Ok I know this might go in the Android Application forum, but since its related to the lock screen I thought I would post here first. Is anyone who is using Handcent SMS app have the pop up notification set and when you receive a text it pops up over the lock screen and allows you to type and reply even though the phone is locked? I know there is a setting to Show popup over lock screen which I can turn off, but I want to be able to see the popup, I am just afraid if its in my pocket and i get a text message its going to start typing back even though the screen is supposed to be locked. Has anyone experienced this and have any solutions or work arounds?
Xorbe, yes I know where that setting is, but if you turn it off then u don't get any notification of a text message if the screen is locked like the screen won 't come on for the notification. I want the pop up to come up but for me not to be able to push any buttons on it until I unlock the phone?
Yes try it, it overrides the lock screen when the pop up comes up so you can begin typing even if its locked, so I dont think there is anyway around it. Its alright I did some test texts and i think i'm just going to leave the option off this way the screen does actually light up and the message goes in notification bar and then i have ot unlock to get to the pop up.
I am just afraid if its in my pocket and i get a text message its going to start typing back even though the screen is supposed to be locked. Has anyone experienced this and have any solutions or work arounds?
This is a capacitive screen, not resistive, so it will never be able to do anything by itself in your pocket.
umm thats not true as last weekend I took it out of my pocket and it had started typing something already, so yes if the screen is on from getting a pop up u can accidently type something by pushing the screen by accident
