    Sprint GS4 here. Why doesn't the screen light up when a text is recieved and what is the benefit of having a sms pop up that you can't access from the lock screen?

    Agreed. 2 things you may want to look into if you haven't:

    1. Install SMS Pop (this is what I have done). It allows for the popup as well as quick reply and other settings as well.
    2. Install a different Messaging app (Handcent, GoSMS, Chomp) that includes the above and more.

    Android stock messaging apps on all devices are lacking so it's good that we can install some add on or other apps with more functionality. Personally, I'd like the stock app to be better but it is what it is.

    No. Just disable all notifications from the stock messaging app.

    When it pops up on the screen and a select "close" the sms icon on the screen shows a 1. Even when I go into the sms app and click on the message the 1 is still there. To get it to go away I have to delete the message completly. Hmmmmm.

    I'm a big fan of Popup Notifier. You can set SMS for a quick reply or just a view/close notification option popup, plus add popups for any app that gives off notifications.

    The stock pop up works and you can open text app from pop up. All you do is touch the pop up, then it brings up a square down below it, where u swipe inside that square and it will unlock it and bring up the text app. Thanks to clintw22

    That's good to know. I wish it had quick reply in the pop up then I'd be good to go.

    I wonder why the Sprint version doesn't wake the screen when a text is received.
