    The ONLY thing I liked about Android phones I had was how the screen didn't light up when you got a text. I feel like that could save me a lot of battery life since my phone is in my pocket when I get texts and I usually don't read them right away.

    I have a jailbroken 6 Plus on iOS 8.1.1

    Is there a tweak or setting out there that can do this? I still want it to ring/vibrate when I get a text, just not turn the screen on. Half the time my pocket manages to unlock it too and type random stuff lol. (I hate passwords.)

    LOL just kidding... but seriously, like the others have said just don't display in notification center\popup.

    Haha noooo no hiding here, faithful to the same girl since high school, 7 years and counting now but thanks for the suggestions, the notification center one works (completely forgot about those settings!) but I don't like it because it doesn't show that I have a new text from the lock screen now.

    I was hoping to have the alert/vibrate go off when I get a text but not have the screen turn on for it, BUT still have it showing on the lock screen if I were to hit a button.

    Right now it vibrates/rings but doesn't show anything on the lock screen to say I have a text.

    I know I was just teasing you... I do turn them off sometimes to. I don't want the bright light of a message to wake me up, but I don't want to use the do not disturb feature because if someone calls and it's an emergency, I want to be awaken ... awoken.... waken up.... whatever you call it. I want it to wake me up! LOL

    lockinfo7 allowed you to get notifications and what not without waking up your device. it is a pretty big change to the lockscreen though

    i'm not sure if lockinfo8 still has this feature
