How can I turn off the home screen preview of SMS/text messages?

You may not want to see the little preview of text messages that turn up on your home screen when a new text (SMS) message comes in. To turn this off, head to your iPhone settings and go to:

iOS 7/8 UPDATE: Turn off text message, SMS and iMessage previews in alerts, banners and Notification Center with the following setting:

Settings -> Notifications -> Messages -> Show Previews -> OFF (gray switch, NOT green)

Turning off 'Show Previews' will disable the text message preview on your iPhone.

You can also use this screen to set other parameters for alerts, including Alert Style.

That doesn't work either. This issue is the silliest BS ever. Apple really needs to get it's act together and fix this. Text notifications should work the same as email!!!

this features is not working on the 2.01 update, it use to work fine on the 1.1.4 firmware but cant get it to work on this new firmware

For those of you who haven't found it somewhere else yet, its:
Settings>notifications>messages and there you can turn off the preview!

well done that was driving me nuts spent two day on net trying to find solution thanks for your help....

THANK YOU!!! That was driving me nuts.. I dont know why Apple thinks that should be open to the public. I would like to keep my conversations private.

Yessss thank u! U iPhone guru :)

THANKS!!!

Thank you!!!!

Thank you, you're a genius - I couldn't find that info anywhere and there seems to be lots of different ways to turn it off depending on which version you are running. That's great to know - thanks again.

thank you that has done the tirick for me too

This was what I was looking for thank you so much !!!

simple, effective , perfect ,,, the kind of fix i like, thanks, it was doing my head in !!!

Thank you, almost got a divorce over that....Stupid message came through and it was a joke but the wifey did NOT take it as one. I had the preview shut off but for some reason they were still showing up.

thanks so much

It still puts out the name of the person sending the text. Is there any way for my phone to notify me that I have a text without showing the actual text and who sent it??

Try this! Worked for me.
Settings> Nofications > Messages

This REALLY worked on my iPhone 4s:)
Settings>Notifications>Messages> Show Preview OFF

Yes Finally! It worked! This shit was pissing me off! Thanks! (happy dance)
