RAZR MAXX: how disable text preview in JB

2013-03-13, 6:40 AM


Hello,



I just got Jelly Bean on my Razr Maxx and was wondering if someone could please tell me how to disable text preview on the status bar (or anywhere)?  I don't want the content of any text messages to show anywhere unless I'm actually in the text app and reading the text messages.  If I receive a text while my friend is using my phone, I just want the notification icon on my status bar like we used to get with ICS.  My friend is not likely to be using my text app, so privacy is still maintained if I just get a notice that I received a text. 



I've tried different settings but I don't see anywhere to turn text preview off.



Thanks a lot!



Blue

I don't see a way to turn it off either. You could install a 3rd party app like Handcent. Handcent will give you that feature and many many more. Handcent almost has too many features. You can change just about anything you can think of with it. Hope this helps.

The only way to turn it off is to turn off all sms/mms message notifications.

I find Handscent far superior to the Stock app in every way.  Much nicer and easier to use and recieve text.
