        the phone should "communicate" to user without need to turnon/unlock the phone. It would be good to have visible if you have missed sms or phone call wihtout need to unlock the phone. E.g. you go and get cafe in the office and leave your phone on the desk. when coming back you do not know if someone has tried to reach you or someone has sent you sms without unlocking the phone. the phone should "actively communicate" to the user rather than just sitting on the table.

        Agreed as for hearing impaired. Would save time to do not have unlock screen every time to check any notification.

        This idea would make the Windows phone far more superior to any other phone, especially Blackberry and iPhones. Hope this gets passed, it would be an easy idea.
