    Is there any option to allow the display to turn on when any type of notification (email, txt, voicemail, etc..) is received? I hear beeps and see the LED light, but would like the display to actually come on to show the lock screen.

    Thanks,
    Kizer

    Not sure about settings on the G2 itself, but you can configure lightflow to turn the screen on when notifications are received.

    kizer8: In addition to LightFlow - it appears an app "Screen Notifications" can do it as well.

    I use lightflow but sometimes the notification light still blinks after the message has been read.

    I've tried to use LightFlow for Hangouts but it doesn't work, the LED light won't blink.

    Hmmm... Light Flow works with my Hangouts. Generally, Light Flow is all or none for me -- it either works with everything or it doesn't. I read elsewhere that Hangout's native notifications blink very slowly (like for WhatsApp, if you use that), so slowly that sometimes it is taken that the notification isn't working. My only suggestion is to ensure Hangouts' native notifications are on but sound/vibrate disabled; so that Light Flow can handle your LED, sound and vibrate. I believe the notification has to be on in Hangouts in order for Light Flow to react to it.
