    I agree. Its nice for when you're with people and not having the text shown to those around you?

    Not sure what the big deal, unless you're hiding something from a significant other.

    If you are at work it's not always desirable for them to know that your daughter has forgotten her PE kit, or that your wife loves you, or that your bank balance is -3000...

    Very true. Every other app asks whether you want toast notifications or not. Why not text messaging??? There have only been a few instances where I wish I could have been able to turn of it. A couple of those times was with my boss sitting at my desk.

    Its not quite the same, but you can if necessary suppress each notification by swiping across it left to right.

    Not a perfect solution I know but it might help in some cases.

    Exactly. I don't know why the first conclusion people reach is that one is trying to hide a love affair from another person. There was another thread about this and that was one of the first comments. Silly, if you ask me.

    My opinion is that I could care less if someone reads the first 5 words of a text I receive.

    But I know some people do and this should definitely be made an option

    Hiding something from a significant other was the first thing that came to my mind lol I keep mine either in my pocket or at my desk, so I guess I just handle my phone differently than some. Not attacking anyone, this seems a bit silly to me. I'd rather at least have the option to enable/disable this feature since I don't mind notifications and texts being visible.

    Now that I think about it, when I was showing off my new phone to my friend, his girlfriend sent me a winky face kind of text...

    It was a very awkward situation but it actually happens to me quite frequently. :|

    The first thing that pops into my mind as I read this thread is, "what are y'all doing that people in your office see a text message as soon as you get it?" On top of that, if I got a text and I saw someone trying to cop a quick peek, I'd punch 'em.

    ...

    Ok, I really wouldn't punch 'em, but they'd definitely get a stern "WTF!?" glare. :D

    Yeah I wish I could turn it off. I usually have my phone out on my desk at work because I'm either charging it or listening to music and people are always coming up to my cube to ask me things. Whether the screen is locked or not it shows the toast notification from my wife saying something silly, which I may or may not get made fun of later for...

    It's really quite amazing there is no way to turn it off.

    You do see that both of those were posted over a year ago and nothing has changed right? Also, there are other "turn off sms preview" feature suggestions on the windowsphone website that date back to 2010.

    It's not happening.

    I don't think you're trying to hide a love affair, I just think you don't want your colleagues seeing those XXX-rated messages you're sending to your honey!

    or... you guys could just turn your phone over... so everyone can look at the pretty camera you have rather than your, apparently, super private texts.

    Yeah, I was thinking alone that line too. Face your phone down, or put your phone into Flight mode.

    And no, I definitely wasn't thinking of an affair :|

    being able to view/delete the photos without entering the pin is also annoying (for lack of better term).
