    When I get a text (Droid3) I have to hit power switch, slide the screen, go to home page and tap TEXT MESSAGES .. then see a list of people and select the person that sent me a text.

    Any other way to see that text message. I get dozens a day and that is getting real old.

    My env3 I just opened it and read it !!!

    help!!!!!!

    Hit the power button, slide the lock and then slide the notification bar down. You should see a note about the message there. If you touch it, it will open to the message. If you get Go SMS, I think you can set it up to turn the screen on when you get a message. It also comes configured to show the message in a pop-up.

    I'm not sure about the D3, I don't have one, but you should be able to pull down the notification bar and select the text message from there.

    Either when you unlock it, just slide the notification bar down, or;

    Download Widget Locker
    Then apply an SMS widget to your lock screen and you can reply right from there. Example:

    Handcent can also be configured where it will wake your phone upon receiving a new message and allow you to reply right from there. If you're texting a lot during the day, this can be very helpful.
