Why is there no option to lock text messages on the iPhone I do lock my phone but I also used to let other people use it because they want to see how it works but I can't lock the text MSG so I won't let. Is there any app out there that would allow to password protect my text MSGs I would pay greatly for this app and I know others would aswell

3G, iPhone OS 3.1.2

    Unless Apple announces, there is now way to know why they choose to do anything.

    Really ?

    Then find a similar text App in the store, contact the developer and give them a chunk of cash to develop it for you. And between you and the developer you can make a tidy profit ")

    Its too close to the core system to get approved.

    Hey Apple, I want to show to My Friends My New Apple iPhone, because it"s very amazing. But I'm worried about that, because sometimes they open my sms and read all of my secret chats!!! *You need to lock it.* Really!

    All of you are free to provide feedback through the official channels but voicing your frustration here won't go very far as they don't look here when developing the software. I can kind of see where you're coming from but nearly all of my friends have the iPhone and no one has ever really brought this up as a concern or missing feature...

    In the meantime your best bet is to just set a lock passcode for the phone itself.

    If your friends like to snoop in your personal stuff, they don't deserve to see your iPhone.
