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.
