    I am about to upgrade to the firmware 2.1, but reading on one of the undocumented features, when you receive a text message, you get:

    "New Text Message"

    instead of

    "Name of person - Text that they sent"

    on your lock screen. I think that it is a lot more convenient to have the old way, is there anyway to get the old text message received notification back?

    Mine still shows the name of the person and a portion of the text (using 2.1). :confused:

    Don't get me wrong, I really like the name and just a portion of the text... Thanks

    When you get the text it doesn't say "New Text Message" immediately. First it says the name and a portion of the message, but if you don't read the message, it will eventually just say "New Text Message" on the lock screen.
