    hey guys, is there a way to stop the stock text sms from showing the content of my texts in the status bar when a new text comes in and only show that a new text has come in? because showing the text content is really gonna get someone (me) in trouble one of these days...lol so is this possible like through tasker maybe cus i really dont wanna get another third party app like handcent, tho it is a good app...

    someone plz help

    Sadly I don't think It's available in the stock messaging app or through tasker. It is very easy up do in handcent though and if you think your in jeapordy of someone seeing something they shouldn't, you might want to just break doen and get handcent.

    tappin and a talkin

    I like handcent a lot. Its very customizeable and if you prefer the simplicity of the stock app you can do that to. But it comes with a lot more options.
