    No Audible Text Alert when screen goes off

    Anyone else have this problem. If I'm texting back and forth using the standard SMS app, and between texts the screen goes off (to conserve battery life) I don't get audible alerts when a new text comes in. If the screen is on, I do get the audible alert...

    Any suggestions?

    rooted; launcher pro

    Welcome to the forum!

    Sorry, haven't run into the problem you describe. I use Handcent (great app, BTW) & have no issues w/ notifications, audible or otherwise.

    I've not run into this problem either. Are you getting audible alerts for emails and other notifications when the screen is off?

    I turned off audible notifications for email...don't need a ping for each of the 10's of emails I get daily, but hate to miss texts!

    Hopefully handcent will solve your problem, if it doesn't give you audible notifications, then turn the email notifications back on to see if they are working. You need to determine if it is just txt alerts or if all alerts are missing when screen is turned off.

    If you DL Handcent, be sure you turn off notifications in the stock messaging app. Otherwise you'll get notified twice for each text.
