Bionic displaying texts while on standby

    So I just got the bionic today and the only problem I have with it so far is receiving text messages. When I hit the power button to turn the screen off (standby) and receive a text, it turns the screen on and displays the text along with the ability to quick reply. I have spent a good half hour trying to find the setting to turn this off. Does anyone know?

    mine doesn't do this. however, on my old phone i had handcent installed and it always did this. do you have handcent installed? if so, it's the handcent popup that wakes the phone.

    Welcome 1st poster :) Are you using a 3rd party sms app or sms pop up? Sounds like it as the stock sms app will not do this that I know of.

    Yes I'm using the Handcent app for texts. I had handcent on my previous droid and it never did it. Any ideas on how to turn this off?

    @Jbdan - Thank you for your welcome

    *edit* I appear to have fixed it. In handcent, go to settings> notification settings> and uncheck "enable popup"

    Ok, I'm going from memory here so hopefully I won't leave anything out. Open handcent, hit menu, go to notifications, and where it says enable popup, uncheck it.
