    I Have a question about this. So when you get a text message in ios5 it lets you slide the actually text message and it goes into the message application. but lets say you get a txt message and you slide to unlock your phone is there any way to stop that from going into the message program right away. no point in them both doing it. what if i don't want to respond right away

    thanks
    MTP

    Slide to unlock still does the same thing by going to your home screen if you slide the txt over it will go to the text app.

    They both go to the same program IF you swipe to reply immediately. If you don't answer it immediately, and go back to it after the phone sleeps, it will open the standard home screen if you just do the normal slide unlock. If you swipe the message, it'll take you to the message app.

    if u slide to unlock as soon as u get the message it does to the message application

    thanks, and there is no way to disable this i assume. I hate that they both do the same thing when u first get the message

    It's very redundant, and hopefully a future update will give us a little more control.

    Sliding the individual message really works best when you have more than one message. Then you can pick which message to open right away. But yeah, otherwise it's redundant.
