  11. 11
    Tap on "Popup notification"
    .
    In this case it says, "No popup" underneath, indicating that this is the option currently selected. Popup notifications allow us to make some contacts more important than others. We will have four different options: "No popup", "Only when screen 'on'", "Only when screen 'off'", and "Always show popup". We can make notifications from some contacts pop up more. If someone is a good friend and we want to see all of their notifications, we can allow them to pop up. If someone is not so important and we're not so interested in communicating with that person, then we can turn off the popup notifications.
