    Default Text notification on lock screen

    I used to have a S3 that when I got a text or missed call there would be a bubble ob the lock screen I could swipe to view it. On my N2 I dont see it. Did they remove it on this device or am I missing a setting?

    I too am wondering this. I saw some documentation on Samsungs site that showed it on a note 2 and I was wondering how to get it to show up as well.

    Same here, been wondering that since day 1. I wonder if Verizon removed it like the other features.

    On my lock screen I have 5 icons (one of them being the text message icon). From the lock screen I can swipe from that button upward, and it will open my text messages. Is that similar to what you're talking about on the SIII?

    I never really used those notifications since I get a notification badge on the phone icon and the GoChat icon but I don't see anywhere in settings to turn the notifications in your pic on or off.

    There is a feature under Motion called Quick Glance that's kinda cool. Maybe that replaced what you're looking for? I still haven't gotten the hang of what motion triggers it but it's neat and I don't remember that being on my GS3.

    Instead of the circles each icon that's set on your lockscreen can be swiped away to open to their respective menus. Menu>Settings> lockscreen>lockscreen options>tap shortcuts, edit as you choose. This is better yeah?

    You could swipe the Icons on the S3 too. I personally like the notifications that pop up better. I didnt care for the icons.

    If they held it back so they can strategically add them in an OTA all courtesy of Verizon giving us "new" features, I will crack up.

    Verizon removed this on the recent jelly bean update on the GS3 as well. Not sure if I missed that but I was reading quick.

    Not sure why they removed it, guess its there way of "enhancing" the experience or that's what they are claiming to do.

    So they limited/removed all these nice and important feature of the phone and added in all the bloatware that I will never ever use and cant ever remove. Using up storage that I could potentially use to store something else that I paid for. On top of their ridiculously high fee. Unfortunately I cant leave them. The area I live in the only other comparable comm service is AT&T, but their service sucks in some area here.

    That works as long as you don't have a pattern or other security feature enabled. . Besides swipe
