If you turn on the "Passcode Lock" you can turn off the "Show SMS Preview". It will still pop up when the phone is locked, but it won't show the actual message, if that's what you're trying to avoid.I was wondering if I can block a certain phone number from texting me...is that possible? Also, all text messages just automatically show up on the screen, is there a way to not have that happen? Thanks
about blocking certain text, unfortunately there's no way to block certain text with AT&T, or any other carrier for that matter...we have to choose whether we have the capablity to text or we don't in any event, if you don't want contact from that certain number an option would be to change your number, but many of us wouldn't like to do that since we may have had our numbers for quite some time now.I was wondering if I can block a certain phone number from texting me...is that possible?

All apps like this will necessarily have to be jailbroken because Apple doesn't give enough control to appstore apps.I searched under the app store for the PYSL application and did not find anything. I have the 3G phone and need desperately to block a pranker that keeps sending explicit textes and leaving nasty messages. I do not have the option of changing my number. We all know how cumbersome that can be. Any guidance would be much appreciated.
Unless things have changed since I worked for Sprint, not very long ago, you can get that info by calling if you really need it. Corp. Security will supply you with the log, times and #'s last I heard and you are correct, not the message content without subpoena as breaks privacy laws. Try calling again and ask for that department. There is a specific # just for that.Sprint does allow blocking of individual numbers from texting you. But strangely, Sprint does not show a text log online or in your bill claiming privacy issues - if I'm the owner of the account and Sprint is charging me per text, they should supply me a log of number and time of texts (not actual message ) but they won't. They do display a call log - shouldn't their same "privacy issues" apply to calls ? Anyway, I guess can't have everything.
