Welcome to the BBForums.

Yes, it has been, and no it won't. There is a third party application which might do it, posted over in our Aftermarket Software section.

I use a little application called SMS Display On which lights up your screen when a text comes.

BBLight does this, as well. You can find it in the Aftermarket Software stickys.

And it's free.

I downloaded BBLight and I don't see the feature to make it light up on SMS...Care to point out where it is?

I do not understand why RIM would exclude such a basic feature besides to save battery life...but at the same time I don't think it would make that much of a difference

Did you download the latest version? You may have downloaded an older version that didn't include that option.

RIM excludes plenty of basic features, but I guess everyone here just deals with them by paying for 3rd party apps >.>
