Display screen when receiving SMS?

When I receive an SMS, I have to press the trackball for the screen to light up before selecting the SMS. When there is an incoming call, the screen lights up. I would like it the same for SMS.

 

Is it possible?

 

Thanks in advance.

This is not possible natively.  There are some 3rd party apps that you can install to make this happen.  I don't recall just which ones, though.

Also, I think BBLight will do this, as well. Its free too.

BBLight looks interesting, as well as BBWeather. I hope the latter works for the UK.

 

Thanks again!
