    I have Lockscreen Info installed on my phone, which shows the texts I have received, and I would like to disable the text alerts that show up on the lock screen. However, I still want the alerts to pop up when the phone is unlocked, and I obviously still want the vibrate and audio alert. How can I go about doing this?

    You can turn message preview by enabling a passcode on the phone, and just set it for every 3 hours, I hope that is what you meant. Other than that, there is no way to completely disable notification, without jailbreaking.

    Wrong. Set a passcode, after that, there is an option to disable Text message preview. Turn it off, then take your passcode off. Job done

    What he means is that he doesn't want the notification pop-up at all! as the message is in displayed in his lockscreen. This can be done with iBlacklist of Cydia. It's in extras I believe and just SMS notification off or something. This will still play the sound and vibrate but no notification will appear on the screen.
