    Is there any way of making the screen light up when I get a text message? I oftentimes keep my phone on silent on my desk at work, but would like the screen to light up and show me there's a new text instead of just the notification light. Does anybody know a way of doing this?

    I'm using a regular Droid.

    Handcent has a setting to make the screen come on with a pop up when you get a text. There is also an app called sms popup. I think it will do the same thing, but I haven't actually tried it.

    Thanks, Handcent does exactly what I wanted. Now to remember how to turn off the stock messaging app.

    open the stock messaging app then hit menu go into settings and uncheck "notifications" its the 3rd from the bottom

    this will prevent you from getting double notifications for every message.
