    I have the Hero from Sprint.
    I love love love my phone.
    I enjoy the sense ui very much.

    I have a slight problem.
    I might be over looking this.
    I'm currently using Hancent.
    I use Hancent because of it's native ability to save multimedia.

    The problem is... (and this started about 2 days ago)
    My screen will light up for less then a second right before I receive a txt message.
    it's really annoying.
    I check the settings in Hancent and the default Messages app.
    All my settings are the same.

    Any suggestions are welcome.

    Android is awesome!
    Cant wait for Flan!

    Uninstall Handcent and see if this stops. If it doesn't, then it is something else. I am using the stock app with no problems since the update.

    I tried uninstalling the app, but still no luck.
    My thinking is to do a factory reset.

    The same thing is happening to me. I am using chomp and right before I recieve a text my screen lights up for about half a second and then goes black again before lighting up once again to notify me of the new message (i have it set to do that through chomp). It doesn't bother me enough to do a hard reset though.

    mine use to do the same thing, but about 5 seconds before it was going to sleep, not before I was going to receive a message. Not sure if it still does after the hard reset.

    Did you just uninstall or did you uninstall AND power cycle?

    Well I did a hard reset and still no luck.
    I triple checked my settings and they are fine.
    I think it may have to do with the latest update.
    I'll have to put up with it till the next update I guess.
    It's so annoying.

    Use stock text messaging. Sometimes those apps on the market mess things up. We have Sence UI. Some of those programs are just not compatible. Its your choice. I stop using all of those crazy apps since the update.
