    Default Text Message Preview in Notification Bar

    On my previous phone, when I would receive a text message, Handcent or Go SMS, whichever I was using at the time since I swicthed between them frequently, would light up the screen and the text message would show in the status bar, and then the screen would turn off. On the Galaxy S3, the screen lights up, but the message doesn't show in the bar, just the notification icon. Is there a way to get the text to show in the notification bar?

    I know if I go into my settings then privacy there is a option to have text messages display the message at the top of ur bar or even pop up on the lock screen. I prefer to have mine not show up due to different texts that I wouldn't want being seen if someone should see the text come through. Maybe this will help.

    Oh and if u go into your actual text messaging and hit settings you can also from there select to have it preview the message with the notification or not also. I'm sure if u use hand cent or another service it will be in the options or settings of the client.

    Yeah, I just checked, and it apparently will show the message in the bar, but only if the phone is unlocked. Anyone know if you can get it to do it with the screen locked?

    After a fair bit of googling, it would appear that I'm the only person in the world that wants to turn this on, rather than off, and I may be SOL.

    Depends on the lock screen. Using just Swipe it will show. Using a Password or Pattern lock it will not as it would defeat the purpose of the lock.
