    Hey everyone!

    Another question here. Coming from an iPhone, I really liked having notifications pop up on my lockscreen, especially when a text message is recieved and it shows the name of the person and even part of the text if you'd like. I know it says just "New Message" on the lockscreen, but can it get a bit more detailed? I have been looking everywhere in settings and can't seem to figure out if it is possible on the Galaxy S4... Anybody more experienced know? Thanks!!!

    Use Chomp instead of the stock messenger.

    is there any way to get it to say the name of the sender and "new message" for the message subject. instead of saying just preview or showing everything??

    Sadly, this doesn't seem to be an option on the S4 Google Play edition, just the stock Samsung.
