    Yes you can, I did.

    Go into Settings, then General, then Passcode Lock.....enable the passcode lock, you will now see a new option "Show SMS Preview on/off" turn it off.

    Now when you get a text msg it will just say you have a new text message without actualy displaying the text message.

    The only downside is when you power on/off your phone you need to enter that passcode.....I set mine to 4 digits that are the same ex: 3333 so I get in fast.

    In the old firmware 1.0.2 it gives a few options for when you have to enter the code, meaning after 1 min, 5 min, 15 min and 1 hour. The new firmware 1.1.1 gives you one more option 4 hours. So after not using/touching your iphone for 4 hours and you want to use it, it will ask for the passcode.....with the 4 hour option I hardly ever get asked to enter the passcode.

    Why they don't just give the option to not display the text msg is crazy.

    Anyway this will work for you.

    You can't turn passcode lock back off....if you do then your SMS preview option gets turned back on automaticaly.
