So every time I get a text the alert sound comes on but the screen doesn't turn on with the preview. I do have a refurbished iPhone 3G does anyone have this problem?

Have you restarted your iPhone?

I would try a soft reset of holding the home and sleep buttons until the Apple logo appears. That should hopefully take care of the issue. In your preferences do you have SMS preview enabled or disabled? I don't think this would have an effect but it could.

Are you jailbroken?

And, you do realize that many would kill for this "feature"... the auto-display of incoming texts is a major gripe for a lot of folks.

my phone does this too. I'm on a jailbroken 3G and sometimes it shows up and sometimes it don't.
