    I'm at wits' end. It drives me nuts that I have to press the wake key then swipe across to unlock then swipe down to bring down the notification bar just to see what the new notifications are. There has to be a way to display the notifications on the lock screen (new email/txts), right? I've searched and searched and haven't found the answer. Please help.

    I'm not too sure if this is the right ap for you but I use SMS popup and it overrides the wake and lock when receiving incoming texts and notifications.

    uhhhh... 10 minutes ago I got a notification on my FB.... Pressed reply to reply without touching the wake key and swiping.

    Hold on. I sent an email from my hotmail address to my gmail. Lets see if it works.


    Texts wake my phone automatically... all 101 of them since Saturday on sms popup.

    i agree. i hate having to wake the phone up to do those. i understand the purpose, but you should be able to override the phone swipe w/ it. You couldnt do that w/ the iphone, either though. the nice thing about the iphone (i say this a lot, but im not saying the droid is bad, cuz i like it just as much) was the home button on the bottom. its easier to press and you can do it quick and easy in damn near one motion (click button swipe w/ thumb to open)

    Handcent SMS is the program you're looking for. Displays SMS popups with the lock screen on. One of those programs you shouldnt get caught without.

    SMS Popup wakes the phone...


    Meaning, you don't need to unlock it first....

    Ok.. so here's the deal with SMS popup. Texts wake the screen. FB notifications wake the screen. All email notifications will use the settings but not wake screen.

    Hopefully there's an ap that'll allow that soon.. or if there is one... let us know guys... thanks

    Handcent does everything SMS Popup does, but adds so much more. I love the quicktext feature, since i never use the camera button. Plus you can customize different notification tones, you can reply back on the notification without opening up another program.

    The list goes on and on.

    excellent APP...One of the beauty's of it also is that it works as a "native" app not to mention the HUGE inventory list of customizations..

    Best SMS/MMS app I think
