If not, there are alternative SMS apps in the play store which do let you control what shows in the pop-up (or even whether there is one). So if the built in one doesn't do what you want, turn it's notifications/popup off (to avoid duplication) and try a different one.
ahh ok thanks! and ive got another problem, when i add my google account, it keeps adding "contacts" into my contacts folder, how do i STOP this from happening?
