    Get Handcent or Go SMS, set that as default messaging app, then in notificatiin settings, turn on privacy mode.

    Are you talking about the conversation list or the quick reply pop-up? Or both?

    I can only advise trying different message apps until you find one which does what you want. I just looked at Chomp, and in the conversation list that also shows the number, but in very small characters under the name (so may be a little better). Can't remember what Pansi does.

    The stock messaging app on my phone just shows the name when in the conversation list, but as that's an HTC app you won't be able to install it on your phone.

    Edit: Just checked images in the Play Store. These show numbers on both conversation and pop-up for Pansi, conversation only for Chomp, and neither for Handcent. So that would suggest that there is a setting for it somewhere in Handcent.

    Why does it matter if the number shows? Just curious.

    its against privacy ... the people who sitting besides me while i am chatting to my friends note the number and misuse it..

    They always do this? Where do you live?

    I'd use a privacy screen protector, it's perfect if you always have people looking over your shoulder.

    Using Go SMS or Handcent, you go to the section of the settings where they let you adjust the color of the text, bubbles, etc in a conversation. Scroll down and one of the options is for the color of the font of the phone number displayed on top of the screen. Make it transparent. That would render it invisible.
