    Hi all,

    Just a quick question...

    I have two kids who probably use my phone more than i do (for games & other apps), but I also have a few mates who often text me using language that is common between the boys but quite unsuitable for kids.

    My iPhone currently displays the text of the message as it comes through. Is there a way to change this so it just displays the fact that I have a message and not the actual text?

    I know I could ask my mates to cut the language, which I will do if there is no other option, but it would be easier if the entire text didn't have to be displayed as soon as the message comes in.

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks,
    Cozzie.
