    this is my first participation in this forum... obviously :p
    and I hate the fact that I'm starting with a request but i got tempted to be honest because people seem profesional here :D


    for iPhone 5 !!!
    If its possible for someone to make the lock screen notification banner NOT show contact/sender's name. instead it just says "New Message" like how it used to be in old iphones if i'm not mistaking we use to get the option to show sender's name or not ...
    If someone could make this work for sms/imessage, whatsapp, email...
    would be GREAT.

    and please dont mention bite sms to me, I want this to be in the actual standard banner notification that comes in the iphone (looks cleaner in my opinion)

    If someone could manage to pull this off ill be very grateful.

    So all you developers PLEASE give it a try, for privacy sack people.

    My girlfriend saw a name of another girl on my iphone when i got a message and didnt stop crying... caused major headache

    plus one shouldnt be informing the world who hes contacting...

    sorry for making this long.. just explaining my view of the matter

    I don't think there ever was an option to block the sender's name in traditional iOS without jailbreaking. At most you get to hide the message contents by toggling "show preview" off in settings.

    I'm not sure if BiteSMS can do the tweak you requesting. Haven't jailbreak my devices for a long time.

    BiteSMS can hide the senders name. There's a free version available too supported with ads. I do recommend the full version though if you find the ads annoying.

    Wow that was fast :D
    Thanks for the reply first of all

    There was new message option before i dont think I'm imagining things haha


    I specifically asked not to mention bite sms
    I even said please. I have the paid version of it. And i dont like it. I also hate the pink logo
    Ithas more features. But i hate complications with 2apps having the same function (sms)....
    Back to the point.

    If you concentrate on the REQUEST part ull understand me

    If you go to Settings and then More Stuff you can change BiteSMS to use the Standard Apple Messages icon.
