    Do you have the preview turned on or not? I am torn. I get paged for work and its convenient to be able to simply look at the lock screen to see if I have to call in or if its just a ticket got opened.

    On the other hand my wife and I sometimes have inappropriate text conversations and I'm worried that someone might read an inappropriate comment or see a picture if my phone is on the table or I'm like showing someone a picture on my phone.

    What do you do any why?

    There's an IM program called 'Yak' that features password protection and push notifications that give no details.

    My wife and I use text messages 99% of the time, but agree to use Yak for any comments we wouldn't want strangers to see.

    Best of both worlds.

    lol same for me "referring to bold"

    I keep mine on preview just for the fact its annoying to always have to unlock to see the message. I just keep the phone in close proximity to me.

    Check out a program called Avacado I just signed up for their premium service because they had a promo going on that if you install before 12/31/12 you get a lifetime subscription. Anyways try the free version out and let me know what you think. Great GUI/sexier than Yak.
