    Is there a way to configure the phone so it wakes up (screen lights up) when a text message come in?

    Thanks

    handcent does that for you; the screen lights up and it gives you a popup window to type your reply in without actually going in to open your messages. do not know of any way to configure something similar using the stock messaging app

    SMS Popup (Free - Adam K) may be something you can try that'll allow you to see a notification popup on your phone.

    If prefer to use your Pre Installed SMS application then you can try..

    SMSAwake (Free - Andrew Schimmer) Turns on the screen for 5 seconds when you get an message. This isn't a launchable application. It runs in the background using very little recourses.

    Hope this helps.

    to turn on the screen when it is black right? i use handcent and when i get a message the screen automatically turns on and shows the popup text that i can reply to, it quickly goes back to sleep if no action is taken and the trackball continues to flash to remind you to read/reply

    SMSAwake turns the phone on from sleep. I don't remember if it automatically remove the lock screen. But it was useful when I had it.

    thanks, basically my wife just wants the screen to light up when a message arrives. she uses an ipod when she works out (i know she could use the eris) so she can't hear notifications. we'll give them a try.
