    I want the INCOMING message to show up on the home page when it is first received, like the iphone does, it covers a good portion of the screen, for a few seconds even when the phone is asleep, then it goes away until you wake it up. I tried Handcent and I'm now using ChompSMS. With Chomp you get this tiny little ticker at the top of the screen, that is all. Is it possible to have that feature with this phone?

    Check out SMS Popup. This app works in concert with the stock messaging program.

    I use Handcent SMS's pop-up feature. It pops up a full keyboard, ready-to-type-and-reply. All I do is look at my screen, type my reply, hit send, and sleep my phone. Done.

    Faster/more efficient than any phone I've had. Ever.

    I'm waiting for chompSMS to get this feature. I used to have Handcent but I think that chomp is much better.
