    Does anybody know if there's a way to encrypt and password-protect sent and received SMS messages?

    I'm not bothered about encrypting messages being sent - just those that are stored on my phone.

    There are a lot of applications like that go into the market and type encrypted and a lot of them will pop up.

    If you actually want to send and receive encrypted messages, I know just what you are looking for: Parandroid Messaging, available in the market for android 2.1 devices. It uses the default Android user interface and you can protect your encrypted messages with a password.

    If you just want to store them encrypted, I don't know. I think there are apps to set a password on the sms program, will that work for you?

    One can only hope that Android 3.0 will finally implement the per-record privacy flag that PalmOS had a decade ago ... "Problum solved".

    Sorry, couldn't resist. :rolleyes:
