    So I recently jailbroke my Verizon iPhone and have been doing a lot of cool mods to my phone. I have been in search of an app/mod that would allow me to keep a text unread when I get a popup notification. Right now even when I hit close the message is marked as read.

    Is there anything that can change this?

    biteSMS has this feature and a whole lot more. It is one of the essentials to install on any jailbroken iPhone.

    I don't really need all of these features but will install this app if it is the only way to get that one thing.

    It is an all around better texting app.

    You can compose a text from within any app/the lockscreen, you can read and respond to texts from any app/the lockscreen. You can save texts for later, you can view your recent text history from any app/lockscreen, or easily call people from the quick compose box.

    [Edit] Oh yeah, time stamps on every message, and (from within the text) tapping on the texts will hide the keyboard so you can see more of the texts. Plus tons of more features.

    At the iPhone hacks section.
    You can't go wrong with BiteSMS.
    Once you use you will love it.

    You can do this with the normal stock SMS app. Go into settings > Messages > "Show preview" and turn that off. You will not longer see the text message preview on the screen, but when you press 'Close' on the popup, it keeps it as unread instead of marking it as read.

    Hope this helps.
