    Where can I find a Cydia tweak that disables the typing/response "..." ellipse bubble from revealing when you are typing back or replying to an SMS/TEXT in iMessage.
    Sometimes I receive texts and don't want the person to know i'm in the middle of texting them back or responding to them, until I press send.
    I tried BiteSMS and it still sends them the "..." typing bubble as im typing the SMS.
    I would prefer just a tweak to disable that "..." response bubble, not an iMessage replacement app.
    Help is much appreciated!

    I have never heard of a way to disable the typing bubbles in imessage but im pretty sure it doesnt appear when sending a normal text message. I may be wrong but i dont think it is possible due to the way this apps work, it's the same with whatsapp and facebook messenger...
    But i would love to know if there is a way to disable this, as i hate when people see the typing and complain that i didnt sent them a response. :p
    Please keep us informed!!!

    There appears to be a Flex tweak for this, but I haven't tested it yet.

    Quickcompose with BiteSMS does not reveal to the other person that you are typing (or so I believe)

    Strange you don't want someone to know you're replying back to them...

    But I'm pretty sure you can't disable the "..." bubble from showing up on SOMEONE'S phone.

    How do you think that someone is getting a message from Apple's servers, saying that it should display the "..."? That's right, from YOUR phone ;) Finding out a way to disable/block that request while typing would essentially make it so that the "..." won't display on their phone.

    I still don't think there is a way.

    Try Flex, use it to go through the iMessage app.

    Mind sharing what you did so the OP can do this as well?

    Just to say thanks so much for mentioning flex. I'd never heard of until I saw this post and now I've spent all morning making my phone more awesome. Best thing is hiding the update notice on App Store. Thanks again!

    Out of pure curiosity... Why is that few seconds so important? I mean, why is it so dreadful that they see a "..." when you'll be sending the message in a few seconds anyway? :confused::confused::confused:

    Flex is a great JB tool. Uninstalled Springtomize 2 and a few other reduntant tweaks no longer needed thanks to Flex.

    I'm looking for a Flex patch that hides/disables Spotlight search on the springboard. Does anyone know if a patch for this exists?

    Why do you care? I hate when people ask how to do something and people start prying into their mind.

    Do you mean remove entirely or just the search on SB stuff? If the former, try NoSpot.


    EDIT: My god, Flex is incredible. Also liking the Metro-ish UI!

    Here's a situation where it might be useful. Say you send me a message and I start typing but then change my mind to reply later. Without this tweak, you would know that I started typing but did not hit send. With this tweak, you would never know. Makes sense?

    ----------

    NoSpot?

    My case I hate the delivered notification, I wish their was a a patch so it doesn't say delivered in the other side of the conv. I just hate people knowing I actually received their msg. Disabling the typing options its just a great add-on to what I want iMessage to be.

    Does turning the setting off for iMessages also remove the dots in Bitesms? Because there isn't a setting in Bitesms for flex to do this. Just curious if it also works for Bitesms when disabling for iMessages?

    Aren't you doing the same thing by asking that question? Calm down. As I said, if you had actually read it, "OUT OF PURE CURIOSITY".

    Thank you to the others, who actually gave useful and sensible answers, unlike this guy here.

    Keep your curiosity to yourself. Oh, and if you had actually read what I said, you would have seen I answered HickDead's post ;). What advice have you given in this thread?

    I'm sure you already know this, but "delivered" just means the message successfully made it to your phone, not that you've actually seen it. I actually love that feature, as I've experience many cases where actual carrier text messages never went through, and I waited hours/days for a response but the other person never even knew I asked something.

    However, like you, I do dislike the "read" feature, where it tells the other person what time you read their message. I have that disabled in my options, as I often reply to messages later when I have a chance, and don't want people to think I'm ignoring them.

    I figured it out on my own. No the patch does not work for BiteSMS. I just requested the feature/patch be made for BiteSMS on Reddit so hopefully someone makes it soon.
