    I am pretty sure when I got my first few texts with handcent the screen lit up, but now it stays black when receiving a text. Is that how it is supposed to be?

    Does your screen light up when you get a text?

    I know with the default messaging app, the screen does not light up. Once I install ChompSMS I'll let you know if it lights up. I rather like the default app though, so I might not switch.

    For Handcent:

    Go to Settings, Notification Settings, Pop-up settings: check "Screen on for popup".

    Works consistently for me.

    Have you rebooted your phone?

    On my Fascinate, there is no "Notification Settings" option at all, NADA.
    Does not exist.... wish it was there, I would also like for it to light up with a text message w/o having to add on another app.

    Then you're not using Handcent.
    P.S. Handcent is much nicer than the stock app and free.
