    I am pretty sure when I got my first few texts with handcent the screen lit up, but now it stays black when receiving a text. Is that how it is supposed to be?

    Does your screen light up when you get a text?

    I know with the default messaging app, the screen does not light up. Once I install ChompSMS I'll let you know if it lights up. I rather like the default app though, so I might not switch.

    For Handcent:

    Go to Settings, Notification Settings, Pop-up settings: check "Screen on for popup".

    Works consistently for me.

    On my Fascinate, there is no "Notification Settings" option at all, NADA.
    Does not exist.... wish it was there, I would also like for it to light up with a text message w/o having to add on another app.

    Then you're not using Handcent.
    P.S. Handcent is much nicer than the stock app and free.
