Default [Q] My VZW G2 vs Friends ATT G2. Why doesn't mine do it too?

OK so I have a VZW G2 and my friend has an ATT G2. When he gets a text message his screen will turn on and mine won't. And his notification light blinks about every 2 to 3 seconds where as mine is something like everything 30 seconds. These both suck and I want it to be like the ATT version but I can't figure out how.

Any help would be great.
One more thing, I've also got home screen redraws and he said he has never had one. WTF?

Interesting. I hate how the screen doesn't turn on when I get a text on my VZ g2. Would love to hear the answer or if the is a fix.

Been using this since I got my phone. The time isn't very accurate in my experience, I have it set for 10 seconds but it's closer to 5 or 6. Anyway, it works well enough so I haven't bothered looking for another similar app.

Just tried it. It does wake the screen but then it gets rid of my notification light and missed message icon in the status bar all together. So if I missed to screen turning on I wouldn't know I had a new message at all.

I use Light Flow for LED control. Stock LED controller has never been very useful for me. You can easily set different colors and durations and pretty much anything else you'd ever want.

Plus one on Light Flow. So many customizations and can even control your power button led and flashlight. Blows all others away imho.

I can't get Light Flow to do anything other than wake the screen.
