I just replaced my S3 that was stolen a month ago with another S3. But when someone messages me the pop up on the main screen says new message, new message. On my old phone it would shoe who the message was from. I dont know how to set up the phone to display whos sending texts, i have to go to messages and see who sent it. any ideas?

Is this on the lock screen or the notification bar?

I don't have an S3 in front of me and I'm a little rusty with Touchwiz because I'm an HTC fan these days, but open Messaging app, hit menu key, then settings. Should be an option for "sender preview" or something along those lines that needs to be ticked.

on the main screen i now have a lock on my phone as the last one was stolen a month ago. on the main screen you get the yellow bubble and it just says new message where as on the other phone i had it showed who the text was from.

Did you read my last post? Try that and see if it comes through.

On the s4 at least, it's called preview message, and it's located int he notification settings part of the text messaging settings menu.

Yeah I knew it was somewhere in there. It's in the same section on my M8, but it's called "notification preview".

Samsung's messaging service does this it seems. Switch to Google Hangouts for SMS messaging and you can get your message previews as you had them before.

I'm not sure if there is a setting for this in the messaging settings...kinda nice to not see the message when it first comes in....especially for privacy
