    Hi...I just got the Hero today and I am very annoyed by the SMS feature of displaying the text message on the screen. It seems that I can either have absolutely no notification of a new text message or I can have this major intrusion of privacy by having the message displayed for all to see.

    I hand my phone to people constantly to use at my job sites. I trust they are not fishing around in my phone, but when it just shows up on the screen, how can they help but read it.

    Is there a privacy mode or a way of turning off that display bar?

    HANDCENT SMS, you can customize it much more than the stock sms application, it's in the market, just search for handcent. :)

    Also, have a read of the post at the top of the hero list by lekky, some real useful stuff in there.
