HELP........HELP........with text messaging

Hello,

I was wondering if someone could help me, How do I get the phone to wake up from sleep mode when a text message comes in. It shows me when some calls me, but when a text comes it plays a light chime but stays sleep (black screen). The only way I know I have a message is to unlock phone and then it shows on my lock screen. Can someone help me or is this the way the phone is.

I don't have that phone, but that's how my phone responds when I receive a text message.  I receive a notification sound (I chose a distinctive ringtone) and then the notification light in the upper right-hand corner blinks.  If I want to read the text message, I have to manually wake the phone.  You may want to change your settings a bit, if you haven't already; I did see these notes on the HTC web site:

bummer; assuming you bought the phone from Verizon, you have 14 days from date of purchase to return it (minus a restocking fee) or have it exchanged
