And if you get a message that you don't want to reply to? Will the time be replaced until you read the message, or will the message disappear after some time?

Based purely on my experience I'd say the chance is that they will be.
I have friends and relatives with the same first names so this would be impossible for me, and in the case of work related contacts, I might not even know the name of the person but I can see from the email address which company they work for so I would need around 20 characters.

We were talking about determining whether or not the message is important enough for a person to pull the car over and answer immediately.

You lost me here. You don't think that LCD screens light up?

And you lost me here as well. What is your objection to carrying two devices? I was assuming that it had to do with having to carry two different pieces of equipment, but apparently that isn't it so what is the objection?
