    Default Bell S3 is it me or everyone? pop ups on lock screen

    Ever since the 4.3 update, I now get a notification box 4cmX 2cm that will disply... Missed call from Joe Blow or New Text message,
    THIS IS NOT THE SMALL NOTIFICATION BAR AT THE TOP. This is a box simular to a Widgit. Reading on the web it may be something called NiLS Notification Lock Screen app.
    While the web refers to this as an app that YOU decide to install it may be an app that BELL has put in the new update package...I dont know.

    What Im looking for is info. AM I THE ONLY ONE GETTING THIS? If it is then it must be an app on my phone.
    If other with bell also getting it? Do people with other perviders getting it?
    Trying to figure out if its an app, Android feature that cant be turned off, BELL Bloat ware etc.
    Right now I feel I have no option but to root the phone and load a custom kernal.

    I also dislike the new heads next to text messages. Its like thge i phone. Like were to stupid to know who said what in the message ...just dumb.
    I also had the flashing light on the back when I recieved calls.
    Over all I have been able to turn off all the new crap in this update but these notifications on the lock screen are a show stoper

    I don't have 4.3 but from reading various posts there's a message preview feature associated with the lockscreen that you can turn off. I can't tell you the exact path to follow but now that you know what to look for hopefully you can find it and disable it.

    This is the new Samsung standard for JB4.3 on all of their devices, it has replaced the little circle you used to get with JB 4.1 on the left side of the lock screen when you had a SMS, or on the right side when you had a missed phone call. It is like that on the S4 and the Note 3 too.

    Cheers
