I could've sworn this was possible . I turned on "5 Recent Message Notifications In Notification Center" and turned "Show Preview" off, but when someone texts me their whole text still shows up in NC ...
I also have "5 Recent Message Notifications" and "Show Preview" off. No preview shows when I receive a text...just a notification showing who the text is from.
Really ? That's so weird . I have banners turned off as well as lock screen message notifications turned off . You're running iOS 8 ?

Show Alerts from Everyone

Have you tried a hard reset of your phone? (Hold down the Home button and Lock button until the screen goes black and the Apple logo appears)
