Why is there no push notification or some notification for incoming messages in the screen when the phone is in locked state? I am using Samsung Galaxy Note. When my phone is in locked state, and when I click the power button I see the pattern unlocking screen. When new messages flow in, I just see a mail icon in the top status bar, but no other notifications in the screen. What needs to be done for that?

What other notifications do you expect? – Richard Borcsik Aug 1 '12 at 9:50

If you would like something on your screen in addition to the notification in your notification bar, I would suggest using something like GoSMS with WidgetLocker.

If I'm correct in your understanding, this will do what you want: Set up WidgetLocker to be your unlock screen and then place a GoSMS messaging widget on your lock screen, so you can read the messages immediately.

I don't know if this is what you are looking for, but I hope it helps!
