    Unfortunately not, the only thing you can change is whether or not it shows a preview of the message itself.

    Jailbreak and buy BiteSMS.

    In the settings you can opt whether to hide the preview, and the sender.

    Jailbreak doesn't equal free apps.

    Actually bitesms is free, if you can put up with a small add on the bottom of the application. You will rarely if ever open up the main application

    LockInfo is the App you require my friend. Check Rock or Cydia & download.

    BiteSMS is worth every cent they're charging and then some. Every feature Apple's Messaging app lacks that you could possibly have ever griped about missing is either already in BiteSMS or in the current beta (hello custom individual SMS ringtones for your contacts, now in beta!)

    One of the best reasons to jailbreak, in my opinion, and yes, if you're willing to put up with ads, you don't even have to pay. It's my most used app, and light years better than the native one.
