    unless I have notifications set to off.

    I noticed a thread in the HTC Hero about something called ChompSMS that stops this.

    Does anyone have any advice on what I can do so that I still get a notification (vibrate/sound) that I have a text message or an email, but nobody can SEE those messages on my lock screen?

    I don't know about the native SMS, but with Handcent, there is a way in the settings to just have the little icon pop up in the notification bar and I think it says "new message". It is part of the privacy settings in Handcent.

    thank you. I actually downloaded chompSMS and it does exactly what I need, with a cool interface to boot.
