    Default Able to preview text messages on lock/home screen?

    Hello all,

    Fairly new to Android and coming from iPhone.

    Just wondering if there's any way to have my incoming text messages preview on the lock and/or home screen (as done with the iPhone)?

    Thanks!

    You sure can.
    Go into your messaging app, then select the 3 vertical dots at the top right hand corner of your screen.
    Select setting, then notifications.
    You should then see an option under "preview message" to tick a box to view on lock screen and/or status bar.

    Thanks for the information you provided. I was wondering too. That's the beauty of Android Central.

    Sent from my sweet, sassy, southern and soulful White Galaxy Note 3.
