    Hello all,

    I have a question and I've been searching for the answer for days now. I hope you can help me. I did use the search button but I couldn't find what I was looking for.

    My problem is: the privacy of the text messages on the HTC Hero. I didn't want everyone to read the message at the top left of my screen, so I tried other sms apps. However, I can't figure out if it's possible to get a pop up when I recieve a new message WITHOUT the entire message immediatly displayed. I just want a pop-up like: 'new message from ...' cause I find it annoying that everyone can read the content of my texts when I recieve one!

    Is there an app where this is possible? I really hope you can help me out, thanks in advance!

    You could not leave your phone lying around for others to see.

    Seriously though, I don't think there is an app that does that. Although you could turn off the notifications altogether

    I know what you mean. I think there is another SMS app that stops it, but I couldn't tell you which one. I think it was also on this forum that I read about it, but I couldn't tell you which thread it was.

    Hope I helped...
