    I am new to Android and I love this phone, but I can't figure out a way to get the screen to wake up when I receive a text.

    I hope this is possible as that would be ideal for me as many times I miss the message alert sound.

    Thanks!


    p.s. I know the notification light pulses after a missed text, but I would love the screen to wake up for a second when I receiving a text.

    The closest thing to what you are talking about that I have used, which is pretty nice is Dynamic Notifications.

    It works a lot like Motorola's Active Display.

    P.S. Welcome to the forums!

    Textra let's you set quiet hours to avoid late night disturbances.
