    Question SPH-D710BST screen not lighting up when text message received.

    I have the Samsung galaxy S II E4GT running 4.0.4 from boost mobile. I'm wondering why the screen won't light up when I receive a text message when the phone is locked. The led notification light works. Is that the replacement to the whole screen lighting up when a message is received? It's curious to me because my friends with SII's their screens light up when they get texts.

    My screen does not light up...just the notification light...helps preserve battery! I prefer it that way.

    They probably have an sms app that does that for them, like Go or Handcent. I personally swear by this one...



    Message popups and screen-on while locked, with no extra useless bloat.

    There is no SIM Card for the SPH-D710 or any variant (it is a CDMA phone meant for Sprint and Sprint MVNO's).

    If you are trying to use a SD card you have the wrong S2 variant and need to look for a GSM S2.

    I think some of you are mixing up SD card and SIM card. They are totally different things. This phone, the E4GT (SPH-D710), has a slot and can use an external SD card for storage. It does not, nor does any American Sprint phone, use a SIM card.
