    Is there a way to block the pop up notification for text messages while the iPhone is in use? I know you can disable the preview of the text. I don't even want the box to popup at all. I just want to the phone to vibrate like it does when an email comes in.

    Thanks.

    If possible I would like this solution to be free.

    dunt think there is an elegant solution out. right now it involves using iBlacklist or similiar call/sms blocker.

    Which mean you ahve to leave it running and its usually a big memory and battery hog not to mention its not free.

    A bit of this info is wrong. Iblacklist in cydia after jailbreak will do this and u can do this with the free version. Works great not sure about it being that much of a memory hog though

    I used iblacklist for a long time and never noticed any drain on battery. But the reason I uninstalled it is that it blocks all pop-up texts, not just those on the lock screen (my primary reason for installing). For example, if I'm surfing or gaming and get a text, I would rather see it immediately instead of just getting an icon saying i have a new text. Then you have to close the app, and open sms just to see if you need to reply. I would like an app that only blocks pop-ups when locked.

    Where's the option to block it in blacklist? I can't find it.

    Thanks. The iBlacklist option was exactly what I was looking for. I don't want any notifications while the phone is in use. I would much rather only have them on the lockscreen. If iBlacklist made this a setting I would love it.

    I think it's under extras then SMS privacy.
