    Am I blind? Or is there a option I am not seeing to make the screen turn on when I receive a email or text?

    I get the notification just fine, but the phone doesn't light up along with it. Most phone screens light up when you get a text

    Check out"E-MAIL NOTIFIER"(free),in the the market.Not sure if it has what you want,but at
    the price,it's worth checking out.

    That will only light up the screen only with incoming emails, I really need one for texts. I found Text Notifier, but from the reviews, not worth the download. Maybe this will be fixed in 2.2

    Gonna look some more.On a similar subject,when I attempt to activate call waiting,I get a code is empty message,notify you carrier(Cricket).I've had this promlem before rooting,did'nt notice it 'til recently,just assumed it worked out of the box,since it is a listed feature with the$55/mo. Plan. Any similar problems with your call waiting?
    By the way, all forwarding does the same thing.Not a huge issue,being that I seldom use either function,but I would expect each of these to work out of the box.More likely than not, it's probably a Cricket issue,since yours works.Other than billing issues,I don't have the patience to deal with Cricket's wonderful 1-800 customer service department.

    I actually like my stock sms, Huawei failed by not adding that feature

    Im not sure but Huawei had no option. Even if they wanted to, they couldnt. Google js behind this for not adding that feature to Android 2.1

    Mine always does, at the same time it is playing "Mr Postman". LOL

    Hmmmm. I haven't downloaded any email or sms programs. And yet when I get an email message OR a phone call my screen lights up and plays the song I have it set to play.

    Sounds to me like something is wrong with your phone or that in removing certain stock apps you might have disabled the process.

    I only deleted bloatware

    1 Boingo Wifi
    2 MetroPCS Easy Wifi
    3 Games
    4 Online Banking
    5 Loopt
    6 Mocospace
    7 Documents to Go
    8 Virtual card
    9 Uno

    None of those would cause that issue.

    Seems Joser has the same issue.

    Did it ever light up for you, NY? Like as in 'before you rooted'?
  23. Jazziette

    Jazziette Well-Known Member

    I know I have changed the notification settings but I'm not sure now what I did. I have different ringtones for everthing just about.

    So maybe when these ringtones come on it causes the screen to light up.

    Last night when I was transferring files to my laptop from my phone the screen lit up and played a tune and made a beautiful musical alert sound I hadn't heard before.

    No, even my 1st Ascend didn't either. Are you SURE yours light up when you get a text?
  25. Jazziette

    Can you try adding ringtones as a notification of some contacts and then ask them to call you or call yourself from your land line and see if it lights up?
