    Open your stock SMS app (should be "Text Messaging" in your app drawer). Click the menu/settings button (far left hard key), click Messaging Settings and you'll see "Notifications." Uncheck that box and you should be set.

    yup, he means the key that looks like 4 squares

    click that button, and four boxes will come up

    one of those boxes says "Messaging settings"

    click that one

    Under the "Text messaging settings" bar, you will see "Notifications, Status bar" is checked

    Uncheck it.

    I had the same problem and the above corrected it. I do have a question that may go with all this though. When I get a txt, and I go and unlock the phone, a window automatically shows up, with the txt message. Then it allows me to send a "quick" reply. I would actually like to get this to stop showing up too.
