I have had phones in the past that worked like this so this is why I am asking. My first Android phone. Thanks for any help!
Have any of you tried to root this phone yet? If so how has the experience been for ya.
I'm not sure I undertand the "text fades out on the icons."
That one's new to me.
Not possible to be changed on the default text messaging app. However, there are many alternatives that may have the solution for you.
Some alternatives are: Handcent SMS
and GO SMS Pro
Unfortunately, no the phone doesn't turn itself or the alarm off when it's shut down. I'm guessing you're coming from a Blackberry?
As far as rooting, here's a step by step guide
on the root section of the G2x.
