    I have all the motion and gesture options turned off. What all do I need to do to keep my screen from waking up when receiving a text message?

    I noticed my screen waking up when a friend of mine , texted me this evening.

    Okay. I changed it to that. Hopefully, it'll keep my screen from waking up. If it doesn't work, I'll reply back.

    Thanks!

    It didn't work. I changed the notification to hide content on the lock screen. My screen still lit up. :/

    Edge lighting and notifications, found in Display settings.

    Accessibility Advanced settings Flash notifications

    There are almost too many custom settings to control the phone.

    I could try but then I won't be able to hear notification sounds. I feel like it's like an iPhone... when it lights up when I get a text message. It's really weird.

    Samsung Support on Twitter is of no help. They always tell me to go to a walk in Service center. That's what they told me when you were helping me with my DnD not working on my S9+. *insert eyeroll here* lol

    I guess I contacted them, thinking they wouldn't keep telling me to go to a Service center to get a quick evaluation of the device. Their support is a joke.

    Thanks! I will. if I don't hear back from you in a while and I haven't figured anything out either, I will mention (call you out) .

    I had the same issue on my Note 10+, i figured it out. You gotta go to your settings, then find Edge Lighting, dont turn it off. Leave it on, but under Edge Lighting click on MANAGE NOTIFICATIONS, and thats where you select which apps you want to wake up your screen when notifications come through. When i clicked on that, my texts were checked off. Check it off, or whatever app that lights up unclick it. Thats it!

    I had the same issue when riding my bike the screen turning on in my pocket when getting a text but I managed somehow to turn it off. I don't remember what I did though. The endless settings in this phone are maddening! If I remember I'll post.

    My previous LG V20 wasn't this complicated when trying to change some settings. I don't think its Android but Samsung and their implementation of personal customization.

    Ok, I think I remember, lol.....

    When the screen wakes from the notification.....click (or long press/hold) on that notification and I believe the setting is somewhere in there not to wake screen anymore. So you should 'hear' the notification but the screen won't wake....especially if its in your pocket....so stupid!! I hope that was it, lol.

    Sitting here at work, I just noticed my screen wakes up when I receive a text from my brother so I offer my humble apology for not knowing what I'm talking about. Hope you find your solution OP.

    I'm trying something different to resolve the issue! I decided to download / and install Textra SMS app. And customize the settings in the Textra SMS app to not wake up the screen when I receive a text. And I've made Textra SMS app as my default for text messages / messages.

    Might be the only way to avoid the screen waking up other than to always have 'Do not disturb' on.

    I don't know. I need someone to send me a text. So I guess I'll wait to see what happens when someone does.
