    You can lock certain pics and vids with PhotoVault and VideoVault, they both work great . I'm not sure what to do about messages, I erase mine after each conversation.

    There are 3 kinds of people: those who can count, and those who can't.

    I wasted 30% of my life in school. The other 60% was fun, though.

    There are a couple of competing apps (apparently from a falling out among a common set of developers) called "App Protector" and "Protector" that enable the user to not only password protect files but also applications, (e.g. messaging, email.) Essential for those using the Droid in a corporate environment where security of email is important.

    Or you can just make them hidden files by adding a "." before the file name

    I'm not sure about the . approach. Sticking a .nomedia file in folders that you don't want to show up in the Gallery works though.
