    Hey guys,

    I purchased this phone as a cheaper, backup to have around the house (mainly for app usage) but I have active service with it via Tracfone.

    I'm an iPhone guy and I like my screen waking up when I get a notification so if I miss the tone, I still see the screen light up momentarily. I know Android does not work like this without downloading a 3rd party app. Someone recommended me to use "Wake up" from the Google Play Store. It doesn't work and it's unreliable. Was wondering if someone could recommend an app that actually works?

    Yea that works but it's annoying lol, I don't want my camera light to be turning on. I want the screen to wake up momentarily and then turn back off (like an iPhone does). I know it works because I used it before on an old Android phone years ago. I just don't remember the App I used.

    BTW I have no selection for "screen flash notification" only for "camera flash notification."

    That seems to be working (so far). I'll keep the post updated. Thanks again.
