when a message comes in. But I promise you are in the right place to get an answer. The people in this forum are awesome.

    Thats y i'm here. I got to the nissan forum's all the time and get alot of questions answered. I just wanna know when i have a message. If i'm driving with the music on in my car and get a message i dont know it till i look at it and see the blinking light. Just anal i guess.

    I used to have a Maxima. :) I still spend a little time over at maxima.org. Back to your question, the app Handcent lets you choose pop up notifications, and it will turn your screen on. That's just for text messages, but it might help.

    I'm going to continue the trend of this thread by not answering your question... because I don't know the answer...

    But I will jump in and ask a question of my own...

    I'm using Handcent SMS and when I receive an SMS, I get a notification in the top left corner of the screen and I also get a notification for the standard Messaging app. Even after I open the notification bar and click on the Message, the icon for the standard app won't go away.

    Will I mess anything up by uninstalling the standard messaging app?

    You can't uninstall the standard message app. Just go in and disable notifications for it.
