How can I disable that incredibly annoying SMS preview at the top of my screen? This is particularly annoying when you get a lot of long text messages. The preview blocks perfectly useful areas of my screen (firefox address bar, text, ...). I already get a beep, a vibrate, a blinking led AND a notification in the notification area. There's really no need to make it any more obvious. If I want to read the damned message, I'll open the the SMS app and read it.

If it make a difference, I'm running

I agree that it should be tuned (some privacy settings), but not removed completely, or at least optional.

Sure, a setting would be fine, I'm not asking for the feature to be removed from SFOS. Just from my screen ;-)

I don't think so. That only fixes the behaviour when the screen is locked. I'm talking about the preview in general, not just when the phone is locked.

look again, in all comments, there is also a solution for preview in general.
