    No, there isn't.

    However, I find that Handcent SMS is a much better application and it allows you to have your screen light up and a "pop-up" appear with the message and you can reply directly from that pop-up as well (without having to unlock your phone).

    It even has Trackball Colors for Froyo on the N1. :D

    doubtfull and you would wake the phone every time you would do it.. additional battery drain.

    SMS Popup will accomplish this. It provides the same functionality that Talderon mentions...it will wake the screen and show a pop-up with the text. This can be used in conjunction with the stock messaging app.

    I am thinking about adding a feature to my app that will light the screen up for 5 seconds and then it will turn back off. I will post again when I have finished the update and posted to the android market.

    I just published an app on the market for that exact purpose. It's called SMS WakeUp, and it does exactly what you want, no more, no less.

    You can get it here: https://market.android.com/details?id=com.dberm22.SMSWakeUp

    You, sir, are amazing. I am also a recent iPhone converter and was upset about this. This app is amazing! Thank you very much!
