    I am not looking for the apps that lock down the sms/contacts apps. Looking for something that can hide certain call logs, contacts and messages from those contacts. Any app you know of?

    The mind boggles at what you are up to!!! :) Don't know of any. Unless you perhaps move that contact info to the SIM card and take it out of the contacts, or use Categories/Groups in a novel way...?

    So you're planning on letting your better half use your phone, unattended, but you don't want him/her to find the call logs, contacts, and messages of your affair?

    I think you should have thought of that before you started...

    Best do a factory reset of your phone to get rid of all the incriminating evidence*, and get another phone or SIM card to use only for calling, communicating (with) your secret lover.
    Of course you'll have to hide that other phone or SIM card in your tooth paste.

    *his/her lawyer will have to have someone apply forensic research to get it all back.

    If you're worried someone will see it, why would you even want to leave the stuff on your phone to begin with?

    Perfect example: if I got a rather risqu

    lol... so we arrived at all kind of conclusions while problem still stands awaiting solution. No, it does not involve my spouse and "love affair". But I can see why it went this direction. Just want to keep the conversation going with some old friends, who for some reason broke away from rest of the friend circle.

    +1 for GO SMS. And I would assume (please correct me if I'm wrong) that many of the other popular sms apps have it as well.

    About calls... well, that's more difficult. A quick search through the market gave some results, some of them free (Private SMS & call and Privacy Box) some of them for pay (Decoy Hide Text & Call Logs) but most of them have a small download pool or medium rating, so I don't know how reliable they can be.

    And someone please stop me before I go into a monologue as to why you shouldn't hide friends from other friends and all that stuff... :p
