    When you have the notification on your lock screen that previews the message and tells you who it is from...is there a way to access the text from the text message preview/notification? I have tried swiping it,short and long pressing it and all it does is opens up a transparent white box below it but still shows the lock screen so I just have to go through the lock screen short cut. I much rather just clock the notification and it go to the message........

    I always have to unlock the screen to see the whole message.

    Might be an app to do this.

    From the message preview you swipe down (finger on message preview) it opens the lock screen widget - then tap the message and takes you directly into it.

    Difficult to explain, hope that makes sense !

    Was just about to type this. I assume they'll tweak that to make it easier in an update.

    Yeah it really sucks and is not very user friendly but I will deal with it. It is just one annoying thing on an awesome phone!

    You can always just use the notification shade to access the message from the lock screen, too.

    OMG I love the screen shots they show with characters and lines from The Princess Bride! Thanks for sharing that app looks great and is worth the $1.49.

    I have seen a forum response (to the question about turning off message preview) to suspend message preview but I do not have the preview option under messaging option?
