disabling text preview on unlock screen?
Whenever I receive a text on my new inspire I get a (not so) nice little "new text" alert right below the unlock bar. It tells me who has texted me and even gives me a (again, not so) nice little preview of what the text says. I'm saying "not so nice" because I don't want it there. I enabled a pin lock on my phone so that no nosy people, like my parents, can try to go through my texts. However, this little feature kind of ruins the whole purpose of having a phone lock since anyone could just pick up my phone and read the first 3-4 words of any new text without even unlocking my phone!
Is there ANY way to disable this feature AT ALL? I mean ANY way, i don't care how difficult/involved it may be, I'm open for anything. Thanks!

Ok I just tried that and yes it did solve the text preview problem, but now my phone doesn't vibrate when I get a text...
So, thanks for that tip because that really will help me out in certain situations where I know I'm going to be leaving my phone lying around, but I was also looking for a more permanent solution that won't require me having to tweak my phone's settings everyday.
Any other tips anyone?

Ok ********, first of all, I don't tell you how to run your life so don't you tell me how to run mine. I'm not "ashamed" of anything that I do, but my parents certainly doesn't approve. Now, I'm not going to elaborate on what it is exactly that I do because I'm not sure that I'm even allowed to discuss that kind of stuff on this forum, but unless you had a very sheltered childhood, you should know what kinds if things I'm referring to.

I agree that privacy while living under your parent's roof is important, but calling someone names is a sign of your lack of maturity, IMO. There are some within these forums whom try to handle things in a mature manner... Trying to lead by example... If we were to provide you with the information you requested after your showing this lack of respect, we would be condoning your action.
If you chose to begin conducting yourself in a more respectful manner, by offering an open appoligy / editting your previous post, someone may be willing to help you.
Best of luck with your Android experience...

*** Mods - I apologize for this becoming off topic ***
You guys act like I actually hurt this guys feelings or something. If you look it from my perspective I had just come back to check on my thread only to find two replies by people who decided that I was somehow a perverted little 12 year old. I'm sorry if I was a little overreacting, I have to admit, they pissed me off pretty good.

Getting pissed off is a natural respose for the way you were approached. I agree, it wasn't fair how they initially replied to your post.
The way you responded is what disappointed me.
Did you hurt the guy's feelings? No. Did you lower yourself to respond to the attack? It seemed so...
Responding in the way you did only serves to lower the opinion ppl have of you.
- Now, to provide my suggestion -
DL a program called SMS Popup or Handcent. They both have settings that will perform what you are requesting.
Any other questions or need help finding the settings, drop me a PM and I'll be happy to help!
