How do I turn off previews of incoming text messages?

Preview incoming txt messages on/offEvery time you receive an incoming text message, your iPhone displays a little preview of the message. This can become annoying if you receive a lot of messages. In addition, you may not want others to see every conversation you have going on. By default, this feature is on. Here's how you turn it off:

  1. Open Settings> Messages.
  2. Slide the Show Preview option to OFF.

Stop your iPhone from showing previews of text messages as they come in.
