    Is there any way to prevent the Treo screen from turning on when you receive an SMS message?

    Now that the Treo Butler's out, I have no need to check the screen to see if I have new messages and its really annoying that the screen turns on when I get a message.

    Thanks!

    Just to be sure I understand: CallShield can stop the *screen* from turning on upon receipt of an SMS, while still ringing/vibrating the phone briefly? If so, I'll buy it right now.

    The Handango page (http://tinyurl.com/ypvmw) makes it look more like it's all about blocking/refusing SMS messages, which is not what I want. I just don't want the screen to come on indefinitely and waste my battery.

    Many thanks!

    One of the tasks I have CallShield set is to suppress popup. The trigger text is mail and it is set to do that every day from 7a to 10p and yepper, on my Treo 600 it works like a charm. I get no notifications at all, which is the way I want it (not the song), so that if it should ever get lost or stolen or whatever, I can send a SMS message to turn it off using TreoHelper.

    Let me ask this then...
    Is there a way you can set your sms to return an automated text message to the original sender when u receive a text message?
    "I have to return some videotapes."
