Hey guys...just got a quick question. Does anyone know when you get an iMessage or text, yet you don't want to answer it right away, but once you unlock your phone it goes straight to the text....it drives me crazy all the time. Anyone know if there is a way to make this not happen?

If you notice right after your phone goes off for the iMessage/text in your unlock slider it says swipe to reply. Simply don't swipe yet. Let the screen on your phone go blank and then unlock it and it will go to wherever it was when you left off

The thing is I don't care that it opens up the the messages, I just hate how it goes straight to the new message and opens it. It'd be so much nicer if I had to click on what message I wanted to view instead of automaticity opening....but thanks for the info gys!!

It's one of those things where you want it to work a different way depending on desires and you only notice how annoying the option you see is while ignoring how much the other choice would also annoy you.

The only time the "problem" exists is when the incoming text is what lit your screen up. If the screen has dimmed on its own, it no longer opens directly to the message.
As this problem exists only in that scenario, it means you wanted to get into the iPhone at the same time and had your task interrupted by the incoming text changing the action made by your slider. In the case the slider operated as the prior post suggested, when you were done with your task you would have to either opt to read the message through the message app or wait until the phone locked. At that point, the pretty little notification would be gone leaving you to either use the method I detailed or drop the NC.
Either way, if you're complaining that the few times that an incoming text directly coincides with a time you wanted to unlock your phone for other reasons, you'd complain about that too. That's true no matter how many devices you've owned.

A simple example of why this is useful:
-my wife sends me a text that reads "Can you send me Amy's phone number?"
To find it in my Contacts, I have to either:
-a) use the slider, which will open my wife's message. I then have to close out of Messages and open Contacts.
-b) lock my phone, unlock my phone, use the slider, open Contacts
Why not have the slider on the notification open the message, and the second slider just unlock the phone?
I think you have it backwards when you say "As this problem exists only in that scenario, it means you wanted to get into the iPhone at the same time and had your task interrupted by the incoming text changing the action made by your slider."
The actual problem is the reverse of that--not that you're interrupted in the act of unlocking your phone, but that you get an incoming text that makes you want to get into your phone, but not directly to the message.

When you look for "problems," you'll find them. Viewing this as a "problem" is evidence enough of a search. The change wouldn't stop the search. As such, the change would also be "problematic."

I'm not sure why you're against removing a step here--especially when it doesn't take away the current behavior. You can still go right to the message by simply sliding the notification icon.
I agree that people can fixate on what their devices don't do, but to me this is just not one of those times. To me this is more a case of needlessly redundant design.
