    Is there anyway to remove the contact and shortened text message from the bottom of the home screen each time a new text message arrives. I'd like to keep the notification icon, just would like to eliminate the abbreviated message and contact.

    This is definitely relevant to my interests. I hate the abbreviated message that pops up at the top and at the bottom. People like to ask to see my phone and I always hate that my business is on display when I get a new message.

    I use handcent and in the opinions is an option for exactly what you are asking about. You can have it display "new message" instead of the actual text. You could also turn notifications off and download wimax notifier from xda and you will just get a blinking led and no notification on the phone screen.
