Nokia C3-01 - How am I notified of new messages in Nokia Messaging 3.0 Chat when the application is in the background?

Depending on your device settings and Chat settings, you are notified of new messages by an audible alert, the vibration of your device, or a notification on the home screen. The notification appears in a widget and displays the number of new messages, as well as the names of the senders. Select a notification to access the Chat application and view the IM message.
