    Default Text message notification - Galaxy S4

    Hi everyone
    Very new here so apologise if I make any stupid mistakes.

    I have a new S4 and am still fairly new to android and I would like to know if it is possible to have a text message notification appear which only says who the message has come from and not a preview of the message. I seem to be able to get either the preview or just a notification I have a message. Is this possible?

    Hi and welcome to AC I think you need to go into the message settings. There should be a section in there to change the message preview. Don't go into the Settings app within your phone, go into the messaging app then have a look for the "settings" option.

    Hope this helps

    My SMS Settings menu has a choice for Preview message On/Off (Show a preview of received messages on the status bar and lock screen). There is no option to show only Sender or Message, just all preview on or off.
    Blessed are they who can laugh at themselves, for they shall never cease to be amused.

    Ah right, I think Trucky has answered my questions as I just wanted the senders name displayed and not the actual message. Its just a case of getting use to Android I think.
    Thanks everyone!
