Is there anyway to stop texts from reading across the top of the screen when its recieved? when recieving a text, it reads across the top of the screen, even when the phone is locked, is there any way to disable this?
Hey Bob. I also had the same problem with my Samsung phone. I couldn't find a way to stop text messages from reading across the top of the screen. What I did was to download GO SMS Pro from Google Play. It's a messaging app with a lot of cool features. You can also stop new text messages to scroll across the top of your screen.
To do it, open GO SMS Pro tap on Menu > Settings > Notifications Settings > Default notification settings. Under Notification bar settings, put a check on Notification bar privacy mode. Once you've done this, it will show "New message" instead of the new message's content. Hope this helps you :)
