How do you hide text messages from popping up?

Has anyone figured out how to have your text not pop up! I know you can lock your phone and have it not show up, but what happens when someone ask you to see your phone because of it being cool and new and you get a personal text, they will be able to see the message that was sent to you! Any suggestions?

On my phone, I can go to Menu>Messaging>Setting and then select Only Icon. This keeps the messages from being displayed. Try your Settings Menu.

She must be speaking of a different phone. There is no setting option in the messaging screen.

The real answer. You can't. A recurring theme throughout Instinct.

This is thee most irritating thing about this phone. Where is the privacy?? Not only does it show your picture mail and text for everyone to see but it also saves the last 20 people youve text messaged or emailed! I think Im going to go back to my Treo if they dont fix the many problems with this phone asap!

Well, how about it Sprint Tech Support? Put down the Roledex and look at what your customers are telling you. This issue got a horribly bad response from the call center guru that told us to use some non-existent menu system. This forum is for the SAMSUNG INSTINCT. Please check your sources before writing it off as a resolved issue.
