    The wife and I have some adult jokes and a few pics (dirty sms jokes) on our evo we don't want the kids getting a hold of. They love playing the papijump and furiburd apps though so it makes it difficult for us to keep anything on the phone. with her blackberry she can create hidden folders. I cant figure it out on android though. any pointers?

    You could use AppLock / App Protector to just lock your SMS, email, etc apps entirely. I'm not sure you'd want your kids in there at all anyway.

    I have certain videos and photos on the sd card.
    Create a folder that names begins with . And it will be hidden from the os.

    That won't help you though since what your trying to hide, is in an sms

    I say get the kids a DS.

    The fear of droppage keeps me from allowing my nieces/nephews from holding mine.

    DS - $129
    Insurance to replace EVO - $100

    I let my 3yo play with mine. She loves the "Toddler Lock" app.

    I just tried it out, great app. Set up a password and you're good to go. It has a public gallery (the pictures on your phone) and the private gallery. You just select whatever you want in the public gallery to be private and that's about it. Thanks for the tip.

    Do you think that Asurion (the Sprint phone insurance company) will actually have any EVOs in stock incase your kid breaks it?

    You know they are allowed to replace your broken phone with a different model as long as it is of "equal value"....lol....send in your EVO and get a Hero or Palm Pre back.....lol

    Just put a period in front of a folder name and it will then be a hidden folder so gallery wont see it but you can see it from astro or another file manager.

    Edit: sorry, see that fr4nk1yn already mentioned this.

    Asurion is much like Sprint...Getting pissed and yelling at them results in whatever the customer wants.

    Sorry, to have hijacked the thread.

    I downloaded a free app called hideNseek. Basically you can hide any file with this app and it won't show up. I have videos and pictures that i do not want to show up under the gallery. All you do is click the menu and show all or hide all. Also it acts as a flashlight and is password protected. To bring the password up you hit menu a few times when the flashlight is on. Pretty cool app.

    Edit: I don't think it was a free app. Think it was a $1. Check it out though. Well worth it. Specially if you need a flashlight and you only have your phone on ya!
