Default 8220 outerscreen not displaying who is texting

Please Login to Remove!

This is probably a realy stupid question, but before when i recieved text messages it would show on the outerscreen who was texting me, what the text said, and a picture of the person before i opened up my phone. Now the screen is blank when i recieve a text, yet when i recieve phone calls, the outerscreen shows who is calling and their picture. i'm assuming i must have accidently changed the setting somehow. does anyone know how to change the setting back to how it was originally?

Pull out the battery, leave it out for 30 secs and put it back in.

No - it is a feature currently unique to the 8220. If you want to get pop up alerts on your phone, I'd suggest trying something like Aerize Alerts.
