    i had an lg enlighten droid and whenever a new text came in there'd be a little red 1 on the envelop icon on my home screen. but nothing shows up on my droid 3. so if i get a text and dont hear the beep, i have no way of knowing a new text came in. is there a way to fix this? tia!

    A new text should show up in the notification bar with a little icon in the upper left hand corner.

    You can always download "SMS Popup" if the icon in the notification bar and flashing green light aren't doing it for you ;)

    SMS Unread Count will let you add a widget that shows the number of unread SMS.

    I believe that either ChompSMS or Handcent allow you to add the little red pop up to the icon on your home screen.

    Handcent will give you a pop up box of the text on your homescreen. It's in the settings.

    If you are open to using a different home, you can get Launcher Pro, which has the option to show Missed Call, New Text, and New Email counts on your dock
