    Is there any setting currently in IOS 5(or the possibility of it being added) that would allow you to just have a passcode on the native "messages" app? Or can you already do that somehow and I just didnt know it(w/out jailbreaking)?

    Thanks

    I didn't quite get the question. Are you asking if you can use a passcode to lock for the messages app from being opened?

    Jetblack: yes, for example, I don't want/need to have to enter a passcode to use the phone, just to access the native "text messages" app

    I know what you mean. I would like that to be available to the "Photos" app too.

    I would love to see something like that implemented. Especially in the Photo app

    If your not doing anything wrong, there is no need to password protect apps. Sinners! ;)

    I can only hope you're joking. I hate the "if you're not doing anything wrong, then you won't mind if you have no privacy whatsoever" argument. I'm going to guess you are joking by your use of "Sinners! ;)", but unfortunately where I live (Kansas) most people actually think that way.

    It would be a nice option. I would use it on messages, safari, and pictures. I have nothing I'm ashamed of, just things that I would prefer to keep private.
