    I'm using ChompSMS and was wondering if it was possible to have the sender's name appear somewhere on the lock screen, when an SMS is received?

    I notice that the native messaging app has the sender's name below the unlock bar on the lock screen, but using Handcent or ChompSMS seems to get rid of this.

    Surely there's some way to display this information?

    The thing is the lock screen is HTC sense. Thats why the default sms app can do it. Unless 3rd party apps sepcifically have access to this (I would expect that to be set as default) or sense allows access to that app... I wouldn't expect it can be done.

    This is of course, my opinion and not fact.

    I'm amazed that this still hasn't been added to either Handcent or ChompSMS. Surely it'd be easy enough to include an option to have the sender's name appear beside the icon on the navigation bar?

    Why not email the dev's of both apps suggesting it?

    Does a non-sense UI ROM have the ability to do this?
