    Has anyone noticed that if you uncheck the box to enable the lock screen that the Droid X's screen will turn on for incoming text messages? It's rather annoying as I would rather not use a lock screen but don't want the screen turning on for every new text either. Screen stays off fine if the lock screen is enabled. This is my first Android phone so not sure if this is how Android behaves or if it's a Droid X issue.

    It didn't happen on either my last windows mobile phone (Touch Diamond) or my blackberry tour. I just don't like the idea of the screen turning on in my pocket for a text as unlike for a phone call it doesn't seem to use the proximity sensor to know not to do this.

    You might try Handcent or ChompSMS. I know Chomp has a setting for whether or not you want the screen to come on. Not sure if it will control it if the lock screen is disabled or not.

    I already use Handcent and this feature still only works when the screen is locked. Thanks though.
