    Default Galaxy Note 3 - Turn Off Screen On For SMS

    How do you turn off the screen turning on when a SMS is received? In the Messages app settings, I unchecked "Preview message", but it still turn on the screen. Is there no option to not have the screen turn on?

    TouchWiz, the modified version of Android Samsung created has this on as a mandatory feature. You could disable the standard messaging application and download Handcent from the Play Store. There is an option in there to disable this feature which I preferred myself when I had a Samsung.

    Download app in placestore called lockscreen policy .in app click on disable added widgets. You wont get no more lockscreen notifications but cant add any new widgets without turning off this option.

    I want to install Verizon's messaging app on my Galaxy Note S3. So I want to disable the default Samsung message app first. How do I accomplish this?

    The pop - up notification should be disabled. This will not preview your msg

    Lockscreen policy still hasn't been updated for 4.4.2. Anyone know of something similar?
