    The problem I'm having is that whenever I get Text notification it wakes my screen. I'm using the default messenger. I don't want it to do that but I can't figure out how to stop it. Is there any way?

    That did nothing. The screen still wakes.

    Sounds like you have another app installed that is turning your screen on when you receive a message.

    I have the same issue. Haven't a clue how to turn off the screen waking up from a text message. How do you turn that off? The text message application (stock), which boxes are check? I don't see anything mentioning about screen waking up.

    In the stock app settings go to the notification settings and uncheck the box to receive notifications.

    Hulk and MItri: what 3rd party apps do you have installed? I don't think the stock messaging app, by itself, works this way.

    I don't have any third party application installed for texting or anything. I'm bone stock.

    If it isn't to much trouble. Could you screen shot what you are mentioning.

    Do you have the preview option checked in the notifications settings? If the phone is showing you a preview of the message it will turn on the phone

    this setting is not present on stock phones. the phone must be rooted and original messanging application must be modified. I used to have this one on the LJ (whatever the last Jb version was), but after a hard reset, the mods on MA6 do not work.

    here is a thread about it on XDA: [MOD/HOW-TO] Disable screen-on when receiving SMS Messages. Updated for Jelly Bean - xda-developers

    Damn, that sucks. I need to be rooted to get rid of "screen on" notification. Why are other phone users not having this issue and they're bone stock too?

    You should be able to get ride of the pop-ups, without rooting, but using Handcent or another SMS app. Handcent (and others) are free, so give one of these apps a try. Make sure to turn off all notifications in the stock messaging app.

    anyone who can turn off their screen with MA6 update, can you please post the SecMMS.apk file.
