Default Text message notification

Hi all,

I was wondering about text messages and getting notified. When I get a text message my pearl vibes and sounds the alert I set it too. But the screen stays black and doesn't turn on to let me know that i have just received a text from whoever. Is this how the pearl is suppose to be or am i missing something here? Do I have to do something to have the screen turn on and show me that i have a new text message?

I would think it would work like a call and the screen comes on and tells you who is calling and the number.

Let me know what is happening on yours..

Your Pearl is operating normally. The screen only lights up for the phone call. You can set it to flash the led, though, to alert you that you've received a message.
