    Guys is there anyway where u can lock the txt message application to where it asks you for a password everytime to try to access it? i know u can lock the phone but can you lock just the sms, i know on the razrs you can do it. I was hoping maybe os 4 would bring this. I really really need this feature.

    Nope.

    If you're worried about others using/seeing your txt messages, why not lock the entire phone and not let them use your phone.

    because for example my girlfriend will ask me for my phone to act like she is just calling someone or using the browser, but in reality she loves to go through my text messages and is just so nice having access to everything else, but when someone tries to access the texts they cant.

    One point to consider - your girlfriend will probably be pissed that you locked out sms and may think you're hiding something. Either way she'll be unhappy with you

    Yep.
    If that's the case and she starts a fight, you should get rid of her:)

    I'd like it at the other way....she's calls that a relationship, snooping through his text messages?

    I think about the types of things my buddies send to me and the expectation that there's an element of privacy to those conversations.
