    First, sorry if this has been asked already. It's 4am here in NY and i've read so many threads it's crazy. :eek:

    I've gone through the phone many, many times.... I can't find any feature to disable the text message preview on the lock/home screens. I swear my iphone 4 on iOS 5 had an option to disable the preview's and just show a message came from so and so without actually have any text show up until you opened the actual message app... This really sucks cause i don't want people to see my messages when my phone is laying around and what not.

    Am i missing something? I'm no stranger to the iphone or ios but i can't find the dang option to turn off the text message previews :rolleyes:

    Edit: forgot the mention i'm on the iphone 5 obviously with ios6
