    Receiving text..

    is there anyway to have the phone light up and show the text message whenever you get one. as of right now whenever i receive one while the phone is off it just beeps but the screen doesn't come on or show a preview of what the text says.

    Handscent will indeed give you a preview of the text. You can then flip the keyboard out and reply, or use the on screen keyboard. I may try chomp sms and see how that is, and leave some feedback here.

    When using Handcent set the conversation style to Android. This will give you no bubbles, just background alternating colors so you can tell which are your replies. The text is displayed across the full width of the screen in both portrait and landscape.
