Setting to show text (sms) notification on lock screen but not message content
Just about every phone I have will give a notification of a new text while locked. I know the iphone goes one step further shows a preview and who it's from.
For privacy reasons (work and personal) I might not want people to see who is texting me or what it says. I would like a simple message saying "2 new messages", or "1 missed call" on the lock screen, so I do not have to unlock it every time to check.
How do I do this?

Even if you turn off show preview, if you have your messages set to be listed in "Notifications", it'll show the details of the message in Notifications. I was messing around with this yesterday and couldn't find a way to make it NOT show the details of the message in Notification Center. The only thing I could think to do was turn Notification Center off. Bummer.
"Show Preview" off just makes the little pop up window say "Text message" or something like that. So it does a good job of keeping the message private. But the actual details of the message will still show in Noritication Center.
Unless I'm totally overlooking a setting?
