    Are there any app that make it more obvious when you have a txt for this particular phone? My girlfriend has found a few which make the 'LED' flash but they don't appear to work. As of now, she has to bring the screen on, then unlock it only to see a tiny icon in the corner. Isn't there something that rings up like '1 NEW MESSAGE' in a box whilst she's on the unlock screen?

    Thanks for any help!

    * Moved to Samsung Galaxy Ace forum*

    If you find a notification widget that you (or your girlfriend) like, you can try WidgetLocker to place the widget on your lockscreen for immediate notifications.

    Yeah GO sms pro does all this. You can set it to notify you as many times as you want that you have an unread sms,you can use notification sounds and led flashing.
    Only thing is I'm not sure you can use it as a stand alone app without the GO launcher.
    Worth a try though.

    Try SMS Popup from author everythingandroid.net. You can download it for free from the Android Market. When you get an SMS, it pops it up on the screen even if it's off, much like iPhone does. Underneath the message there are three buttons: reply, delete, and close.

    The only bug I have found is that closing the message does not remove the normal little envelope that you get in the top left corner, you have to enter the Messages screen and possibly open a message for it to go away. A minor annoyance for otherwise great functionality.

    I do not (yet) own this phone but I don't seem to understand... Normally with Samsung if you get a text, you hear a tune and/or vibration of the phone? And you normally should be able to use a "periodic notification" system. With my old Samsung this means that every 2 minutes my phone vibrates if i have an unread message...

    I suppose and actually hope this is still able with the modern Galaxy-brand? Is very useful to me :p
