    Default Lock screen turns on with SMS...

    Just switched from a dinc2 to an S3 so I'm still getting used to my phone.

    Is there anyway to disable the screen from turning on when I receive a text? I don't want to set a password but I'd like to have the option at least....

    Ty!

    You're using a 3rd party sms app right? I don't believe the stock messaging app has that option. If it's gosms, hit menu then settings and notifications. Within that, there will be options for notifications and just tweak them. Uncheck the box for "screen on when receiving messages". If you're using a different app then just mess with the settings.

    I really didn't want to switch to a 3rd party app....I've always had the opposite problem!

    I'm not sure what you're saying. Does your statement mean you are or are not using a 3rd party app? The stock messaging app does not turn the screen on when receiving messages. At least mine doesn't and there is no option to do so or to turn it off so I'm not sure what's happening on your device

    My phone's screen turns on every time I receive a text and if I'm not crazy there is no way to stop it using the stock messaging app.

    Well I guess if it bothers you then you gotta download a 3rd party sms app and shut it off.

    Mine also turns on when locked and an sms comes in. I don't mind but would like to be able to turn it off.

    This is on my JB wishlist. But a 3rd party app would probably be the only way.

    I'm not using a 3rd party app, I don't want to and every text turns my screen on. Not too difficult to figure out.

    It can't be done with the stock one.

    the only way to stop it with the stock app is to turn off the text notifications completely . on mine all i get is a little small number right on the message icon that tells me how many texts i have waiting . thats the only way i could stop the screen from lighting up . hope this helps.

    At that point, you might as well just use a third party app and ditch the stock one

    Yeah there is no way to stop it from doing that with the stock app. It was the very first gripe I had with the phone when I bought it last summer. I was hoping with the JB update they would add an option to turn it off, but of course there is not.
    Only way to do it is to use a 3rd party texting app.... Which is bs
