Lets say you are doing something on the iPhone, like on the internet, or you are watching a video, then you get this txt pop up! you can close... or you can hit reply, now the problem with that is if you close then its no longer a new txt, so you can easily forget about it later. I hope they will change this with the 2.0 update to where you can just close and yet the message still be as unread.

Or give us the option to kill that popup altogether. I know many like me really hate that "feature"

The only time the popup feature annoys me is when I get a text while on a call, and I decide not to look at it right away. When I go to hit End Call, the "Reply or Close" option is blocking the end call button, so I have to hit Close and then hit end call, it can get really annoying.

An issue for me too!

sorry to burst your bubble (no pun intended) but this hasn't really bugged me at all
whenever i get that popup it shows the first part of the text anyway so i pretty much know what it says
i would rather have it the way it is than any other way

its all a thing of personal preference. thats why there should be an option in settings that allows you to turn the pop-up on or off. i always use my phone for music in my car. i have pass code lock set on so it doesn't display my messages. but when the phone isn't locked it displays the message. since i use my phone for music i have it plugged in and when ipod is in use the screen doesn't turn off and everyone in the car can see my message.

I would like an option in settings as well. It might save some embarrassment sometime.
