Text messages or alerts on television screen?

Text messages or alerts on television screen?

Sure would like to know when those text messages come in.  I do not have cell phone service and hate getting up to check messages more than I have to.  It is worse when it's a message that may have been important.  It would be beneficial to see some kind of alert pop up on screen (or the message itself).  I can see concern of messages being seen by unauthorized individuals, but maybe an access code need be applied that allows messages for a set amount of time chosen by the viewer (with possible option to allow message alerts until cable box is turned off).

Re: Text Messages to phone appear on tv?

I agree.  I believe the text messaging should be configured so we can see the messages/sender appear on the screen as we do the phone number when a call comes in.  If nothing else some kind of option to allow for text/email received alerts onscreen.  Hoping this gets included in the services!!!
