    Well, this may not be quite what you want, but take a look at NoLED in the Play store. It can be used to get indications on the screen when you get things like messages, e-mails, missed calls, etc., but the screen is basically still off (black, with just dots or icons). I've been using it since I had my old original Epic, and it works pretty well for letting me know (a) when something comes in and (b) what's coming in. I hope this is of some help.

    Sorry, I don't know then. I came to the Note 3 from an original Galaxy S. Maybe someone else can help.

    Are you using the standard messaging app? If you look through it you'll have some options, but not sure if that is any of them. I know I use Handcent and can do all the things you're talking about.

    You can use espier lock screen and espier notifications from the play store. They do look like iOS though
    Handset SMS has popup notifications that you can set to wake when receiving a SMS message.

    i would prefer my note3 to not look like ios, but to have the screen illuminate like the s3 when a text message is received and also for the message not to be displayed on the lock screen. thank you tho

    In order for the text not to show up on the lockscreen, there's an option that disables the notification on the status bar and the lock screen. It sucks, I know. It especially doesn't make sense when you enable a PIN or pattern and it still shows.

    As far as lighting up, I have no idea. I'm sure Handcent has a "pop up" setting that will light up your screen.

    Check out this app in Google Play:



    Free version works great, and there's a paid version with more features.

    Basically mimics what Motorola did for the Moto X's Active Notifications. I *love* it, since it doesn't actually turn the screen on all the way, but a quick swipe can either open the notification, dismiss it, or even just unlock the phone if the notification reminds me that I forgot to do something else.

    Since the N3 uses an AMOLED screen, it uses very little battery to show notifications, while still allowing you to jump straight into the app.

    already tried that setting. i guess what i am tryin to say is that i do not want message or preview of said message on my lock screen and also for the screen to illuminate when said message is received just like my s3 does right out of the box.

    I use the Contacts+, it can replace your contact, calling, and text app. When I use the app and my screen is of it will illuminate and show your message in a small box. It's also free.

    Do you guys know how to make it read the name of whom you recieved the message but not the message its self. I could do this on my iPhone 5 and I was wondering could you do it on SGN3?
