I get a text message pop up when I get a new text message and I don't like it. How do I do away with that pop up. I just want the little red icon notification and no text message pop up.:mad:HELP!

There's no way to turn that off on the 2.0 firmware. There were apps that allowed you to turn it off on jailbroken firmware 1.1.4 and below.

heres how u do it.

goto

1. settings
2.general
3.passcode lock
4. it will ask for a passcode, just press 0000 or whatever you want
5.passcode lock screen comes up and at the bottom it says
"Show SMS Preview" click OFF.


i remember doing this on my V1 i phone, i just tried it on my 3G dunno if it will work cause i haven't received a SMS yet. but thats how you do it though.


EDIT: sorry this actually only keeps it from coming up when you have your phone locked and when it shows up on the main globe screen.

I think he/she wants to get rid of the pop all together. With your method you will still get the text popup. The only difference is that you won't see any of the message contents in the message, It will just show the sender's name, with the words "Text Message" underneath, hence, the "Show SMS Preview" setting that was turned off.

I still wish there was a setting to turn it on and off at your leisure though. There's nothing worse than trying to show someone something on your phone and a personal text message pops up.

reason i would do it is if my girlfriend texts me something i wouldn't want someone else to see other than me.. or anyone else texting me some touchy info =X

THe iPhone is not Player proof like the 8800 series blackberrys. iPhone are not made for hiding Apps, IM's, and SMS yet! Well, I hope it is a yet! lol. THe old software did allow you to adjust so you can see "Text Message" vs now "Text Message, meet me at your house babe for a happy ending" lol Playa Proof the iPhone please!

I know exactly what you mean, it's so annoying. Why have Apple got EVERYTHING that involves SMS soooo wrong? Anyone think this will be fixed in a future update, or is this just wishful thinking?

Lol a year later, folks want player proof iPhones. I knew it was coming now that players think the phone is cool.

"player this", "player that". What's so cool about cheating on your bf/gf? I don't get it. Mess around all you want, but at least be honest about it. Real players don't cheat, anyway - they don't have to, because they can be straight up about who they are and what they want, and still GET what they want. Only losers have to lie and hide and cheat to get what they want.
