    LOL Good Im glad could be original

    Does Jailbeaking help it?

    Im used to my BlackBerry where if I get a notification it just flashed a pretty useless light. With the I4 it like comes front and center, I turned preview off just kind of annoying that it alerts the world.

    The thing about iOS4 is that you don't always return to the home screen. Without any kind of alert you may not know you had a text message for hours, and some people use texts for emergencies haha...

    I haven't heard of any jailbreak app which actually removes texting alerts.

    If you are nit concerned about getting a text as soon as it arrives, you can go to settings>sounds>text message and select none. Then it wound not make any sound. And since you have turned the preview off, then you would only know if you have a text buy looking at the SMS icon (for the badge) or open the message app.

    Doesn't work that way. You'll still get the popup saying you have received a text messages. That only prevents the message from appearing on the screen and no notification sound.

    Actually - It does supress the TXT message piece of it if you turn off Preview, but instead of showing the message itll just say TXT Message from (Contact) or the phone number it was received from. So technically you do supress the message but it would be nice if you could just leave the tone on and turn off the notify pop up.

    Popup Blocker in Cydia will do exactly what you need, but you'll need to jailbreak.
